    Maymond P Mc Evoy

    •  
    Name: Maymond P Mc Evoy
    Gender: Male
    Age: 5
    Birth Year: abt 1906
    Relation to Head: Grand Servant (Servant)
    Residence Date: 2 Apr 1911
    Townland/Street: Gort Town
    District: Gort
    County: Galway
    Household Members:
    Name Age
    Francis Barry 55
    Mary Barry 55
    Mary Ann Barry 33
    Patrick C Barry 19
    Agnes M Barry 15
    Gerald A Barry 13
    Philomena M Barry 11
    Margaret H Mc Evoy 3
    Maymond P Mc Evoy 5
    Margaret is listed as grand-daughter on the census above and Josephine is a Barry so I'm betting that Francis is Josephine's father. And WHO makes a five year old a servant? What kinda grand daddy is that? I'm showing this to my kids. They are lucky.
    I'll tell you WHO! Ancestry!

    Yikes. I need to look at the details.

    Servant gee whiz Ancestry.
    Between the spelling and transcription errors I'm surprised anyone finds any ancestors.
    I was wondering the same thing when I read this... is that a normal thing back then to list the male as a Grand servant and the female as a Grand child... poor boy was only 5 years old, how could he be some type of servant??? Made me think they adopted them to have them as servants later on.... Did not know about the mother Josephine being in the picture at all. I had to laugh at your comment "Im showing this to my kids"!!!!!
