Brian O'Cathain Kane My grandfather, Thomas Kane, was with "B" Company, 8th Battalion of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers.
He was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1878 and joined the Fusiliers as a young man, He served in South Africa during the Boer War. During the week of the Easter Rising in Dublin 1916 he was on his way to Verdun during WW1.His battalion was camped overnight at Loos 29 April when a German gas attack on the Irish trenches caused devastation. About 1,590 injured and 538 dead including my grandfather. His death is recorded on Panel 127-129, Loos Memorial, Pas De Calais, France.
His widow, my grandmother, later married an American soldier holidaying in Dublin c1919 and moved to America, leaving my father behind.

We have a Sargeant Arthur Kane, 6th.Royal Dublin Fusiliers in the family. We dont know if he was a brother of Thomas Kane or a close relative. I have checked the Commonwealth War Graves site but there is no mention of an Arthur Kane. We do know that he was killed in Picardy, France 1915.

Brian O'Cathain Kane My grandmother, Elizabeth Kane nee Kelly, was the Linen Mistress at the Shelburne Hotel in Dublin c1910-1917. Her husband, Thomas Kane, was killed in action in 1916. They had one child, my father Albert, born 1905. After my grandfather's death she met an American soldier (we think his name was McGrath)at the hotel and married him c1917. All we know about this American is that his family owned steel mills in Deluth, Minn.They went to America at that time,we think to Williamsburg, VA leaving my father behind with his grandmother. Some years later we heard that they had returned on a visit to Dublin with their daughter aged about seven years. As far as we know she didn't try to find my father, who by this time was married with five children. We know that her sister, a Mrs.Moylan, and her son Barney, followed her to America soon afterwards. To the day he died (aged 88)my father waited for each knock at the door in the hope that it was her returning to collect him. As a PS, I e-mailed McGrath Steel in Deluth but never received a reply.
