I am trying to find out the names of my ancestor's parents. His name was James Gilligan/Gilgan. He was born in Riverstown, Sligo (I'm pretty sure) on September 28, 1864. I know his mothers first name was Mary & that she might have been born around 1820. I don't have any idea who his father was. I also found that he might have a brother named John who was born around 1853. I'm not sure how this might help find his parents, but James married Mary Coen who was born in Leitrim on December 27, 1864.
It would be great if someone could help me out because all the researching gets me confused & frustrated. -Thanks!
