Ellen Mangan



Ellen Mangan in 1869.
This is [P106/40(3)].
See larger and full size.
See copy in [P106/40(2)].
See copy in [P106/40(1)].
On back of copies is written "mother" and "Rahilly" and "1869" and "mother" and "Mrs. O'R".
This is NOT Margaret McEllistrem (died 1866).





Ellen Mangan,
born near Shanagolden, Co.Limerick,
bapt 24 Nov 1835.
Grew up Gourbane, near Shanagolden, Co.Limerick.
Letter from T.F. Rahilly to his brother Richard, Aug 1866, says: "so my dear fellow tell me everything, and be most particular to tell me all about Ellen".
Letter from Jim O'Leary to Richard Rahilly, 7 Apr 1868, says: "I am glad you like Miss Mangan so well", but then recommends a different girl for him: "Miss O'Donohue of Caher [Caherciveen] would make the most suitable partner for you ... If you do not decide soon, you must come and see her in Caher".

Ellen was living Gourbane at time of mar.
See newspaper notice of wedding in [P106/318(1)].
She mar 13th June 1868 [her age 32, him age 28], Shanagolden [Shanagolden RC par records], [GROI],
to Richard Rahilly [bapt 31 Dec 1839] and had issue.
They were mar by Rev. James McCoy. Witnesses Denis Mangan and James Nolan.







Marriage of Richard Rahilly and Ellen Mangan, 13 June 1868 [Shanagolden parish records].


 

This is probably Ellen Mangan around the 1860s.
This is [P106/1669(1)].
See larger and full size.
See back. Says "Mother". Photographer is Limerick.
The P106 catalogue groups this with some old O'Donoghue photos, but that seems unlikely. It looks like Ellen Mangan.
"Mother" is also written in similar handwriting to "Mother" on the photo above, which is definitely Ellen Mangan.



Ellen Mangan.
Photo c.1887.
Detail of this picture.



Stuck to this negative is the caption: "Mrs. Rahilly" and the date: June 1893.
This must be Ellen Mangan. But unfortunately the picture is blurred.
See larger and full size. Image 6597 in Humphrys glass negatives.



Nell Rahilly, Dick Humphreys (born April 1896), Ellen Mangan (widowed March 1896).
Photo c.1896-1897.
See larger and full size.
See copy in [P106/995].
The P106 listing thought the baby was Sighle (so photo would be c.1899-1900).
Widow's dress (and absence of other child) suggests more likely Dick.



This is [P106/298].
Caption says Ellen Mangan (would be head of table), Anna Rahilly (behind her standing on right) and others.
Caption says Quinsborough (doesn't look it).
Photo would be c.1900.
See larger and full size.



Think this is Ellen Mangan.
Looks like Quinsborough.
Looks like Anno reflected in the mirror (or is it a window) taking the photo.
See larger and full size. Image 7065 in Humphrys glass negatives. Light-adjusted. See original.



Think this is Ellen Mangan.
See larger and full size. Image 6374 in Humphrys glass negatives. Light-adjusted. See original.
