Have you found the family in any census records? (this will give an indication of age).
Unfortunately, civil registration of births started in 1864 so you need to see if any baptismal records might exist for them. Marriage certificate should list fathers' names and occupations but church records don't always show mother's name.

patrick 1/3/1867                born derrylin
mary ann 2/3/1869               "
james 1871                               "
john 1873                             "
catherine 1875
francis joseph 1878 born cornahoule died dublin 1926

found those records on ancestry

i'm thinking parents must have been born arond 1844---1847

also there are 2 deaths reg for catherine mortimer at westport is that near to the area i'm looking at? born 1844died march 1879  & b 1844  d 1926

Think you can discount the 1879 death (Westport is in Co. Sligo) as James and Catherine are in 1901 census-
www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Fermanagh/Doon/Cornahoule/1357613

Son James & family in 1911 census with father James- Catherine died between 1901 and 1911:

Francis Joseph born (28 Aug.1878) Cornahoule which is the actual townland.

Have edited my last post re: Derrylin.

Derrylin is in Kinawley civil parish and Cornahoule in Aghalurcher civil parish- both in Lisnaskea Poor Law Union/civil registration district.
