Seeking Ferns and Bernard Family in Offaly

Classification: Query
Surnames: Ferns, Bernard, Feagan
Hello, I am researching my Offaly roots via the Bernard and Ferns families. Benjamin Bernard married Margaret Ferns in Parsonstown in 1859 and settled in Birr.

Ben (b 1837) is the son of John Bernard and Anne. He was born in Ferbane. He was Church of Ireland and converted to Catholicism in 1875. They had 12-13 children. Most moved to the US (New York), one to Australia and a handful stayed in Ireland.

Margaret was born around 1849 in Kilcomin to Dennis Ferns and Maria (Mary?) Feagan. Here God parents were Maria Lowry and Peter Ferns.

Any information on this family would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading.
