Hello looking for  descendants of my 3rd great grandfather Michael Stapleton born about 1787 in Odagh parish

I understand he married Mary Catherine Butler in 1817 in Urlingford

Thay had several children including Anne ( Stasia) 1820, Mary 1822, Eleanor 1825, Thomas 1831, Judith 1833, Elizabeth 1835 and Nacy 1835. (There may have been others?) I believe they were baptised in Tullaroan? and were living in Brittas?

Stasia married Thomas Kealey (Kealy) in Urlingford in 1844


Any assistance much appreciated

    The subscription site Roots Ireland has an 1817 marriage of a Michael Butler to a Catherine Butler in the Freshford RC parish not Urlingford.

    I also located the baptismal records you mentioned but they also occurred in Freshford not Tullaroan.

    The 1849 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing shows a Michael Stapleton in Brittas townland in Tullaroan civil parish.

    I did not see a death record for him. Civil registartion of deaths started in 1864.

    See third record Catherine Stapleton of Brittas died in 1879. See third record. She was listed as a pauper. The informant was an Ellen Ford of Brittas. No relationship listed. Was she the Eleanor born 1825?
