Thank you, Miriam, for your reply. I appreciate your keen eye in deciphering the hard to read script. I think you are correct that the name is Miles. That you found him again on the landholding record confirms it in my mind. From your reply, I am pretty much ruling out this family as not being mine. Miles is not a family name. Of course Mary is in every Irish family, I think. The reason I am ruling it out is there is another John Grady baptised on 6 May 1832. The Parish is Kilfarboy and the Diocese is Killaloe.This John was the son of a Daniel Grady and Helen Lemoon (is this an Irish surname? It does not sound like it to me, but perhaps there were lots of Lemoons in Clare). Am I correct that this is around Milltownmalby? My great grandfather, John Grady, named his first child Daniel Joseph (born in the US in 1855). That would follow Irish naming traditions. Also, I had an aunt named Helen Julia Grady (3rd daughter). If you have any additional information on this Daniel Grady family, I would be most interested. I have never come across any other John Gradys born in 1832 in Clare, but I realize records are not complete. Again thank you for your reply and for the valuable work you do!!
