Catherine Wheeler and Samuel Sullivan

I am researching my 3x greatparents, Catherine Wheeler and Samuel Sullivan.  Catherine's parents were George Wheeler and Elizabeth (Betty) Herdman (4x great grandparents) from Heathstown, Clonmellon, Westmeath.  Catherine was baptized on April 25, 1792 in Clonmellon.  She had eleven siblings: Elizabeth,  Isaac, William, Rose, Michael, Jenny George, Patrick,, Matthew, William II, and Mary. I noticed that there are two Williams.  I am guessing tht the first William died? Catherine and Samuel had two children and according to Catholic Church records were born out of wedlock.  Daughter, Catherine Wheeler was born August 23, 1805 and my 2x great grandfather, Samuel Wheeler was born September 25, 1809.  I have been unable to find anything on Catherine Wheeler or Samuel Sullivan.  When Patrick Wheeler was born, March 17, 1795 the Wheeler family lived in Dardistown, Westmeath. Catherine is not found anywhere other than her baptismal record and the birth of her two children. I have found nothing about Samuel Sullivan other than he is listed as the father of the two children.  Samuel Wheeler raised his family in Ballyhorahan, Laois.  I do not know how or why he moved to Laois.  Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.  Jackie
