Hi, I have Gannon's from Co. Longford. Do you have a gedmatch number ? I do show some distant matches to Killukid.
Bollincullen eventually became the townland of Ballyculleen. The Griffiths Valuation head of household listing for Killukin civil parish did not show any Gannon/Stapleton/Verdon records. Same with the 1901 census for Ballyculleen.
I also searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and came up with five of the six children you listed. I also found an Anne baptized August 13 1840 and did not locate a record for a Mary and so I'm wondering if Anne and Mary were the same person,
I would suggest a DNA test to try to locate distant relatives. They might not be in Ireland but possibly Canada, USA, Australia etc.

Welcome to Killukin Spookyv!
I'm the local volunteer for the Croghan, Boyle district.
I have come across all three of those family names in pre-famine records for Ballyculleen. (Click on the link to discover more records for this townland).
Here, you will find Gilbert, Dennis & Mick Gannon, James Stapleton, and Pat Verdon all recorded in the 1835 Tithe Applotment Records for "Bollincullen". As Roger confirmed, they had moved on by the time of the 1857 Griffith's Valuation.
I will be able to tell you more from my research notes, including how these families were related if you can add your Ancestor to the Killukin Ancestors board (with as much detail as you know) and tag "Ballyculleen townland" to your Ancestor under "building". Here's How to Add Your Ancestor to IrelandXO
Hope this helps!
