The Westmeath telephone book have 10 Walkers listed, the majority in Mullingar and Athlone. There are 77 Bell's
(also includes all first and last names that begin with B)
also in Mullingar and Athlone.

Griffith Valuation took place in Westmeath in 1854 which is before the marriage in 1858, so not likely that Alexander
was farming his own land, usually that happened after marriage but not always.

There are 9 Alexander Walker's, 9 named George and 3 named
James. It would depend on their place in the family as to the name of the father. There are 30 Bell's. You will need to match up parish's with the surname and you should be
able to reduce the numbers to a couple of parish's.

The easiest Griffith's to use for matching parish's is on
www.failteromhat.com with just name and Parish & Townland
you can then go to a more advanced website
www.askaboutireland.ie where you can fill in the name
and parish and you will see much more information such as the neighbours, the landlord, the size of the property
(offices are outbuildings)

www.census.nationalarchives.ie 1901/1911

Tithes 1829-1839 now available free:

www.genealogy.nationalarchives.ie

and
Ancestry (only name and place no detail)

Griffith Valuation:
There are 4 Richardson's in Cavan in 1856 - and 0 Richardson's in Westmeath

3 Power in Cavan and 5 in Westmeath - look for Parish's that match or at least a common Union (a Union contained
all towns, villages and parish's within 12 mi)

I would of done some for you but my viewer isn't working so I can't see the details.
