Hi my great great Grandparents weree William O'Brien  and Mary Rooney. Looks like they were married in 1866 in Dunslaughin and then took the big ship in 1855   to settle in Wisconsin USA.  Does anyone know if I can confirm the marriage and their hometowns?   O'Brien marrying a Rooney probably happened daily!   I am trying to find their home towns....


Thank you

    This is the link to the marriage record for Mary and William in 1866…. This contains alot of relevant information and is freely available at Attached is a possible birth record for Mary from the paysite The addresses are given on the marriage record above and the marriage probably took place in the home parish of the bride. There was no other suitable birth in Dunshaughlin.
