My ancestor is Martin Kelly. From 1818 to 1922 Martin had children born in the parish of Loughglynn with an address at Eden in County Roscommon. From 1933 to 1938 he had more children but in the parish of Tibohine instead with no address given. I remember reading that Eden went from the parish of Loughglynn to Tibohine in those school folklore collections so that may not be significant. There's a gap in the baptism registers of Loughglynn from 1826 to 1835. This happens to coincide with when the Tithe was being carried out in the parish. Tibohine only started recording baptisms in 1833. By the time of Griffith's Valuation in 1857, Martin was living in Cloonsheever which is a nearby townland in the parish of Loughglynn. However, this could have been his son Martin who had his first child in 1852.
Any thoughts on why I might not be able to find him or any suggestions? Since the Tithe records came out online I haven't been able to find him but brushed it off since I didn't think that I'd learn much from it anyway. Lately though I've been in touch with a Kelly relative and we're trying to find the connection without much luck and this might be able to provide a clue if I could find him. Any help would be appreciated.
