Hello Audrey,

The 1858-60 extracts of Griffith's Valuations for Co. Monaghan which are on John Hayes failteromhat.com website show that there were Refferty families in the following parishes
in the county ... Clones, Clontibret, Donagh, Donaghmoyne, Errigal Trough, Inishkeen, Magheracloone, Magheross, Monaghan, Muckno and Tedavnet.

You'll have to rely on Church records as civil registration in Ireland was not introduced until 1864. Non Catholic marriages were registered from 1845 onwards. When registration for BDMS started in 1864 some people didn't bother with the registration for a few years after that date. Keep your fingers crossed that church records still exist.
