  • Hi Rita
    There are lots of John Deegan birth/baptism records from Laois around 1840 for John Deegan but none is from Stradbally.
    There are 2 from Stradbally for Catherine Whalen:
    Name: Catherine Whelan Date of Birth: 01-Aug-1845
    Date of Baptism:
    Address: Parish/District: Stradbally
    Gender: County Co. Laois
    Denomination:
    Father: Michael Whelan Mother: Betty Kavanagh

    Name: Catherine Whelan Date of Birth: 01-Oct-1847
    Date of Baptism:
    Address: Parish/District: Stradbally
    Gender: County Co. Laois
    Denomination:
    Father: James Whelan Mother: Biddy

    I couldn't find a marriage record for them; it may have had John's parents' names.

  • Thank you for your reply to my post. The information I have I had gotten from my grandmother's death certificate so the spelling of the last name was written by whomever wrote it. That is where I the Stradbally from for John Deegan and Catherine. Also info from 1881 UK census for Bury, England and US 1900 Census. In the US census they had Catherine's date of birth as Mar 1844. Thank you again for your help.
