The awful murder of James Troy
(Have not worked out what relationship he is to our family)
From the Waterford News 31st Oct 1851
CONSPIRACY TO MURDER
This is the case which was tried at the last Spring Assizes, as against John Ahearn, who was then found guilty of the crime, and sentenced to death, but which was afterwards commuted to transportation for life. The indictment runs to the following effect:--
Witness—I obtained decrees against Maurice Ahearn and others—against Ahearn for £38, 6s. 10d., exclusive of costs ; the decree against Maurice Ahearn was since paid £20—the balance—was paid about a month ago ; the first payment was made upon it about the time the case occurred.
Edmond Lynch was next produced, and stated that he was a bailiff on the lands of Grange, and in the habit of assisting James Troy. He also proved to having seen Troy in the square of Dungarvan, and not far distant from the Ahearns, who were there also. [The testimony of this witness was of no importance.]
Bridget Troy [daughter of deceased] examined by Mr. George—I knew of my father making a distress upon the lands of John Ahearn, about a month before his death ; on the 20th October he left home about four o'clock in the morning ; I left the house about two o'clock the same day ; our pig had been taken by the police the same day ; I went to Dungarvan, which is about eight miles from home, and reached town about half past five in the evening ; I could scarcely see any one at the time, but for the gas which was there ; Maurice Ahearn was with my father when I met him ; I saw him at the Widow O'Brien's house ; when they went in first there was but a part of the company there, but they came in afterwards ; they sat down and called for three half pints of whiskey altogether, three half gallons of beer, and a shilling's worth of bread. [The testimony of this witness coincided exactly with that of Wm. O'Brien, up to the period of his leaving them in the square] We all went towards home then, passing up by the "White Joiner's" ; there is a gate on the side of the road between the "White Joiner's" and the Sluice ; I saw the car at this side of the Sluice with the four men in it ; while my father was walking, before he got into the car, he was between Patrick Brown and Maurice Ahearn, who were supporting him ; I did not see my father get into the car ; the women remained with me ; the men in the car drove on before us, but not very fast nor very easy—the night was dark, and they were soon out of our sight ; Brown had a single horse, which was ridden by his wife ; it was at the Dungarvan side of the Sluice I saw the car for the last time ; Ellen Ahearn and I went on together, and Brown's wife was behind with the horse ; at Roche's forge, in Killongford, we met Pat Brown facing towards Dungarvan—I did not see anyone with him, nor had he a stick with him then. [The witness stated that he had a handstick with him at the public-house.] He said he came back to see what was keeping us ; he waited for his wife who had not come up at the time, and Ellen Ahearn and I went on to the short-cut. [This was described as being a pathway over a hill, to avoid a more lengthy way by the high-road which wound round it.] We sat down at the end of the pathway to remain until Brown and the two women should come up ; we were not sitting there more than three or four minutes till we heard three blows given ; they were in the direction of the high-road as I would go home from where we sat ; I cannot say how far they were from me—they could not be far—they were heavy dead blows, and did not make a sharp noise. [Instead of sharp, the witness used the word bright.] Brown was in the opposite direction at the time, not having come up with the women ; I did not go by the way I heard the blows ; after hearing the blows we went back towards the forge and remained there till Brown and his wife and John Ahearn and his wife came up to us ; we all then proceeded towards home together and went up the short cut ; when Brown came up to us with the women, himself and his wife were riding the horse ; he came a part of the way with us up the path but said that he would not get to go that way with the horse, and that he should take him by another path down in the Glynn—I don't know how he went ; all the women went over the mountain, and Brown overtook us shortly after ; his wife got up with him then and went before us—they were at home when we reached his house ; I stopped at Brown's house that night and slept on a table in the room ; it was very late in the night when we reached there, and I remained but about two hours and got up very early in the morning ; Brown's wife and I went to Maurice Ahearn's house, which is about half a mile from it ; I went in and went up in the room ; Maurice Ahearn's wife was dressing herself, Ahearn himself was in the bed ; his wife said, "Biddy, it was Maurice made the noise last night" ; Maurice was then in the room and heard her say so ; I asked him why he did it and he said he did it to know if it were you were there ; he said that he parted with the car at Killingford short cut, and that it was on before him ; I asked him then where my father was, and he said he supposed that he was with John ; he said that my father and John were in the car then—Mary Brown was in the kitchen when he said that ; I went down to John Ahearn's house then—Brown's wife was with me ; I saw two girls there ; I went to the room door and heard John Ahearn speak—The Court thought that what John Ahearn said was not admissible on the present occasion.
Examination continued—I went to my father's house, where I remained for a short time, and then went to Patrick Brown's ; all the men were there ; I said to them, you are all here now but one, and you have not given me any account of him ; the three women went out and left me—I heard nothing of my father from them ; I went towards Dungarvan shortly afterwards, about the pig that was taken the day before ; it was then I heard of my father's death from the police ; I went to the place about three weeks after that to where I heard the noise, and pointed it out to the police.
John Deacon (process server) was next examined as to a certain expression used by John Ahearn in his presence previous to the sessions at Dungarvan. The expression was that a man named Farrell said to him (Ahearn) that the tenants had no spirit or they would go into the house and bring out Troy and make four quarters out of him.
A few Police constables were also examined, after which Counsel for the Crown intimated that they had closed.
His Lordship at the conclusion of Mr. Curtis's address charged the jury in as impartial a manner as it was possible for man to do. He recapitulated every particle of evidence and explained the law where he thought that they might not fully understand it, as it bore on the case under their consideration. The charge occupied nearly an hour in delivery.
The jury then retired to their room and after the elapse of about ten minutes returned into the court with a verdict of Guilty.

areas. The location of this small sept (which originated in Co. Clare but did not remain there) was in
Notes for David McBride:
David McBride, b. August 19, 1840, Windsor, Nova Scotia, son of John and Bridget (Doran)
d. April 28, 1903 after a long illness (Newton Graphic, 5/1/1903)
m. Catherine Troy, daughter of James and Margaret (O'Donnell) Troy, b. c. 1842 in County
Waterford, Ireland, and d. of heart trouble, December 22, 1906 (Newton Graphic, 12/28/1906).
On February 7, 1863, at age 21, he sailed from Halifax, Nova Scotia to Boston, on the Bark Halifax,
intending to become an inhabitant of the United States.
David listed his residence as Boston when he enlisted in the Sixteenth Battery MA Light Artillery on
March 8, 1864. He was mustered out at Camp Meigs, Readville, MA, on June 27, 1865. On
October 25, 1866, he was married to Catherine Troy by Rev. B. Hood in Waltham (MA Marriage
Records vol. 190, p. 256, #97). Since David had appears to have been included in the Nova Scotia
census of 1861, so he must have made his way from Windsor to Boston sometime between the
time the census was taken in 1861 and when he enlisted in 1864.
David first appeared in the Newton City Directory in 1868, residing in a house on Pine Street, near
River. Patrick McBride appeared at the same residence in that year. He was absent from the
1871 Directory, but was listed as residing in a house on Pine Street again in 1873 and 1875. In
1877, he had moved to a house on Cherry Street, near River. In 1881, he was a carpenter at W.
Pettigrew's, living in a house on Cherry Street near Henshaw. The 1885 Directory refers to a
house on Cherry Street "opposite" Henshaw. The 1887 Directory listed his place of employment at
71 Bedford Street, Boston, and in 1889 his residence was 309 Cherry Street. From my cousin
Paul E. Long, Jr., I know this to be a house which he built and in which his family lived until his
daughter, Alice, died in 1955. His obituary appeared in the Newton Graphic, Friday May 1, 1903:
Died.Generation 3 (cont.)
the Clogheen district of Co. Tipperary: their association with that part of the country is perpetuated
in the place-name Ballytrehy. O'Trehy is an older anglicized form of the name in use as late as the
seventeenth century, but now very rare: O'Trehy is a phonetic rendering of the Irish O Trioighthigh,
presumably derived from the Irish word Trioghtheach meaning a foot-soldier. The name in the 1659
census is spelt Trohy and it appears among the more numerous names in the baronies of Eliogarty
and Ikerrin, Co. Tipperary. Another place-name is Castletroy, now a suburb of Limerick. The name
was closely associated with that city and appears very frequently in its earliest records. Henry Troy
was Provost of Limerick in 1197. In 1198 the first mayor and sheriffs were chosen: between that
date and 1463 no less than twenty-one Troys held one or another of those offices. The best known
Irishman so called was Most Rev. Thomas Troy (1739-1823), Archbishop of Dublin: he was noted
for his strong and forcibly expressed views in opposition to popular Irish sentiment, e.g. his censure
of the priests who took part in the 1798 Rising, his denunciation of the Whiteboys and his advocacy
of the Union; he was also a co-founder of St. Patrick's College, Maynooth. The well-known
American painter of horses was not of this stock: his father was a Frenchman called de Troye, and
this family is also found in Ireland, where it has been gaelicized as de Treo.
Newton Graphic, Friday, December 28, 1906.
Mrs. McBride. Mrs. Catherine McBride, widow of the late David J. McBride, died at her home on
Cherry Street, West Newton, Saturday, of heart trouble, after a long period of failing health. She
was 64 years of age. Two sons and six daughters survive her. Requiem High Mass was
celebrated by Rev. L. J. O'Toole of St,. Bernard's Church, Monday morning at 9 o'clock and Rev.
Father Costello of Brockton, an old friend of the family, was in the church. There was a large
company of relatives and friends present and numerous floral tributes. The bearers were Messrs.
George Saunders, John Conners, Francis McGourty, Edward Lyons; Maurice B. Coleman and
William O'Brien. The burial was in Cavalry cemetery, Waltham.
The Cappoquin Parish (Co. Waterford) Records, birth register 1810-1870, p. 286, list a CatherineTroy who was baptised 07 Apr 1838. This appears to be about four years earlier than Catherine
(Troy) McBride was born.

MacBride at West Newton, April 28. David J. MacBride, aged 62 years, 8 months, 9 days.
Mr. David J. MacBride, a resident of this place for about 50 years, died at his home on Cherry
Street last Tuesday after a long illness. He was a native of Windsor, N.S., where he was born on
August 19, 1840. Deceased was a carpenter by trade and was for many years in the employ of
Brown, Durrell &, of Boston. He was a veteran of the Civil War, having been a member of the MA
16th Battery, and was a member of Charles Ward Post 62, GAR. A widow, two sons and six
daughters survive him. The funeral was held from St. Bernard's Church yesterday morning at 9
o'clock, high mass of requiem being celebrated by Rev. L. J. O'Toole, and a delegation was
present from Post 62. The interment was in Cavalry cemetery, Waltham.
*Note: All records in Nova Scotia and MA prior to this obituary carried the spelling McBride. In
1909, Harry D. changed the spelling to MacBride in the Newton City Directory, and all subsequent
references carried the latter spelling. The only reference I have seen between the above obituary
and the 1909 records that carried the McBride spelling was the obituary of Catherine (Troy)
McBride (see below).

The 16th Batty. MA Vol. Lt. Arty., the last light battery raised in MA, was recruited at Camp
Meigs, Readville, in the early part of 1864. Most of the officers and men were mustered into the
service March 11, and on the 17th of April the men were ordered to proceed to Washington.
Leaving MA, April 19, under command of Capt. Henry D. Scott, formerly a first lieutenant in
the 5th Battery, two days later the capital was reached, and the battery reported to Maj. James A.
Hall at Camp Barry near the Bladensburg Toll Gate on the northeasterly outskirts of Washington.
Here on the 29th of April it received a full equipment of horses and 3 inch guns. About the middle
of May it was sent to Fort Thayer, one of the northerly defenses of Washington, where it remained
for about a week, when it returned to Fort Thayer.
On June 1, having turned in its guns and horses, two sections were sent to Fort Lyon and
one to Fort Weed southwest of Alexandria, Va., where they were drilled as heavy artillery. On July
10, when Early with a large Confederate force was menacing Washington, the command was
ordered to Fort Reno near Tennallytown on the northwesterly outskirts of the District of Columbia,
but on arriving was assigned to duty at Fort Kearney. Here the men remained two days, until the
Confederate force had withdrawn from the front of the capital, after which they returned to their old
station at Camp Barry.
On July 13 the command was again equipped with four 12 pounders and horses and
remained at Camp Barry most of the time until September 5, when it was ordered to Albany, N.Y.
There it was stationed at the Troy Road Barracks until November 16, when it entrained for
Washington, and on the 19th was again quartered at Camp Barry. Here, November 26, it received
two more 12 pounders giving it now a full complement of a six gun battery.
On December 16 the battery crossed the Potomac and proceeded to Fairfax Court House,
where it reported to Col. William Gamble commanding the 1st Separate Brigade. One section was
then sent to Vienna on the Loudon and Hampshire Railroad and one to Fairfax Station on the
Orange and Alexandria Railroad, while the other section with the battery headquarters remained at
Fairfax Court House on the Little River Turnpike midway between the other two. Here the battery
remained doing picket and guard duty during the winter of 1864-65.
In March, 1865, it accompanied the 8th Illinois Cavalry on an expedition into Loudon
Valley, returning to Fairfax Court House where it remained until June 17 when it received orders to
proceed to MA. On the 18th it marched to Washington, and turned in its guns and equipment, and
on the following day entrained for New York. Remaining over night at the New England Rooms in
that city it then continued on its journey home. On June 22 the men arrived at their old rendezvous
at Camp Meigs, Readville, where on the 27th they were mustered out of the United States service.
However, delays occurred so that it was not until the 13th of July that they were finally paid off and
disbanded (page 546).
