DANIEL FITZPATRICK of Monamonra,
Co. Queen's (Laois) Ireland
DANIEL FITZPATRICK was born in
Ireland. He married MARGARET MARA. No marriage record for them
has been located.
DANIEL and MARGARET lived in
Monamonra (near Errill) in County Laois (formerly Queen's Co.) Ireland.
DANIEL was a listed as a
laborer in the 1869 marriage registration of his daughter Katherine.
In the original Griffith's
Valuation of Monamonra, Queen's Co., no Daniel is listed; however,
there are the following FITZPATRICKS listed as tenants:
FITZPATRICK (numbers 9 c and 10 on valuation reference map)
I believe that this is Margaret Mara and
that at the time of this valuation she might have been a widow.
The other two tenants on lot 9 are Maras.
The family story was that the Fitzpatrick originally belonged to the
See Mara Family of
Monamonra for more information about these Maras.
FITZPATRICK (number 11 a on valuation reference map) I don't know
anything else about this John.
FITZPATRICK (number 3 g on valuation reference map). I know a little
about this James. See Fitzpatricks
Monamonra for more information.

No baptism record has been located for Patrick.
**The year of his birth is in
question. His death certificate indicates that he was born in 1841.
However, the 1880 and 1900 Muskegon Co. census records indicate he was
born around 1847-1848.

Patrick Fitzpatrick lived in at the time.) No baptism record has been
located for Katherine.
