"I was able to look up the record online from John Rourke died Feb. 18, 1869 in Kilfeagan at age 79. He is listed as a widower. Present at his death was James Rourke. Cause of death is given as senile decay, one year certified. (Whatever that means). The only thing is he died in Kilfeagan, not Ballintur."
