Margaret Leota Smithwick
Taken about 1878
      She was daughter of Irish immigrants and she was youngest of five children. Her nickname was "Maggie". She was a wonderful seamstress;always dressed up & quite a lady. She could sew anything without a pattern. She died at Longwood Rest Home in Chicago, IL. She was there 2 months before her death. She was living with her son, Jess, until that time at 2512 E. 72nd St. in Chicago. On her death certificate lists her parents as being born in Dublin, Ireland. Other records (family Bible) state Tipperary, Ireland. Her death certificate states she died of carcinoma of uterus with extension to bowel & bladder. She died at 11:45 pm. Other conditions listed on death certificate: arteriosclerosis, stroke.
     This is a picture of old St. John church (1854 - 1888) located on John St. in New Albany, IN. The church is now torn down. This is where Will & Maggie were married. A new church was built at where Thirteenth crosses Spring St. The name was changed to Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church ( 1888 - 1958). It then was moved to 2796 Charlestown Rd. & the name was changed to Trinity United Methodist Church.
     He came to the United States in 1848 (during the potato famine) with his wife , Johanna Leota Harland, & family; his brother, Oliver & his family came with them also. William was born in Tipperary, Ireland according to Bible records. Johanna was born in Dublin, Ireland according to her daughter's death certificate. Her father was James Harland/Harlan. I have not been able to find out anything about him; possibly his wife's name was Emma.
     William resided at South Vincennes in New Albany, IN. On July 12,1855 he bought a parcel of land from Ezekiel R. Day & his wife, Lucinda. He paid $300 dollars for the tract of land located in New Albany, IN.; the North 25 twenty five feet of Lot N# two fronting Upper Vincennes St. 25 ft. & extending back the same 120 ft.

viii.// Smithwick, born Abt. 1775; married John Cashel White April 1793 in Barnalough,Co. Tipperary,IRELAND.


Generation No. 5

16. 
John Smithwick, born Abt. 1690 in Abbey Athassel,Athassel,Co. Tipperary,IRELAND; died 1769 in Abbey Athassel,Athassel,Co. Tipperary,IRELAND.  He was the son of 32. William Smithwick.

Notes for John Smithwick:
     Athassel Abbey, co. Tipperary, Ireland - Athassel Abbey just outside the village of Golden and five miles from Cashel was built around 1200 by the Anglo Norman William de Burgh. The priory and Athassel town were burnt by the local Irish ruling family, the O'Briens in the 14th century. Parts of the priory's cloisters, gatehouse and chapter house are still standing. The town was never rebuilt after being burnt the second time.
     Athassel abbey  - Athassel, Ireland
Set in an idyllic landscape of verdant green rolling hills along the banks of the River Suir, the ruins of Athassel Abbey stand as a romantic symbol of Ireland’s legendary past. Dedicated to St. Edmund, the abbey was founded in 1192 by William Fitz Aldem de Burgo, a Norman aristocrat, for the Augustinian Order. Athassel grew to become the largest medieval priory in Ireland and a force in local politics. Unfortunately, this led to friction with the local ruling family, the O’Briens, who put Athassel to the torch in the mid-fifteenth century. Surviving features include the chancel with its lancet windows, multiple carved elements, the remains of the cloister, and the bridge with its associated gatehouse. Although the site is recognized by the government as a national monument and protected structure, Athassel suffers from many of the problems associated with ruins. Exposed to centuries of Ireland’s constant rains and brutal winters, the rate of deterioration is accelerating. The effects of natural aging, water penetration, and vegetation have been compounded by cattle grazing about the monument. Seasonal flooding of the site further exacerbates these factors. To date, a conservation plan has yet to be developed and a comprehensive solution involving all of Ireland’s heritage bodies is required to secure Athassel’s future.



Children of John Smithwick are:
i.Peter Smithwick, born Abt. 1710 in Kilduff Castle,Kilduff,Pallasgrean Parish,Co. Limerick,IRELAND; died 1780 in Mt. Catherine,Pallasgrean Parish,Co. Limerick,IRELAND; married // Apjohn 1730; born in Linfield,Pallasgrean Parish,Co. Limerick,IRELAND.
