Need help with a US census record that gives  Abbedieux, County Green as the birthplace of my great grandmother, Anna Bacon, in 1836.
Abbeyleix, in County Laois, is the closest I can come to Abedieux. Could there be a "green" townland in Laois?
Was there ever a county nicknamed "Green"? (Yes, I know how absurd this sounds. I've been to Ireland. I wish they'd recorded something less obvious.)

Hello Martha!

It's great that you have traced your Irish genealogy that far! This is indeed a bit complex.

I would suggest having a look at the church and civil records in Co. Laois to see if anything matches, using Abbeyleix or your great grandmother's birth name as a start. 

Please feel free to create your own thread on the forum so that other forum members can jump in as well.

I wish you the best of luck!

Wow, this resource is so insightful!

I have passed some of this information to my aunt who is tracking down our Irish heritage!

Thanks,
