Had the date wrong for Jeremiah b 29 Dec 1820 Blarney.  Do you have records for this date? Found marriage for Laurence and Ellen, Births of Catherine, Patrick, Michael, Margaret.  one other page wasn't sure of childs name and date.  Hard to read.  Would this parrish have cemetery records? I think the parents died in Ireland.

    Below are links to the partish registers for Donaghmore and Blarney. Donaghmore baptismal records start in 1803 so possibly Ellen would be listed. You may find the daughters in the Blarney register. I checked the Tithe listings but did not find Laurence. Also, checked the 1852 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing for Garrycloyne parish (which includes Blarney) but there were no Dorgan records.
