I have an ancester Named Michael Rourke and his wife Mary Unknown who are listed as living at Barrackhill Newport Mayo in the Griffin.  One of his sons was named William Rourke who lived in Crossmolina.  Do you have any records of Rourke/O'Rourke with marriage or baptism or death records in Crossmolina.  Michael Rourke was born 1800, Willaim was born 1830 Approx.  Other children of Michael were John, Patrick,Edward.  Would like to know others named such as sponsors or parents if any.
Thanks

Hi, Diane

What a wonderful offer, I nearly jumped with joy when I saw it. I have an ancestor who hails from Crossmollina her name is Barbara Langhan (langan) born circa 1822 to John a stonemason and his wife Nancy - I have no other information for John and Nancy.  Barbara married in England in 1853, she was at this point a widow with the surname Sweeney. Given that at this marriage J & N are listed as still in Ireland (although if they are indeed still alive at this point is another question) we are assuming (I know!!!) that she came to England with her first husband Mr Sweeney and that they married in Crossmollina - I can find no record of her life here before her second marriage but there is no evidence of any children from it on subsequent documents. I can find no record of her first husbands given name.

Thank you in anticipation.

Diane, Hi

I just reread your original post and noticed that you also have the name Sweeney - spooky or what seeing as we have the same given name! However, I am no blood relation (as far as I know) to the Sweeneys.  Other Irish branches are Durcan/Durkin from Sligo and Mulhearn/Brogan with at least one birth given as Queenstown, which was a bit of a puzzle!

Thanks so much for your very generous offer!  It is through the kindness of people like you that I have found that my Corcorans came from Crossmolina Parish, Co. Mayo.  Unfortunately, they started to immigrate to the Province of Quebec in Canada around 1817, and from there successive generations migrated to other parts of Canada and the US.  Your records don't cover that period, but I will post what I do know in the hope that somebody from the same line might see it.  I expect that some family members stayed behind in Ireland.  In particular, there was a son named Matt who studied at Apothecary Hall and worked at a pharmacy in Castlebar in the early 1800s.

Several of my Corcorans worked for the Hudson Bay Company in Canada starting in 1817.

I have an unknown Corcoran male born around 1725.  He had two sons, Edward and John.  I believe that Edward immigrated to the US.  John was born around 1755 and married Bridget Edwards.  Their known children born in Ireland are:

Bridget, who married Walter Burke
Richard (b. 1775), who married Margaret Nash
James (b. 1778), who married Bridget (b. 1791).  These are my GGGG Grandparents.
Patrick (b. 1787), who married Genvieve Gagnon in Canada
Elizabeth (b. 1788), who married Michael Rowan (b. 1778) - several children born in Ireland
John (b. 1791)
Thomas (b. 1794), who married Charlotte Sophia Sutherland (b. 1799) in Canada
Edward (b. 1799), who married Julia Cassidy (b. 1807) in Canada

James and Bridget had the following children born in Ireland:

Mary (b. 1808)
John (b. 1811)
Luke (b. 1812)
Elizabeth (b. 1817)
Bridget (b. 1825)

Successive children of James and Bridget were born in Canada - Annie, Marie and James.

Can anybody tell me what villages comprised Crossmolina Parish in the late 1700s?

I would love to hear from anybody connected to this family and would be happy to share any information that I have.

Nicole

Hi Osca, I am very sorry its taken so very long to get back to you- computer problems, vacations, new computer adjustments...
So, I have looked in my Catholic records and found NONE.
But I do have Church of Ireland records for Crossmolina that show several Erwin Ekin ect, but none with any of the given names you gave me. The film I got this from is from LDS # 897365- I only copied the Crossmolina records but most likely there are many other parishes on the reel.
Sorry I couldnt help!
