Looking for information on Carolus Spelman married to Maria Farrell. Know children are Patritium (baptized May 25 1862), Joannem (baptized Aug 28, 1864), and my great grandfather Michael Joseph (baptized Aug 23 1866). Thank you

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The only Patrick Farrell baptism in 1862 with father Charles was in the Roscommon RC parish but the mother's name was Mary Lamb.

    The 1864 and 1866 records showed Mary Farrell and were in Kilteevan. The family lived in Cullenboy townland according to the 1866 record on Roots. I believe Cullenboy is actually Killeenboy.

    Forgot to mention that I did not locate the marriage record. Possibly they were married in a neigboring parish such as Clontusker where marriage record do not start until 1865.

    Also the 1855 Griffiths for Kilteevan shows two Spelmans in Killeenboy--John and Patrick.
