    The RC parish in the 19th century was Rathnure and Templeludigan and Killann was a variant name for the parish. The records for the parish are not included on the Roots Ireland data base but are included on the subscription site I found records for six children: Patrick 1854 Edward 1857 Mary 1862 John 1867 Anne 1872 John 1874. I wonder if one of the two John records was actually Johanna. Civil registration of births started in 1864. I found the 1872 civil record for Anne and at that time the family was living in Rathduff townland in Killaan civil parish. See next to last record.
