My name is Geraldine Buckley Smith originally from Rahan and I have searched for Judith Cantwell with these parents but cannot find her.
I found a Judith Cantwell whose parents were James Cantwell and Joanna Kelly from Rahan
Cantwell is a very common name in the Parish of Rahan
You have records for their childrens births all in Ferbane parish (registration district would be Birr)
Would you mind attaching some of their birth records just so I can have a look at them to see if I can see any connection with Rahan.
Also have you done your DNA and if so had any luck with connections

Hello Geraldine- I’ve uploaded screenshots of what I found. I have done a DNA test but only connected with known relatives in the US. I am most interested in finding marriage record between Patrick Cantwell and Mary Grogan. And then the birth record for John H. Cantwell born around 1844. Thank you for your assistance. Kathryn

I have searched the Ferbane (Gallen & Reynagh) marriage records starting at 1938 and I cannot see any marriage for Patrick and Mary. I am now going to search through Rahan
