Hello

Please see attached pic.

I believe the highlighted entry shows one John Maher born 1846 to Margaret Feehan and John Maher.

Margaret Feehan was the daughter of a John Feehan and Margaret Coughlin and had a number of siblings including one Catherine Feehan who is my GGGrandmother. Other sibling names include Johanna and Richard and there may have been others.

So my questions are:

1. This item on Ancestry says Parish register  - Killaloe Roscrea. 

I am not sure I know exactly where that would have been as it seems these names show up in multiple counties.

2. If any additional if avail please point me if possible.

 

Thanks

 

Ed

  • Hi,  on the Parish Book that you highlighted, where it says the names on the first line, the end squiggle, I read it as Grove Street.
