My great-great-grandfather, Thomas Kelly, married Anne Gately at Ballybay on 7 Feb 1842 who subsequently gave birth to my great-grandmother, Bridget Kelly (bap. 30 Nov 1842 Kiltoom).

Bridget had (at least) three step-siblings:

Ignatius A. Kelly (b. Abt 1830 [probably Roscommon])

Margaret Kelly (b. Est 1832, Roscommon

Anne Kelly (b. 1835, Galway or Roscommon)

Thomas Kelly must have been previously married.  I seek details of this marriage and the birth of these three children and the birth and death of Thomas and his former wife.

Thank you for the genealogical skills you may be able to invoke.

    I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and looked for a baptismal record for ignatious Kelly since that name is uncommon. I did not find a record from 1826-1835 with father Thomas. I looked at Thomas Kelly marriage records around 1830 but there were too many (22) to determine if one of the 22 was for your ancestor. There were Anne and Margaret baptismal records in Roscommon in the early 1830s but no common mother.

    My guess is that the three children were baptized in a parish that no longer has records back to 1830-1835.
