Thank you very much for your message. I hope that someone with information makes a connection with you and helps you to further your research.
In the meantime, have you tried looking a t church records for more information? Most Catholic records are held locally so you may need to write to the local parish priest for possible assistance. One website that you may find useful is the Irish Times where they give an overview of what records are available in specific parishes. It also shows you where copies of the records are available. For Rath parish, follow this link:
As you can see from the above link there are copies available from Clare Heritage Centre. Here i their email if you would like to contact them, however please note that a fee may apply: email@example.com
You could also check for record of the family in the land records pertaining to Ireland in the 19th century. There are two:
The Tithe Applotment Books (1823-1838) found at http://titheapplotmentbooks.nationalarchives.ie/search/tab/home.jsp
and Griffith?s Valuation (1848-1864) found at http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/
Have you looked on the Co. Clare Library?s genealogy page yet? This is an excellent genealogy resource for those with ancestors in Clare. Here is the link:
