I hope you can help me.

I am looking for information on Arthur Kennedy born abt. 1794, his wife Catherine McDarby born abt. 1797 and their daughter Sarah Kennedy b. 29 Jun 1822.  I believe that she married John Revels on 22 Nov 1821 in Killesin, County Laois.

John Revels was born Nov 1822 in Ireland.  I am hoping that he was also from Killesin, County Laois.

 

I really appreciate any insight you can  give me about these people.

    I looked on Roots Ireland. The RC parish for Killeshin is Graigue and their records start in 1819 but they are not on Roots. I did find the baptismal records for Sarah and her sister Anne in the Doonane RC parish which is just to the west of Graigue.

    I was unable to find the Arthur Kennedy/Catherine McDarby marriage or the Sarah Kennedy/John Revels marriage. Possibly they occurred in Graigue.

    On July 8th, the National Library of Ireland plans to place all RC parish registers online. I would search for
    the missing records in the Graigue register.

    You will note that the location on the baptismal records is Tolerton which I believe is Towlerton townland in Killabban civil parish which is just to the west of Killeshin. Possibly they moved from this location to Killeshin parish at a later date??

  • Roger,

    Thank you so much for responding so quickly and researching this family!  I will take your suggestion and search the National Library of Ireland in July!

    It is hard to wait but July will be here before I know it!
