Mary Ann Tighe was born circa 1851 and later married Pat Rorke or Rourke whose parents were Michael Rourke and Bridget McCue. Mary Ann and Patrickmarried circa 1859 had several children Elleanor 1867 in Ballyfarnon, Michael 1873,  Mary Ann died and Pat Rourke married Mary Ann Milmoe and went on to have Francis 1879, Catherine 1883, Elizabeth 1885 and Thomas 1885. I am searching for information on Mary Ann Tighe, where she was from, who her relations were and who her parents and siblings were.

    Likely Mary Ann was born much earlier than 1851 if she was married in 1859. On the subscription site Roots Ireland I found nine baptismal records for children of Patrick Rourke/Rorke and Mary Ann Tighe. The family lived in Straduff townland in Kilmactranny civil parish.

    The information in your note differs from the baptismal records unless I have the wrong family because Mary Ann was shown as the mother of all the children. NOTE I did not find a baptismal records for Thomas.

    Bridget Rorke baptized February 13 1862 in Riverstown father Patrick mother Maria Tighe sponsors Laurence Tighe and Ellenora Tighe

    Maria O'Rorke baptized August 25 1864 in Geevagh father Patrick mother Maria A. Tighe sponsors Patrick Duignan Bridget Duignan

    Ellenora O'Rourke baptized January 25 1867 in Geevagh father Patrick mother Maria Tighe sponsors Francis O'Rourke Ellenora Egan

    Anne O'Rorke baptized April 4 1869 in Geevagh father Patrick mother Maria Tighe sponsors Patrick Dyer Ellenora Egan

    John Rorke baptized May 6 1871 born May 4 in Geevagh father Patrick mother Maria Anna Tighe sponsors James Tighe Anna Deignan

    Michael Rourke baptized April 10 1873 born April 8 in Geevagh father Patrick mother Maria Anna Tighe sponsors Patrick Flynn Maria Rourke

    James Rorke baptized August 20 1875 born August 17 in Geevagh father Patrick mother Maria Tighe sponsors James Simon Maria McKeown

    Francis Rorke baptized March 14 1878 born March 12 in Geevagh father Patrick mother Maria Tigue sponsors Patrick Dyer Catherine Buller

    Catherine Rorke baptized January 9 1883 born January 4 in Geevagh father Patrick mother Maria Tigh sponsors James Travers Elizabeth Dugnan

    Elizabeth Rorke baptized November 5 1885 born November 4 in Geevagh father Patrick mother Mary Tighe sponsors John Rorke Mary Tighe

    I also found a March 13 1843 baptismal record in Riverstown for a Patrick O'Roark with father Michael Rourke mother Bridget McCue. Is this record too late for someone married around 1859.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Is this the Patrick Rorke Mary Milmoe marriage in 1875? I think this is a different couple.
