When James was old enough he ran away from home, believe this was about 1912. He did this as the family was so poor and there were still possibly 8 brothers and sisters still at home. when he arrived in England he moved to Accrington in Lancashire. When WW1 broke out and later conscription came in he said he wasn't going to fight for the British. He was in those days a strong Irish republican.When he received his call up papers he moved to Barnsley and changed his name to Harry Keaveny. He was later conscripted into the Royal Horse Artillery.1 He married Lilian Greathead, daughter of Charles Christopher Greathead and Hannah Harper, on 20 September 1919 in Parker Street Church, Parker Street, Barnsley, Yorkshire, England, Witnessed by Albert Goulding and Hilda Greathead.

Harry was a boiler fireman.3 He was a colliery trimmer working below ground after he came out of the army.1 When Harry was reaching his retirement age the pension department asked him for his birth certificate to prove his age. Of course he didn't possess one, So he sent to the registrar in Dublin. when it arrived it gave his date of birth as 15 September 1895 Not the 8 June as was believed to be his birthday and his family still do, His response to the 15 September date was "my mother knew my birth date better than any priest".1 James died on 13 May 1976 in Barnsley, Yorkshire, England, aged 81.1 Harry was buried on 14 May 1976 in Barnsley Crematorium, Barnsley, Yorkshire, England.1

Mary Goggins née Keaveney
     Mary Keaveny was born on 15 February 1920 in 3 Bradbury Street, Barnsley, Yorkshire, England.1,2 She was the daughter of James Dunleavy and Lilian Greathead.

Her first job on leaving school was in a Sweet (Candy) shop. This she did for about two weeks, before she was given a job in a wooden mill in Shipley, Yorkshire. She was employed as a cone feeder. To do this work she had to live away from home, Shipley being about 40 miles away from Barnsley at the new Co-op jam factory. This job is the occupation that it is believed Mary had done after leaving school. Oh and her father asked for eight shillings back!

She did this work at the jam factory up to 1940 when she was called up for the WRAF. This lasted for less than one year due to her hearing (she had a mastoid operation when she was a child.)1
She married Michael Edward Goggins, son of Michael Goggins and Sarah Anne Smethurst, on 5 May 1944 in Holy Royd, Barnsley, Yorkshire, England.1 Her husband Michael died on 18 June 1983 in General Hospital, Barnsley, Yorkshire, England, aged 70.1,4 Mary died on 3 November 2009 in Barnsley General Hospital, Barnsley, Yorkshire, England, aged 89 from Sepsis, urinary tract infection and acute renal failure. Her daughter Margaret registered her death stating her Mum has a retired postal worker.1 Her body was cremated after a requiem mass in Holy Rood Catholic Church on 12 November 2009 in Ardsley Crematorium, Barnsley, Yorkshire, England.1
