I am trying to find information on Patrick Higgins and Hanoria Higgins (nee Flanagan). They were married on 5 March, 1832 at Elphin, Boyle, Roscommon, and had six children Mary Higgins (1869), John Higgins (1835), Bartholomew Higgins (1838), Patrick Higgins (1841), Thomas Higgins (1844) and Martin Higgins (1847). Mary, Thomas and Martin all emigrated to America. Bartholomew (a policman) emigrated to Australia. John and Patrick stayed in Ireland. John had ten children.

Patrick Higgins had a brother Bartholomew (Batty/Bartly), John and a sister Mary. He may have had more brothers and sisters. I would like to find his parents.

Honoria Flanagan had at least one sibling, a brother Patrick. I would like to find her parents too.

  • Hello and Welcome to Ireland Reaching

    I have sent your query to a friend who has a lot of Flanagan connections in Roscommon and see what he comes back with

    Civil Registration of Births, Marriages and Death  did not officially begin in Ireland until 1864, so some of your dates are going to be very difficult to find.

    Have you considered or have you done your DNA to see if you have family still in Roscommon.

    I will keep looking and come back to you
