James Corr married Elizabeth Keogh. 

Their son, Michael Corr, b. abt 1836 in Callan married Ellen Dowley, [daughter of John Dowley and Johanna McNamarra] b. 1837.   Johanna McNamarra was the daughter of John McNamara and Mary Riley.

 John F. Corr b. 12 Dec 1862 in Callan was the son of Michael Corr and Ellen Dowlwy. John migrated  to US circa October 1882.

Would like to find ancestors of James Corr of Callan.

    The church records for Callan RC parish start in 1821   https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0973 The subscription site Roots Ireland has baptismal records for seven children of James Corr and Elizabeth Keogh:  Richard 1821 Catherine 1822 Margaret 1823 Elizabeth 1826 Anne 1831 Mary 1833 Harriet 1835   A record for Michael did not come up

    There are five different James Corr records in the Tithe listings of 1827 for Callan parish.   http://titheapplotmentbooks.nationalarchives.ie/search/tab/results.jsp?s...

    There could be some duplicate records but your James Corr should be one of them.

    Because of the church records starting in 1821, I don't believe you will be able find records for the parents of James.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
