Joseph Jennings was the seventh son of Daniel Corley Jennings and Johanna Bray. He was born and baptised in Tramore, though the transcribed records appear to be incorrect and he is likely to have been born in 1860. A birth date of January 1859 is clearly impossible as his sister Mary was baptised, also in Tramore, on the 25th of August 1858.
Baptised Tramore 11th January 1859. Joseph, Daniel Jennings and Johanna Bray.
He died on the 31st of January 1870, aged 10, and is buried in Drumcliff Cemetery, Ennis, County Clare. The inscription on his grave reads as follows:
Erected by DC Jennings C.I. In memory of his son Joseph who died at Ennis January 31st 1870, aged 10 years. May he rest in peace, Amen.
