My new (and incomplete) Redemptorist
Descendants of Michael Nugent (d. 1924) and
Margaret Russell (d. 1933)
The grandchildren of Daniel and Margaret Nugent are my father's
(Michael Slator's) first cousins, and are my first cousins, once removed. Their children are
my second cousins.
Personal note: Developing and maintaining this Web
site has been a labor of love. It has taken many hours of work over the
last several years and will continue to do so in the future, but the
rewards are great. I've learned so much about my heritage, and I've had
the good furtune to make contact with many, many relatives in Ireland,
Australia, Scotland and here in the U.S. that I never knew I had. Among
those I've heard from are:
- Billy Larby, Alice Roche, Aelish Tuite, Ena (Corbett) Griffin and
Danny and Bridey Nugent, from Ireland
- Gary Hirons and Kevin Hirons-Brown, from Scotland
- Sheila (Tuohy) Fitzgerald, Jill (Nugent) Rogers, and Jim Nugent,
- Jimmy Walsh, from New York City
- John Griffin, from St. Louis, Missouri
I've even been in contact with several Canadian World War II veterans
who served with my uncle, Danny Slator. Danny who enlisted in the Canadian
army at age 16 under my dad's name, and was killed in August 1944. A
couple of the men I've heard from knew Danny personally, or knew about
But I've been frustrated by my inability to learn much, if
anything, about my grandfather's brother and his parents, Daniel Slator
and Helen (nee Lewis) Slator. And I know nothing at all about their
lineage. I even hired a couple of genalogical researchers in
Ireland awhile back to conduct reasearch on my grandfather, but they
turned up little information other than about the medals he earned serving
in World War I. I don't even have a Jack Slator's birth certificate.
Elsewhere on this site I've included essentially everthing I know about
Jack Slator's family. The discouraging part of this whole process is that
I'm out of ideas about how to get at this information. I'd be extremely
grateful if anyone reading had information to share, or advice about how
to get it myself.
- Michael Nugent's father (name unknown) had a brother named
Daniel, who lived for a time in The Railway Hotel, Cardiff,
- Michael Nugent had a brother Patrick (Pakie) who
married Pidge Russell (no relation to Margaret Russell).
Michael and Pidge had two or three children. (Source:
Billy Larby, via Aelish (Larby) Tuite.)
- I recently learned that I have distant relations in Australia. I've
been in contact with Jill Rogers (nee Nugent) and her brother,
Jimmy Nugent, of New South Wales, Australia. They are
great-grandchildren of James Daniel Nugent Sr., who was a brother
to my great-grandfather, Michael Nugent. James Nugent had a son,
James Jr., who had a son named Patrick Michael Nugent.
Patrick married Queenie Madlene Barter, who had Jill and Jimmy
and the rest of their family. Jill is married to Jim Rogers.
Jimmy Nugent, recently sent me a vast amount of information about
the Nugents, which I hope to add to this page soon. I believe Jill and
Jimmy are my third cousins, since our common ancestor is a
great-great-grandparent. For information on the Australian
Nugents, click here.
- I recently learned the following information about Jack Slator
and his family:
- Jack was apparently baptized Catholic, not Protestant, as
- Jack's father, Daniel, married Helen Lewis
- Daniel Slator and Helen (or Ellen) Lewis were natives of Ireland
- Helen (or Ellen) Lewis died in either 1911 or 1913, at age 62,
from kidney problems
- Daniel Slator died in 1914 at the age of 67, of "old age"
- Jack's only sibling was named James, who died in World War
- When Jack was a child -- possibly after he turned age 13 (in 1905)
-- his family moved to England, probably to Liverpool.
Jack began an apprenticeship as a shoemaker.
- Ernest George Larby, husband of Anastasia Nugent (my
great-aunt) served in the U.K. army during World War I, according to
my Aunt Helen.
- Katie Nugent and F.J. Hirons had a daughter named
Margaret, in addition to a son named Arthur. Below is a
photo of Katie and Arthur.
- I've had contact with Gary Hirons, who lives in the England and
may be a grandchild of Arthur Hirons. I'm going to try and get more
information on this branch of the family tree.
- I have recently been contacted by Kevin Hirons-Brown,
of Glasgow, Scotland, UK, who is one of Arthur Hirons's children.
Kevin has kindly provided some of the information below about the
- I've also been in contact with Ena Griffin from Tipperary,
Ireland, who is a daughter of Margaret "Maggie" Nugent. (See #7
- Margaret Russell had two siblings, Ann, who never
married, and James, who was a member of the Fenian Brotherhood.
James was killed in 1867 at age 20 in a Fenian uprising in Ballyhurst,
which is one mile from Tipperary. He is buried in Lattin churchyard,
which is five or six miles from Tipperary. There is a monument to him
there. (HISTORICAL NOTE: On March 5, 1867, an abortive Fenian
uprising against English rule took place in Ireland. The unsuccessful
rebellion by the Irish Republican Brotherhood, known as the Fenians,
gave Australia its final generation of convicts. The 1999 book "The
Great Shame and the Triumph of the Irish in the English-Speaking World"
by Thomas Keneally tells the story of the Irish shipped to Australia.

1F.J. Hirons is listed on the "Debt of Honor Register," which
is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. The CWGC was
"established by Royal Charter in 1917. Its duties are to mark and
maintain the graves of the members of the forces of the Commonwealth who
were killed in the two World Wars, to build memorials to those who have
no known grave and to keep records and registers, including, after the
Second World War, a record of the Civilian War Dead."
According to the CWGC, FJ Hirons (#3049) was a rifleman with the 3rd
Battalion, Rifle Brigade. He was killed on Monday, August 16, 1915, and
is buried in the LIJSSENTHOEK MILITARY CEMETERY, Poperinge,
West-Vlaanderen, Belgium. He was survived by Catherine Mary Hirons, of
10, Cashel Rd., Tipperary.
The name of my uncle, "Michael Joseph" Danny Slator, who died during
World War II, can also be found on the CWGC's Debt of Honor Register.
Thank you to Danny Nugent of Tipperary, Billy Larby of Dublin (and
Billy's daughter, Aelish Tuite), Ena Griffin of Tipperary, and Jimmy
Nugent of New South Wales, Australia, for providing much of the above
