I don't know if we have already had the link to the marriage but it is here

Ancestry indexes show names as Collohan and Metia.

Thank you, Sinann. I should have read further back but thought from Gibby's latest post that it wasn't yet proven.
I do remember this thread from last year and posting on it! However, it is now refreshed  ;)

I was killing time at work yesterday so read it all, I usually find that a bit tedious and only skim through.
Now it's in danger of going around in circles so to sum up.

The marriage of Thomas Callaghan and Ellen Melia on the 25 July 1867 has been found in the NLI parish register but the GRO has no record of it therefore there is no civil cert.
So if anyone can find a church record of it that names the parents, please don't keep it to yourself.

Hi

Thomas Callaghan was my 3x great grandfather and he was born c1848 in Navan, Meath according to some research I did a while ago.

He married Ellen Melia on 25 July 1867 in Oristown, Meath and they had five children between c1870 and c1879.

I was in touch with two sisters in Australia who originally came from Ireland. 

Their great grandfather Thomas Callaghan was the younger brother of my 2x great grandfather Michael.

They told me that Thomas senior died in 1904 but I haven't been able to confirm this or find any other information about him.

Thanks.

Now that the civil Certs are online it may be worth following up on these children.
I have a grandfather as informant on a couple of childrens birth Certs, he is named as occupier of the house.
It would also give an address which might help.

Perhaps OP could list the names of the 'five children between c1870 and c1879' to save us wasting time. Only a few are in Extracted Irish Births on LDS site-
Margaret (1874) https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:F5VJ-J7D
Josephine (1876) https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FR9M-C22
Ellen (1879) https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FRQ3-3PF
Please do NOT ask for lookups by Personal Message.

The children are here in this thread http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=526528.


According to the website http://www.rootsireland.ie/ Michael was born/christened on 19 October 1870 at St Mary's, Navan, Meath, Ireland.

No birth certificate was found for Michael so I'm wondering if his birth was before registration began.

He was the son of Thomas and Ellen Callaghan (formerly Melia) who were born in Navan c1848 and c1850 respectively.

Michael's siblings are;

Margaret (9 March 1874)
Christina (2 March 1876).  No christening or birth can be found for this child so I'm wondering if Christina and Josephine are one and the same.
Josephine (2 March 1876).
Thomas (1877).  No birth certificate found for this child.
Ellen (30 August 1879).  All born in Meath.

I found more baptisms earlier, I think, but presumed that Gibby has now updated since the new record collections.
