STACK Family History

This is a famous Anglo-Irish name, although the origin is Norse-Viking, pre 7th Century from "Stakkr". The name is job descriptive for a builder of Stacks, specifically hay stacks, and therefore a form of agricultural contractor. This peaceful occupation seems rather at odds with the "Stacks", later reputation in that the Irish holders of the name, who originally formed part of the English 14th Century Colonist policy, turned against England and were ferocious opponents in the Elizabethan Wars. The name is an early surname, the recordings include Simon Stakke of Hampshire in 1244, whilst in Ireland, John Stack was Bishop of Ardfert in 1588, whilst General Edward Stack lead the Irish Brigade (The Wild Geese) in the Napoleonic Wars (1792 - 1815)...

    Hello, I am Robert Walsh Fister from the states. My great grandmother is Mary Stack born 1832 in Kilbaha Kerry.Her father is Richard some articles have him listed as James, He married Ellen Shanahan and had the one child named Mary that is my Great Grandmother. Richard or James died sometime later and Ellen remarried a Mr George Gregory. One item I am trying to find is the death and burial of James / Richard Stack. Recently I found a James Stack in killehenny burial grounds that could be my James Stack died close to 1836. Any info on this James Stack would be fantastic. Thank you.
