Hello - I have seen my g-g-grandfather's marriage record - James Mahoney b. ~1830 m. Mary Crowley in the marriage register for Enniskeane-Desert Serges for Feb 15, 1857. They lived in Balineen and my g-grandmother - their daughter Julia is in the record for 29 May 1871, she emigrated in 1888.  There are also siblings and I believe they all emigrated. 

My query regards the parents of James Mahoney and Mary Crowley - looking for their names and info.

I also don't know where or when James and Mary died or if either of them survived and emigrated. 

I do believe James had a brother John b. 1834 who later married Bridget Buckley. I'm also looking for any information regarding their marriage. 

Thanks for the help! Anything you can find would be wonderful!

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The RC records for the parish go back to 1813 for baptisms and marriages.  I would search on www.irsh   under the Church records TAB. That site has the records for Enniskeane/Desertserges parish and all other parishes in the Diocese of Cork and Ross. Hopefully, you will find leads for the baptismal records for James and Mary which will include their parents names.

    I don't see a John Mahoney/Bridget Buckley marriage record around 1860.

    Finding death records will be difficult because the names are very common. I believe they would have died in the Clonakilty registration district. Right now only images of death records are available from 1891-1940 at Civil records TAB. We are expecting that images for 1864-1890 will be available possibly later this year and then you can search for the records for James and Mary.
