Letter from Cappoquin, 1925

(a priceless little historical gem)

The letter below was plainly sent to Michael Condon (in New York, USA) in response to one from him to the Catholic church at his Irish birthplace, Cappoquin, County Waterford.  The letter's contents, especially the names of Michael's parents, prove conclusively that he was the Michael who left Cappoquin around 1867 (with wife Alice, and son Patrick) for Jersey, in the Channel Islands, before later departing for the New World.


The letter has been handed down in the American branch of the family, and the scanned copy was supplied by Michael Condon's great-granddaughter, Cathy Piper.
