Hi I NooshieW,

Who was born in 1807? Is that Michael's father?

Sorry, I understand it now  ::) I didn't realise they married in Alnwick so you would have his father's name.
Which census shows Roscommon as birth place please?

Margaret's birth is allegedly Roscommon and her baptism in 1830, so it has been assumed that possibly Michael was also from there. I am researching for someone else so have their information.

it is difficult because you do really need more information re birthplace.

The transcribed baptisms of the children show various spellings of Burn. There is no image so it could just be interpretation but you need to keep this in mind when you are searching elsewhere.
They are mixed in here http://www.rootschat.com/links/01joc/

There is also a marriage which could be Michael's sister and might help you- Elizabeth Donohue with father Terence.

You also have the brother Patrick Donohue who is in 1871 census with the family so there are three siblings to help the search.
