I have found information that my great grandfather Henry Reilly was married to Margaret Carty on July 10, 1843 in Rathfarnham.  They had 2 of their children in Ireland (Michael and William)  From there somehow they emigrated to USA and ending up in Connecticut where they continued their family which included my great grandfather James Henry.  So Henry had a sister Mary and Margaret's parents were Michael and Elizabeth.  Any information or assistance will be appreciated.

  • A transcript of the marriage for Henry and Margaret is on the IrishGenealogy website, confirming the date you have, in addition the marriage record noted the witnesses as a William Carty and Mary Reilly - both possibly related ?  An image of the parish marriage register is available on the Nation Library of Ireland website - see this page in the Rathfarnham Marriage records.  Unfortunately there's no residence of other clues recorded.

    I see two possible children to the couple, both baptised in Rathfarnham parish - Thomas in 1844 and William in 1847 both recorded without a mother's maiden surname... I can see that I've researched this family before, did you have a previous topic ?
