I would love to find out the names of the other children of Patrick and Bridget. Bridget’s proper name. place of burial. If anyone could help I would be really grateful. Thanks

    Unfortunately, Aghabog RC parish has very few records in your period of interest. According to the subscription site Roots Ireland, Aghabog baptismal records are available for 1840-1843 and marriages are available for 1840-1842. The Roots Ireland index does not indicate which month in 1843 ( or 1842 for marriages) the records end. In any event my search on Roots Ireland for a Patrick McPhillips marriage to a Bridget failed to locate a record and there were no McPhillips baptismal records where the father was Patrick and the mother Bridget.

    Except for a few baptismal records in 1848, records are not available until 1871  https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0283  

    I looked at civil marriage records and have identified three daughters of Patrick and Bridget McPhillips who married.

    First, it appears Rose was married twice, first to a Peter McEntee and then second to Owen McPhillips. I then found Alice's marriage to Michael Connolly in 1899 and Catherine's marriage to James Fitzpatrick in 1892.

    Rose first marriage  https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_ret...

    Rose second marriage https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_ret...

    Alice    https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_ret...

     Catherine third record  https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_ret...

    Let me know what questions you have.

  • Thank you so much for that information. I have the information on those children, and am pleased that I was correct in thinking they were part of the family but hoped there might have been some more on the other children. Would there be burial records somewhere? I don't suppose there will be headstones anywhere, though as Francis was in the RIC, I though there might have been one for him at least. Where would I look. I have found nothing to date.  Much appreciated for the quick response.

  • Arusha:

    I located the death records for Anne and Francis in case you did not have them. See links below. I would contact St. Mary's church and see if they can assist with burial info.  https://clogherdiocese.ie/parishes/parish-details/?parishID=26
