Research re: family of Martin Flynn

I’m looking for any information concerning the family of Martin Flynn, born to Martin and Catherine (Crotty) Flynn in County Waterford on August 21, 1840.  He emigrated to the U.S. @age 11 with family members, including brothers John and Thomas, eventually settling in Iowa.  Their eldest brother, Dennis remained behind.

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and located seven baptismal records for children of Martin Flynn and Catherine Crotty: Denis 1826 Mary 1828 John 1831 Biddy 1833 Patrick 1835 Thomas 1838 Catherine 1845. I did not find a record for Martin.The oldest four were baptized in Newcastle parish and the younger three in Clonea. Here is a link to the parish register for Clonea  Maybe you can locate Martin's record.

    From the 1850 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing, it appears the family lived in Clonea townland in Mother civil parish.

    The parents were married in St. Mary's parish in Waterford city.
