I am trying to get more information on my 5th Great-Grandfather, Patrick Donohoo. He was born appox 1763, I believe in Galway. He was married to Sarah Faherty. They had two sons born in Ireland (I assume also in Galway): Patrick Jr (b~1785), and Michael (b~1792). The family sailed from Ireland to the US (Baltimore) sometime between 1796 and 1813.

I would greatly appreciate any help I can get with information on Patrick Donohoo and Sarah Faherty.

Thank you,

Christina Flores

    I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland for all of Ireland and did not find any Donohoe/Donohoo baptismal records with father Patrick and mother with surname of Faherty.

    Unfortunately it is very difficult to find any Co. Galway RC parishes with records back to the late 1700s. The only parish which has records is Tuam. Likely the children of Patrick and Sarah were baptized in a parish which no longer has records back to the late 1700s.

    Have you considered DNA testing?
