Looking for information on Andrew Phelan (1834 Ireland-1899 America) married to Anne Delaney (1835 Ireland-1897 America).  They were married in Mountrath, Laois in 1860 and lived there with their 9 children - Mary, Margaret, Anna, Katherine, Agnes, Alice, Micheal, Helena and Lillian.  Andrew worked in a bakery and they lived on a farm called Coolrain.  All came to America in the 1880s, except Helena, who died in Ireland as a child.  I believe Andrew's father was Matthew Phelan.  I believe that Anne Delaney's parents were Michael Delaney and Mary Cudahy.  Anne's siblings were Michael, Margaret, Hannagh, Bridget, Ellen and John Delaney.  All but Hannagh, Ellen and John came to America.  John (b: 1853) was believed to be a Constable in or near Dublin.  I do not have any Butler information in my tree.  I'd like to hear from anyone with Phelans and/or Delaneys that might match this info.  Thank you.

The two most common surnames in Laois are Delaney and Phelan I also have both as grandparents ::) Be extra careful to follow the correct line there are many Delaneys and Phelans, Phelan is often recorded as Whelan just to add a little more complexity.

I suspect the Coolrain reference is to the village rather than a farm name.
