Sorry can't help you with Michael's death, but as I have FITZPATRICKs from the Kildare/Laoise area in my tree, was wondering if the marriage cert gives Catherine's father's name, by any chance?
Kind regards

Thanks for that info. I'm not absolutely certain, but think my Fitzpatrick's father was either MICHAEL or THOMAS. Oh well, onwards & upwards!!

Hello bernardmurtha,

Below is a civil registration death index for the person that may pertain to your Michael Byrne, recorded in the Athy Registration District for the September quarter of 1909. While Michael had died in May (the second, or June quarter of the year) his death wasn’t recorded by the Athy registrar until the third quarter of the year, that is, the September quarter.

The index also gives his age at death as 83 years old. If Michael had been born in 1835, he would actually have been 73 years old when he died in May. He would have turned 74 years old in September of 1909.

The death index comes from the Latter Day Saints (LDS) website at:
