Thanks to all (Hallmark, Maggsie, conahy calling) who replied - I appreciate your time.

One little extra question, can anyone explain the Baptismal record quoting Deansrath? Transcription was done for me... by a genealogist.
Is this a common mistake?

Kilkenny / Deansrath - Help?

Could someone please help me? - I am trying to locate "Deansrath" - on a map. I seem to be going around in circles. Every map seems to send me to Danesfort.
I have Burns, Cummins ancestors who were baptised, the records state Deansrath.

Any suggestions or clarification would be appreciated.

Hi Biggles - just wondering if you are still active.
I visited Thomastown in 2005, found a gentlemen around the Catholic Cemetery and he told me I had just missed the PP at the time.

My ancestors where from Thomastown / Deansrath - James Burns married Margaret Cummins, 22 Nov 1824, Thomastown, witnesses: John Headen & Mary Tobin. They had three children William, Francis and Mary.
William bapt 20 Jun 1827, sp. Edmund Nurry & Anastatia Aylward, residence Deansrath
Francis bapt 2 Sep 1829, sp. James Laracy & Mary Wall, residence Deansrath
Mary bapt 6 May 1832, sp. James Wall & Judith Larrissy, residence Deansrath

Margaret and Francis emigrated in 1855. Arrived in South Australia and settled originally around Clare.

Family history - passed down from Francis to his grandchildren (my g aunts/uncles) - says that James was a Doctor, and that he, William and Mary all died sometime prior to departure. Margaret became a large landowner in SA, very uncommon for females, so she must have had some money behind her, hence/maybe supporting Dr story??; Francis worked the land for her - and together they increased the land holding. Side story - when building the Catholic Church in a new settled area - Francis was granted permission and chose the name St Canices.

I am wondering whether you can help me to ascertain any information on the names Burns/Cummins - how common are/were they in the area?
Do records of Doctors exist?
Burials at the time - does Deansrath have a Cemetery?

Any help would be appreciated no matter how small.
