Thank You so much, Miriam. I will will use your suggestions & pray that I find my ancestors. They did travel around Cork, from the Conna area to Carrigabrick. Janet

I don't know if there's a connection, but I have earlier relatives in Tallow who are also Kirby.
John b. unknown M. w. Ellen Brien, b. 1790
Son John Kirby b.1805 m Ellen Brien (not a mistake)
Children : Mary b. 1834, James b. 1836, John b. 1838, Maurice b. 1842, William b. unsure.
The parents and family emigrated to the US, and ended up in Richmond/ Lenox/West Stockbridge/Pittsfield MA (neighboring towns).
I'm descended from Maurice, and have DNA matches with people descended from Mary, James and John. If you've done DNA, I can see if we match on ancestry or on gedmatch.
However there were many Kirbys in Tallow. I have a spreadsheet of all the Kirbys in Tallow in the early 1800s, with about 40 baptisms and 5 marriages. I went up to 1827. I'd be glad to share that in case it helps. As is common, there are many families with similar names - a lot of James John and Williams for example. When you look at the info (attached), I have taken the same info and sorted it a variety of ways. By date, by child name, by location. I was trying to understand how this related to my people. So it's a bit repetitive. Also, names are translated from Latin.
