Mary Stack from Kilbaha, Kerry

My Great Grandmother Mary Stack was born 8 January 1832 in Kilbaha to Richard Stack and Ellen Shanahan. She came to the USA thru New Orleans La on February 27 1852 with her Half brother Richard Gregory. Mary's father Richard Stack must have passed away as Ellen Married a Mr George Gregory and they had a son named Richard gregory born abt 1847 in kerry. Mary Stack married Patrick Walsh in Paris Ky about 1855 later moving to Carlisle, Nicholas co Ky. Supposably having 13 children, I have only accounted for 8. One of her sons Robert Patrick better known as R P Walsh and his brother John went to Mt Sterling Ky in the early 1880's  and went into the clothing bussines with several firms before buying one of them out to start their own company which they named Walsh brothers. After about 20 or so years R.P. moved to Paris Ky in 1913 to start his own clothing bussines after having a falling out with his brother John Walsh. R.P. Walsh had a very good life going into the clothing bussines and having two clothing stores in two different towns, he removed himself from the Mt Sterling store and had a very succsesfull bussines in his store in Paris and also sucsesfull in real estate as well. R.P. Walsh's father was Patrick Walsh born in  Kerry about 1830 to John Walsh and Julia Enright. John was the son of Patrick Walsh and Catherine Kennelly.

My search is for items about the Stack family from kilbaha and surrounding areas of Kerry. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    In case you were not aware, the free site www.irishgenealogy.ie has Co. Kerry church records up to 1880. I did find two records. Richard Gregory was actually born in 1844. See below. I also found the 1806 record for John Walsh. I did not find the record for Patrick Walsh but there are baptismal reocrds for five of his siblings.
