Information on Birth and Death

I am looking for information on John McLaughlin.  He was born in Ireland in 1807.  His wife's name was Catherine Rein (Rowan) and she was born in Ireland in 1823.  Their son, Hugh McLaughlin,  was born in Ballacastle County Mayo, Ireland on December 22, 1844.  How would I find out where John was born and where he is buried?  He died in Stabane, Ireland.  Also, how would I find out where Catherine was born and where she is buried?  My husband and I are coming to Ireland this summer and would like to visit the land where they once lived.  We also would like to see their graves, if that would be possible.

  • Hi Dorene
    I'm afraid there are 9 John McLaughlin (+ surname variants) 1807 birth / baptism records on www.rootsireland.ie/(subscription site)
    Each is from a different county and none from Mayo.

    There are 5 Catherine Rowans but none is 1823:

    There are 2 counties Wexford & Down which have a record for both John & Cath; Wexford is the only 1 with a parish in common(Kilanerin):

    This one is close for Hugh but it's not Mayo - I couldn't find a Mayo record.

    I'm afraid I couldn't find John or Catherine's death records.

    This might be John's death record on findmypastireland.ie (you need to purchase a bit of credit to view the full record).
    Last name First name Born Died Event Record set Location
    McLaughlin John 1807 1872 Irish Deaths 1864 - 1958 Strabane, Donegal, Ireland
    Couldn't see Cath there.

    geni.nidirect.gov.uk has this for Catherine:

    D/1903/221/1027/18/485 Catherine McLaughlin 21st May 1903 80 Female Strabane(pre-1973 Q4)
    I tried to copy the record but can't; it's there for a few credits.
