Denis MOCKLER born c1809 in Galway per RIC records
« on: Tuesday 25 July 17 18:16 BST (UK) »
Denis Mockler died on 09 Jan 1888 in Old Kilmainham Dublin. He married Belinda Gardiner and they had 8 children: Maria, Patrick, Bridget, Charles Denis, Catherine, Thomas and Arthur James. If anyone has any clues about Denis Mocklers family of origin / birthplace etc they would be most appreciated.
Kindest regards,
Mary

I see he's buried in Galsnevin
Number 255

You said in your other thread he was a member of the RIC http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=775714.msg6292711#msg6292711
finding his service record should give you his place of origin

His origin is listed just as 'Galway' on RIC service records - took a chance at posting on the off chance I might get a bit more to see if I can get further than what is on the records. I have details of his death etc it is origins I am trying to trace to see if I can get any further back.
Thanks,
Mary

Ideally you need his marriage to get his father's name and his religion to see which records to search if they still exist.
Same for his wife.

Any ideas where I might get the marriage details? Neither party is showing up on variety of searches on https://www.irishgenealogy.ie/en/ or http://www.findmypast.ie/

If they were RC
http://registers.nli.ie/ Ancestry has a free search by name that can narrow down years a bit
For both RC and COI I start with FamilySearch https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list/?page=1&countryId=1927084

Newspapers might be worth a try, the marriage might have been announced.

Looking at land records can help narrow down areas to search.

There are some Mockler's in Galway
but I can't find them in the Applotment books but the transcriptions can be a bit dodgy
