I'm in search of My great grandparents Dennis DOWLING and Teresa MURPHY. They were married in the RC Chapel of Dunlavin, in 1876. Dennis was a blacksmith with a business in Moone (Co Kildare) and the family lived there. However, it appears that Teresa came "home" (Hollywood) to have her babies: James Joseph in 1878, Mary Anne in 1883 and Richard (my grandfather) in 1885 (although his birth certificate the name is listed as Dooling). Teresa died in 1891 in Baltinglass and was attended by her niece Mary Quinn of Lemontown, Co Wicklow.

I have been unable to locate her grave and am wondering if maybe she was buried with her birth family in Co Wicklow rather than in Co Kildare. If someone could provide a list of the cemeteries near Hollywood, I'd sure appreciate it. I am attaching her death certificate and their marriage certificate. All I know of her family is her father's information on the marriage cert - James, a blacksmith. Also, if someone familiar with the area could decipher the town names on the marriage certificate for me, I would so appreciate that.
