I attach a record of the baptism of an Elizabeth Egan in Rathdowney in 1784. There are a number of "Egan's" in the parish
and it is possible that Elizabeth Egan is local to Rathdowney parish.
In regard to the surname "Sourthern", the earliest record I have found was in Geasehill, County Offaly in 1713, baptism of a
George Southern, Church of Ireland. His father recorded as Thomas Southern.
thank you so much!
