16/9/2008 - Possible progress, but to be confirmed: In parish records of Bonane & Glengariff the baptism record shown below was discovered:
On 7/7/1850, at Derreenaclarig, Demitrius [Jeremiah] son of Demitri [Jeremiah] Scully and Maria [Mary] Harrington baptised. Sponsers [Godparents] were Dionysius [Denis] Scully and Maria [Mary] Scully.
If this is the correct record, this would put Jeremiah Scully's birthplace in County Cork and not Co Kerry, Ireland as previously thought.
