I'm looking for genealogy information on the Flusk family. I've attached an image of what I've been able to pull together from Ancestry. Mary E Flusk would be my 2nd great grandmother (husband Thomas Sheridan). Her father is William Flusk, mother Elizabeth Carney. I may have William's birth date incorrect. (b. 1800 d. 1891 in Gorey, Wexford)

I'm curious if Mary E Flusk (b. 1843 Gorey, d. 1921 NJ, USA) had more siblings than I show in my tree, and also what William's siblings names are. I can't access Ancestry World, so I'm unable to search on any Irish databases. Thank you!

    The subscription site Roots Ireland has a September 5 1843 baptismal reocrd for a Margaret Flusk with parents William Flusk and Eliza Kearney. The RC parish was Kilanerin. Your chart shows Mary E. Flusk born 1843. Unfortunately, the parish register for Kilanerin/Killanerin parish on the NLI site starts in 1852 so I can't determine if there was a transcription error. Do you think Mary E. and Margaret are the same person? There were no other siblings listed in Roots Ireland.

    Roots Ireland had a July 3 1842 marriage reocrd for William Flusk and Elizabeth Kearney in the same parish. One of the witnesses was a Richard Kearney, the other witness was Sarah Kehoe.

    I did not find a William Flusk baptismal record and the only Eliza Carney was March 20 1822 at the Enniscorthy RC parish. This Eliza was illegitimate according to the transcription. Mother was Catherine Carney. No other records close to 1820.

    There was no William Flusk in the 1853 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing for Co. Wexford.

    I located the record for Elizabeth on the subscription site FindMyPast. She was baptized on March 13 1859 at the Gorey RC church parents William Flusk and Elizabeth Carney. Still no record for Bernard.
