Catherine Madden married John Audley and had two sons born in Kilteevan in 1848 and 1851. I am looking for a record of the marriage and also information on the Madden family. When Catherine emigrated with her son and husband her mother, sisters and brothers also emigrated with her. Her parents appear to be George Madden and Mary O'Brian.

    I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and could not find the marriage record for Catherine Madden and John Audley. I did find a possible baptismal record for a Catherine Maddin October 16 1824 parents George Maddin and Mary (no last name shown), Sponsors were Francis Maddin and Elizabeth Maddin.The baptismal record was in Athleague RC parish which is just west of Roscommon/Kilteevan. Likely the marriage was in Athleague and the records are on Roots Ireland but no record showed up on a search.  Here is the link to the Athleague parish register  You can search around 1847 to see if you can locate the record.

    I also looked for a John Audley baptismal record and there were two in the Roscommon/Kilteevan records

    John Audley March 7 1821 father Henry Audley mother Mary Bermingham

    John Adly September 13 1825 father Henry Adly mother Mary Adly

    It is possible that there is only one family. Maybe the 1821 John died young and the the 1825 child was also named John and he is the John Audley who married Catherine Madden/Maddin.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

  • Hello Rodger, Thank you very much for your helpful response. It is great information to have the location of the Athleague Parish. I wll follow up with your link to see what more I can find about Catherine. I appreciate the information of John's baptismal records. The later date matches records in the USA. John Audley died in an Alms House in NYC. His death certificate states that he was from Roscommon where his father was a butcher. I've not been able to confirm this.
