    Just to confirm that the parents of James Farrell were Thomas Farrell and Marie Carthy? I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and the free site www.irishgenealogy.ie and did not find a baptismal record for James Farrell. I also did not find a record for Elizabeth Bray with father Edward.

    I did locate the civil marriage record for James and Elizabeth which shows their fathers names and the birth record for Mary Farrell.

    One of our volunteers, Shane Wilson, pointed out to me some additional info for your Bray family. The church marriage record shows that the mother of Elizabeth was Marie Redmond and the marriage occurred in the Church of the Sacred Heart in Donnybrook. The record also shows that the parents of James Farrell were from Clontarf. Also, one of the witnesses to the marriage was Bridget Bray sister to Elizabeth.

    Shane pointed out that if you scroll down five marriages from the James Farrell/Elizabeth Bray marriage you will find her sister Bridget's marriage record to Michael Byrne.

    www.irishgenealogy.ie Church Tab has baptismal records for Edward Bray in 1858 (no exact date given) parents Edward Bray and Mary Redmond at St. Mary's Haddington Road Dublin. Also Ellen Bray in 1860 (no exact date given) and Bridget Bray in 1863 (no exact date given) same parents in St. Mary's. Is it possible that Ellen was Elizabeth?
