Greetings from New Zealand!
I'm endeavouring to positively identify my great grandparents - Michael GILLIGAN and wife Mary?(nee COYNE or perhaps CODD?) Michael GILLIGAN was the Gardener at the Lowtown Manor House near Kinnegad in the 1850s. At least 4 of their children - Jane, Eliza,Thomas & Patrick - emigrated to New Zealand in the 1870/80s. New Zealand Government records give their mother's maiden name as COYNE, but the Baptism Index at St Mary's Catholic Church in Kinnegad provides the name of "CODD" and claims Michael GILLIGAN and Mary "CODD" married at neighbouring parish of Ballinabrackey 28 November 1845.
So, who was Michael GILLIGAN"s wife? I would be most grateful to have her accurately identified.
