SULLIVAN Family in Ireland - HELP

Hi, some years ago I came up against a brick wall while researching my Grandmothers side of the family and put my researches aside as being unable to progress further.

I have recently picked up the file again and discovered something that I missed before which has restarted my research.

I have a reply to a question I placed on another Genealogy Forum but can't seem to find the Forum any longer.

I have been trying to solve a mystery in my family.

My Grandmothers marriage certificate shows her Fathers name as Jeremiah SULLIVAN.

When I look at the various UK Census records he is listed as Thomas SULLIVAN. The reason I know it is one and the same is because all the family members are correctly listed under him on the Census forms.

Someone, provided me with some information back on 25 January 2013, whose user name was lebeeuk by stating that they had found a record showing Jeremiah Thomas SULLIVAN, but without saying where this record came from.

I am posting this query as I really need to see the record where it shows Jeremiahs middle name as Thomas.

I have looked on the Roman Catholic Parish Registers for Kilcummin Parish, Kerry, Ireland but there is no indication of his middle name that I can see.
His Baptism Date was 23 January 1842.

If anyone can help me find where his middle name is recorded I will be very grateful.

Very many thanks.

Name: Jeremiah Sullivan
Baptism Date: 23 Jan 1842
Baptism Place: Roman Catholic, Kilcummin Parish, Kerry, Ireland
Father: Jeremiah Sullivan
Mother: Anne Downy

No indication of the name Thomas here. I haven't found any that belong to this baptism. Judging by the uploads on Ancestry, there is much confusion about your Jeremiah. I see there were others, but as usual not very well researched.

Hi Amanda,

Thanks for your reply.

I have ordered a copy of Jeremiahs death certificate in the hope that this might clear up the confusion.

I am not very hopeful though as the correspondence I have from his family members do not include the name Thomas anywhere.

The memorium cards I have for Jeremiah also do not have anything on them apart from Jeremiah Sullivan.
