  • The marriage for James Bohan and Catherine Murray is inclued the registers for the Catholic Parish of Killucan (aka Raharney and Rathwire),Diocese of Meath - see the first entry on the right hand page.   Bridget's marriage to Thomas Mahon almost exactly a year later is at the top of this page. Unfortunatly the baptism and marriage records for this parish only go back to 1821 so not far enough to include their baptisms.

    There are a number of earlier baptisms for the surname Bohan/Boyhan in other Catholic parishes around County Westmeath, but proving any links the your family in Killucan may be difficult.
