78 Per Anthony Arthur: most likely this Henry was born out of wedlock to Michael Smithwick of Mount Catherine (

Per Fiona McMahon: Henry may have been disowned by family for marrying a catholic as this Henry was not catholic. A story from the non catholic Dagg side of the family is that Henry was not born out of wedlock but was written off by his family when he ran off with Anne Hogan niece of a local parish priest. Morgan paul mc Mahon account letter also indicates his wife's mothers father converted as a result of marrying a catholic Carey. A genealogist who I commissioned also told me that one of the land deeds suggested this Henry was closely related to Peter smithwick of Shanbally & to mount Catherine Smithwicks. My sense is that Henry's father was either mount Catherine William or Williams son Michael or from another son of William.

Daniel O'Connell used to dine with Father Crotty and Ann often sat on his knee as a child. Source = Morgan Paul McMahons letter of account. Woodford House built in 1821 in Castleconnell was held by Patrick Carey junior in early 1850s, his father was William Pat Carey of Woodrow died 05 Dec 1809 age 36 yrs. Carey, Anne Mary (I716)

87 Remembrance from Monica (Johnston) Pepicelli:

Friends - this is a bit long but the war stories are interesting to read

Wanted to let you know that my 95 year old father (William S. Johnston) passed late yesterday afternoon. His passing, while not tragic at his age and because he has lived a vibrant and full life, will still be tinged in sadness. My dad was part of the "greatest generation" as that era of Americans are now referred in vast appreciation. He was an Ivy League graduate (Brown) and started his own successful advertising firm (Johnston Marketing Group) in Tarrytown NY, in the 1970?s, after having spent 10 years at TWA.

He left college in his senior year and served as an Captain in the US Army Air Force in WWII as a pilot of a B24 Liberator and was a Squadron Leader in the USAAF 7th Bomb Group out of India and bombing the Japanese along the Burma railway. His goal was to cut off communications and the transport of ammunition and supplies by the Japanese. He was also tasked to fly gasoline (and sometimes alcohol :-) ) from India to China to supply American and British Air Bases deep in China.

A few stories from his WWII career:

His route was over the hump (or Himalaya Mountains from Kuprmitola India (now Dhaka, Bangladesh), to Chengdu, Sichuan or Kanchow China. The route was known as one of the most difficult anywhere. My dad had to fly over trackless jungles in Burma and the rugged uncharted Himalayas (the highest mountain range in the world, with extremely unpredictable weather such as monsoons, thunderstorms and winds over 100 miles/hr. He and his crew would fly between 12,000 and 30,00 feet in an unpressurized plane with a leather jacket, hat and oxygen mask! Imagine doing that today!!!

His Colonel wanted to be more effective with the bombing of the supply lines and devised a new concept: ?Dive? Bombing in a B-24, a huge feet given the size of these planes. They achieved this by installing a bomb release button on the pilots wheel. The method was to approach the target at around 5,000 ft and ?diving? down to a pullout between 1000 to 1500 feet or less, depending on terrain, giving the B24 pilots the opportunity to drop down low, aim the plane and drop the bombs. The planes generally cruised at 156 t0 170 mph, so when they pulled out of a dive it was at around 200 to 210 mph giving the plane a nice upsweep with those big wings. The success of this bombing technique allowed my dad and his squadron to make three passes at a supply dump target to ensure accuracy so as not to endanger the POW camps right next to the supply dumps. Mission achieved!

He was the first to bomb the Bridge over the River Kwai (and yes, someone else claimed it but he knew it inside and that was enough for him). And unlike the bridge in the movie, which was made of bamboo, and destroyed by Alec Guinness, the real bridge was a steel reinforced bridge seen below in current condition repaired from the bombing (photos below). Beyond that, he led the longest military flight in the ENTIRE war on a bombing mission from central India "thru/not over" the Himalayas to eastern China and back.

He was awarded the Air Medal, the Distinguished Flying Cross, Pacific Service Medal, Distinguished Unit Badge and the American Services Medal.

When the war was over, he returned to Brown University to finish his college education and begin his career in advertising with a job selling the Today Show with Jack Parr. He then moved to TWA for most of the 60?s and made sure his family was able to travel all over the US and Europe to experience different cultures. ($5pp back then?Yes! Standby at $5 per person!)

Dad was an exceedingly decent and modest man of great integrity. He was a gentleman always and is a man who leaves a big shadow over our family which numbers 23 children and offspring. He outlived my mom, Catherine by 20 years. He leaves his loving family of four daughters and his devoted son and four sons-in-law and of course, his grandchildren. He was a great dad who always loved adventure. He wanted his family to experience all the world had to offer. 
Johnston, William Smithwick Sr. (I202)
88 Retired as Quarter Master Sergeant Major from the 70th Regiment of Foot and East India Company.

From Catholic parish registers: "illeg"

Based on the information that we have so far, one hypothesis is that the father was Michael Smithwick of Mount Catherine. The geography and timing fits, and the Connell name was associated with Mount Catherine:

Received a pension in 1869. "Pension The undermentioned warrant officer is admitted to pension as specified opposite to his name Sub conductor J Smithwick of the army commissariat department 2s 6d a day as sergeant major payable in Europe This cancels GGO No 2 of Jan 6" in "Allen's Indian mail and register of intelligence for British and foreign India", p. 567.
