The Latter Day Saints (LDS) have filmed the parish registers for the St. Mary’s Athlone Catholic Church, County Westmeath. The film covers baptisms from 1813-1827, and again from 1834-1970. The film also covers St. Mary’s marriages from 1813-1827, and from 1834 to 1868. This means if James Croghan and Maria Ryan were married in St. Mary’s, their marriage record may have been recorded. Likewise you can search the parish registers for the baptisms of James (1859); Bridget (1861); and Mariam (1863. Any children born before 1859 or from 1864 to 1868, may also have baptism records in the St. Mary’s Athlone Catholic Church.
In addition, if James Croghan and Maria Ryan were born in Athlone after 1833, their individual baptism records may also be in the St. Mary Athlone Catholic Church.
