had issue:

  1. Michael Stack,
    bapt 15 May 1861 [Listowel RC par records],
    can't identify him in [Census, 1901], he is alive but not living with parents,

    to Patrick Mahony [of "Banmore", born 1870, Co.Kerry, son of James Mahony, farm labourer, and Catherine Stack, or Kate],
    "Banmore" would be either Banemore, Kilfeighny par, nr Listowel, or Benmore, Rattoo par, nr Listowel, unless it is an error for Bromore (see following),
    census shows that Mary and Patrick can read and write, but Patrick's parents are illiterate,

    they are listed at Bromore West in [Census, 1911], he is "farmer", his parents living with them,

    living at Killacrim with mother in [Census, 1911], he is listed as agricultural labourer, single.

  4. William Stack,
    born unknown date, [GROI] is WRONG to say born 9th May 1871, because we have his bapt confirmed (see following),
    born Kilcreen, nr Listowel, Co.Kerry [GROI],
    "of very humble origins",
    bapt 2 Apr 1871 [Listowel RC par records],
    [DMP records] confirm this is him, he provided them with a bapt cert instead of a birth cert,
    [Notes of Nora Stack] said born 2nd Apr 1871, this may be true, or may be confusion with bapt.
