1860 Feb 13 Birth- Son- John Moriarty- Blennerville, Tralee, Kerry, Ireland, Baptism 20 Feb 1860, Father Jeremiah Moriarty, Mother Mary Griffin, Sponsors Daniel McCarthy. Catherine Griffin, Priest Rev. M. O'Sullivan

1860 Birth- Daughter- Mary Moriarty- Kerry, Ireland, there is no Church record on file for Mary. The date of birth is taken from her 1879 marriage record, 1900 & 1910 Census Monson Mass.

1862 Aug 18 Birth- Son- Jeremiah Moriarty- Blennerville, Tralee, Kerry, Ireland, Baptism 22 August 1862, Father Jeremiah Moriarty, Mother Mary Griffin, Sponsors Jerimiah Clifford, Mary Griffin, Priest Rev. D. O'Donoghue

Baptism and birth records were recorded in different ways over the years in Ireland. Prior to 1864 the only place Catholic births or marriages were recorded was in church parish registers. Starting in 1864, civil registration of births, marriages and deaths was required by the government, and were organized by registration district and volume. The registration districts were the Poor Law Unions (PLU) , comprised of the Townlands within the PLU. Note that the Civil registration dates do not match the Church registration dates. Either this was a subtle show of discontent with the Civil law or the date of registration was used instead of the actual birth date.
Province- Munster, Barony- Trughanacmy, Civil Parish- Annagh, Poor Law Union (PLU)- Tralee, Townland- Blennerville (DNA) use Tonavane or Lohercannan. Towns in Ireland were set up and named, over the generations, where ever people gathered for trade or mutual security. Not all towns or townlands, were given Civil authority. Blennerville is one townland where Civil recognition Does Not Apply (DNA). Blennerville is located on the boarder of Tonavane & Lohercannan Townlands.
In the 1800's the main language spoken in Kerry was Irish (Gallic), its is one of the few areas in Ireland where it is still spoken today. Church records in the 1800's were mostly kept in Latin. The on-line records today are transposed from Latin to English. Note below that Tonavane, as it sounded in Irish, was written in Latin and then transposed to English as Thallavedin. (Per the Archivist, Kerry Library, There is nothing even approximating to Thallavedin as a townland name in the general Tralee area. "As I mentioned on the ‘phone, I reckon it is probably Tonavane, severely misheard by the person recording the baptism.") Lohercannan came out as Lower Cannon.

The boarding house had 6 female and 7 male boarders. I surmise that the accommodations were male and female, group, rooms. They most likely register as brother and sister, to save money, thus are listed as single.

(note: Kate Martin is listed as 'Aunt to the Head of household', but is 15 years younger then Mary. It can be assumed that the Census taker spoke with one of Mary's daughters. That would make Kate Martin, Mary's sister, or sister in-law. Kate is listed as' Widowed', Martin would be her married name. Looking at the Baptism sponsors to Mary's children, Catherine (Kate) Moriarty marries Jeremiah Crowley. There is a Catherine (Kate) Griffin listed. This is most likely Mary's sister and the Kate Martin listed on this census record.)
