Brother And Sister

I am trying to find the parents and birth locations of my great grandmother and her brother. What I have is Bridget Callahan born 1848 Newport Tipperary and Edmond Callahan born 15 Nov. Ireland. They are brother and sister but I can find no records that show it. Edmond's death certificate lists his father as Terrance O Callahan. Bridgett naturalized USA 1864. Edmond naturalized USA1881.

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The Newport RC records are included on the subscription site Roots Ireland. I located an Edward Callaghan baptized November 15 1855 (you left out the year) and a Bridget Callaghan baptized in 1838 not 1848 (uncless there was a transcription error) There were six other siblings with the same parents.

    Do you think this is your family?

  • Thank you very much. Edmond was born in 1858 from all the records I have which would be close, but 1838 is too early for Bridget. Darn.
