    There is not enough information in your message for us to assist you. We don't have many RC church records back to 1780 and even if we found a Catherine Egan baptismal record, we could not confirm that it was your Catherine. Egan was a very common surname in Ireland in the mid-19th century. There were over 1500 Egan households in Ireland at that time.

    Can I suggest that you test your DNA? You will get a number of matches and from contacting close matches, you may be able to get more info on your Egan family in Ireland.
