Downes, John D. September 18, 1911

Norwich Bulletin (Norwich, Connecticut) September 19, 1911  
John D. Downes was born in County Limerick about seventy 
years ago, son of Connor and Mary Downes. He came to this 
country fifty years ago. He was married to Johanna Costello 
at St. Mary's Church September 10, 1864. He worked many 
years at the Chelsea Paper Co. and at many other places 
thereafter. He had not been employed during the past three 
years. He was a trustee of St. Mary's for 14 years.  

Additional Comments: From other sources I believe he was 
born in Ballingarry. His wife's parents lived in Bruree and 
other relatives also lived in these two parishes.
