I am searching for information regarding Bartholomew Foley (b. 1818 or so) and Hanora/Hannah Connors or O'Connor (b. 1819 or so).  Batholomew's mother's name was Mary.  Hanora's parents were James Connors and Mary Barry.  Bartholomew and Hanora were married in a Catholic ceremony in Rathcormac on 5 Febrary 1837.

Bartholomew and Hanora had 5 children: Margaret Foley (b. 1838), Bridget Foley (b. 1840), John Foley (b. 1844), Catherine Foley (b. 1846), Mary Foley (b. 1849), and Hanora Foley (b. 1851).

Bartholomew and Hanora emigrated to the U.S. between 1851 and 1855.  We have information that says Bartholomew was a teacher in Ireland and possibly fled to the U.S. due to social persecution.  Any suggestions on how to find out if there is any truth to this story?

All suggestions welcome.  Thank you.
