« on: Saturday 30 January 21 22:22 GMT (UK) »
I am a direct descendant of Daniel Fowley and Brigida Kelly from County Sligo.  I am looking for the following information:
Daniel Fowley's parents.
Daniel Fowley's marriage to Brigida Kelly(b. 1832) records.
Daniel Fowley's relationship to Hugh Fowley(neighboring lots according to Griffiths Valuation)
Daniel Fowley's relationship to Jacob Fowley(also tenant in Gortnagrelly according to Griffiths)

Here is the information I have:
I found him on the Griffith's valuation in Gortnagrelly along with Hugh and Jacob Fowley.
Daniel Fowley emigrated to New York in 1868
FamilySearch record number for Daniel Fowley: K4YP-28W

Jacob Foley died in Gortnagrelly on 6 Mar 1886 68yo.

Hugh Fowley died in Gortnagrelly on 13 Jan 1909.

Daniel's first child baptized  15 Jan 1854 is named Jacob. The witnesses are Jacobus(Jacob) Fowley and Maria(Mary) Kelly. This would imply that Daniel's father's name was Jacob and Bridget's mother's name was Mary. This is also based on the first daughter named Mary as well.

The family tree on ancestry lists Daniel's mother's name as Anna O'Burne. I would also think that Daniel's mother's name was Anna as well because his 2nd daughter's name was Anna.

I would suggest making a free account on findmypast, so you can search the Catholic records for free.
