We do not have a parish liaison for the Ballyhaunis area. A lot of information can be found online either on free sites or subscription sites. I located a transcription of the 1870 civil marriage record for Peter and Margaret. The record shows where Peter and Margaret lived and the names of their fathers. It appears they had 13 children Peter 1871 James 1872 Mary 1874 Ellen 1876 Andrew 1878 Cecelia 1881 Michael 1882 Catherine 1884 John 1886 Honoria 1889 Bridget 1891 Margaret 1893 Anne 1896 Two of the children were deceased by 1911. Also below are the 1901 and 1911 census reocrds for the family. I also located the 1923 civil death record for Peter. You will have to sign-in to see the record. I looked for a Margaret death record with no success. Do you know her year of death. I can also get the civil birth records of the children if you are interested. Have a great trip!
Also, we have an XO Chronicles site where you can add the stories of ancestors who emigrated
Lastly, I will look for possible phone numbers for any Browne's in the area.
