Hi All,

The information I have is as follows:
Phillip Flynn and Eleanor Morris were married in Drumlumman South (Ballymachugh) on 30 January 1858.

Mary Flynn (daughter) born on 14 November 1858.
Sponsors – James Morris and Marcella Flynn.

Patrick Flynn born 27 December 1861.
Mother’s name transcribed as – Marrow
Sponsors - ? McTierney and Bridget Flynn.

I can find no other children for Philip and Eleanor.
I have traced some of Eleanor's family as well.

The Marcella Flynn above is I believe Philip’s sister. We are related by DNA.
Marcella went on to marry in 1859 and I have traced all her family.

Philip has always been my stumbling block. Information on him has been so hard to find.
He seems to have disappeared after 1864 when he was the informant at Marcella’s baby’s birth in Granard.
I think Phillip was born about 1835 in Castlepollard in Westmeath. This would make him about 9 years younger than Eleanor who was born in Kilkenny in 1826. I may have the wrong Phillip.
I can find no record of Phillip’s death, have searched everywhere.

I have all the information about Patrick, his marriages and siblings and all their families.

Thanks to everyone for trying so hard to help, I am really appreciative.

Thanks for the information. It saves my posting what I have found.

Just one thing - re Patrick’s Godfather, I think it looks like Hugo (Hugh) McNerny.

Philip and Ellen’s witness was also Philip Flynn - was that his father?
30th January 1858

On the birth of Maria Hyland, Philip Flynn is still in the same area - his residence shown as Kilgolagh.
