Hi,
Nearest one that I could find is baptism of a James Brophy on 11th March 1849 in Clonegal Parish to a James (?) Brophy and Janey(?) Walshe .Address given is Milltown and sponsors listed are Luke Brophy and Mag. Walshe.
https://registers.nli.ie//registers/vtls000634446#page/137/mode/1up

If that's the person the other children baptised to same couple include;
John-31st August 1851
Thomas 12th December 1852

Ok after looking at opening post again.You are in USA/Australia I presume so Clonegal will mean nothing to you.Its a Parish on the Carlow/Wicklow/Wexford border.Think parts are in each county but not certain.
The above James is the only male Brophy born 1849 that I could find in Carlow and the baptism date is close enough but remember not to get fixated on stated date of birth or esp. the year given as it depends on the informant having the knowledge.Usually its more likely that date is correct but year is incorrect.
