Thank you for that tip. A presumed mistake on the birth record for Julia born 1868 was changed/corrected on the parish register viewable on Irish Genealogy. It can be seen that one name was crossed out  and replaced.  The civil birth record has never been altered and remains "wrong". Maybe the missing marriage record I am still looking for has remained undiscovered because of  similar errors?I will keep looking.

Yes I had also seen the article on the new mill, and had considered the possibility that the Nicholas Flinn involved there could have been the one buried in Kilsharvan. I have also come across references to a document containing an 1806 indenture between Patrick McLoughlin, brewer of Drogheda and Patrick Kerwan and Nicholas Flinn, linen weavers of Drogheda, for a house on the south side of West Street. The Kilsharvan Nicholas was a carpenter, so this would suggest another Nicholas living around the same time. In the registers of St Peter's Drogheda there is also evidence of another Nicholas from the following baptism records:

Anne 1785 - Nicholas Flynn + Alice
Mary 1784 - Nich + Alice
Mary 1787 - Nich + Alice

which are too early to be children of the Kilsharvan Nicholas.
