Well you are very lucky that this RC has some Deaths!  http://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0152 might get some early stuff.

http://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000632389#page/77/mode/1up gets Henry/Mary but no more info. (below 3rd X on Page!)

Yup thats the same scan http://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000632389#page/77/mode/1up gets Henry/Mary but no more info. (below 3rd X on Page!) which I got in Dublin at archives ....it is great that info is online now...  wish they had put his fathers name on.... I suppose next port of call is back to parish?....O'Briens in Leitrim/Roscommon were scarce as a family name in those counties....albeit there was another (unrelated - I think anyways) Henry O'Brien there....

OK.. was talking to a cousin of a cousin of your cousins, the O'Brien g/stone at Kiltoghert is 100% part of your lot and are 100% connected to the Gibbons!

So, you now have 3 names/dates to look up for Deaths and see who their father was!

The O'Briens are still living in the old homestead!
