While I was looking for some Fanning graves in Killinan Cemetery I came across all these Callanan and Callinan graves. I didn’t find the Fanning grave I was looking for unfortunately.

The grave I was looking for is listed by Jim Ryan as”Erected by John Fanning of Thurles in memory of his wife Margaret Fanning alias Fitzpatrick who died September 25 1864 aged 52 years”. If anyone finds this one in Killinan I’d like a photo.

While there is no direct relationship to Callanans and Fannings they were frequently witnesses and sponsors at Fanning marriages and baptisms and so must have been family friends and perhaps related. Some of these graves are the oldest I saw in cemeteries in Co Tipperary. I would like to hear from any Callinans who know of a connection between the two families.

Edmond Callinan was godfather to John Fanning born 20 May 1809, Andrew Callinan godfather to Michael Fanning born 23 Sept 1810, and John Callanan was godfather to Mary Fanning born 20 Mar 1821 and Mary Callinan sponsored Patrick Fanning born 4 Dec 1826. These were all children of Edmond Fanning and Judith Darmody. William Callanan and Mary Callinan were godparents to Edmund Fanning born 29 June 1835 and Michael Callinan sponsored Catherine Fanning born 28 May 1837. These were the children of John Fanning and Margaret Fitzpatrick who I believe, but don’t have absolute proof, were thre grandchildren of Edmund and Judy Fanning nee Darmody. This would make John Big Bill’s brother. (Big Bill being my gggrandfather who emigrated to Australia in 1841).

Killinan is a small cemetery. The gravestone inscriptions have been transcribed by Jim Ryan for IGP. Below are his entries for Callanan.
