Hello, Would anyone happen to have information about Nannie Higgins (aka, I believe, Anne Higgins).

Nannie (or Anne) is my great, great grandmother and was married to Edward Joseph Rafter, my great, great grandfather.

Edward Joseph Rafter was born in Maylough on 1st April 1843 to John Rafter and his wife (whose name I am also seeking).

Thank you.

    The 1870 civil marriage record shows that Edward and Anne were both living in Ballinasloe at that time.

    I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and found an 1843 baptismal reocrd for an Anne Higgins with father John in Ballinasloe. See below.

    The Moylough baptismal records start in 1848 so if Edward was born in 1843 a record would not be available.
