John NOLAN, the husband of Maria,
née WHELAN, died in DUBLIN (Leahy Terrace, SANDYMOUNT) on August
23rd, 1862, at the age of 63 years (born about 1799). He is
buried together with both his parents in the family vault in the
SLEATY Old graveyard (County LAOIS).
His father was John NOLAN,
of KILBALLYHUE House, County CARLOW. John, his son, also of
KILBALLYHUE, was Justice of Peace of County CARLOW at the time
of his death. I have been told that after the death of John
NOLAN, the J.P., his widow, Maria, née WHELAN, did sell the
NOLAN estate (KILBALLYHUE Park). And did come back to DUBLIN
where the WHELAN family was living. That I do know for sure.
The above Info was supplied by Claude-Régis POLLET (June 2020) who is a
desendent of Whelan family.
