Title: Barron/ Doyle
Post by: bmk923 on Wednesday 08 May 13 02:16 BST (UK)
I don't have much information, but I'm looking for information on the Barron family from The Rower, Kilkenny.  They had a daughter Marcella.  i'm guessing she was born between 1830-1842.  She married James Doyle of Whitechurch, Co. Wexford.  Marcella was related to the Barrons (Post Office) of Campile.

Marcella and James Doyle had two children, Michael born 1861 and died that same year.  Then they had Elizabeth Mary Doyle in 1862 (my great great grandmother).

Have you looked at Griffith's Valuation (land tax records). in the parish of The Rower- there are four entries for Barron c. 1850 - A David Barron in the townland of Ballilogue and also having land in Grange townland and a Walter Barron in Russellstown- either could possibly be connected to Marcella Barron.

See Link

Also looked at baptismal records on (pay site) and didn't find any record for a Marcella in the relevant timeframe.

Thank you!  Maybe her name is really Margaret.  A Margaret Barren married James Doyle in 1860 in Kilkenny.  Seems probable, as their daugher Eliza was born in 1862.

Weather permitting I will look for Marcella Kealy Headstone (nee Barron.)
Marcella is buried in Bennettsbridge. She came from The Rower.
