John Coll is my gr grandfather. He was born in 1830 in Cloonlateive, Castlereagh, Kilkeevin, County Roscommon.

His father was Patrick, but I have no more details of him. John's wife was Mary Greavy, born 1841.

John and Mary settled in Liverpool. I wonder if there are any connections out there ? Ring any bells ?

Regards - Ursula Glover kujp.glover@ntlworld.com

At Griffith’s Valuation, Patrick Coll occupied 14 acres in Coolougher townland, Kiltullagh Civil parish.

Coolougher townland adjoins Cloonlateive townland, Kilkeevan Civil parish.

See maps http://www.leitrim-roscommon.com/LR_maps.html

Look for Coll on the 1901 Census page of this web site.

If you check the LDS Continuing Valuations film listed below it will show when the first Coll occupied land – maybe as a result of a marriage.

Dear Ursula, During the War for Independence in County Roscommon 1918-1921, a Nurse Coll was very active with the Volunteers. She lived up in the Cloonsuck area. She was a nurse trained in the United States, and when she was home for vacation and such, she helped treat the IRA men who would come to her with their "Republican itch" and worse ailments. (The Republican itch" was a slang term used to describe a breakdown of the skin caused by wearing the same clothes for many days. When men were on the run, they couldn't carry a change of clothes without attracting attention of the authorities.) Nurse Coll's home was back off the main road, and Sean Bergin (a Tipperary man who was very active with the Roscommon IRA in the Castlerea area) was extremely sick with pneumonia. He was moved into her home, and she tended to him. Nurse Coll later married D. Mulrennan. Given the Coll name and the location of the family, I feel pretty sure that this is one of your relatives. Several men I interviewed spoke with great reverence about her. She risked a lot to aid them.
