John Tinneny B20

John Tinneny was born at Goladuff June 1890.  He was the first child of Bernard Tinneny and Margaret McEntyre.  The Rev. Hugh Ward baptized him at Saint Mary's Church, Newtownbutler on June 22, 1890.  His godparents were Henry Reilly and Rose Ann Gould.  In the census of 1901 John was listed as being 10 years old and able to read and to write.  He did not marry. 



On April 18, 1917, John died of tuberculoses in Monaghan General Hospital, County Monaghan.  His father Bernard died the day before.  Both were buried in the family plot in the churchyard of Saint Mary's Church in Newtownbutler.  Like other entries on the grave marker, either the year of his death is incorrect or his age at death is incorrect, since both church and census records indicate that he was born in 1890.
