    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The RC parish corresponding to Ballysumaghan civil parish is Riverstown. The subscription site Roots Ireland has Riverstown records back to 1803.  As you indicated the 1823 marriage record is available but none of the baptismal records. Possibly they moved out of the parish after the marriage?

    I also looked at the 1824 Tithe records for Ballysumaghan parish and there were ten McHugh records listed including a William and a Rodger. Likely the Rodger was not your ancestor but possibly a relative.…

    You may want to add Roger's story to our XO Chronicles site and possibly someone will see a connection…

    Have you considered DNA testing?

    Let me know if you have questions.
