St. Illtyd's RC baptism register-- McCART(H)Y
« on: Thursday 28 May 20 23:10 BST (UK) »
Hello, Helpful Person,
I am looking to learn parents' names for DEN(N)IS McCART(H)Y who gave his birth as June 17, 1859 in "South Wales."  I have found a few in civil birth indices, all in Merthyr Tydil.  I looked up RC churches in the area on Google and St. Illtyd's was one.  I also saw somewhere other McCarthys had been baptized there.
His parents may have been Dennis McCarty and Mary Cronin.  Or Hannah Cronin.  Or Norah Mahony.  Or Mary Brown.  His sisters Hannah/Anna/Joanna and Ellen both have Cronin/Crounnan on their death certs in Pittsburgh, PA.  Ellen is definitely his sister.  Hannah is pretty likely his sister.  I haven't verified other siblings listed on a cousin's tree (he has several errors elsewhere): Patrick, Mary Ann, John, Joseph and Daniel. All said to have been born 1857-1865. 
The family emigrated to the US about 1872-75. 
Both parents born in Ireland.
The only census I found with a Denis of the right age was 1861, but parents were Jeremiah and Mary, with siblings Florence, 11 and Mary, 5. 
I very much appreciate your willingness to look this up.  Thank you!
