I have an Eleanor Kilooly (note spelling) married to Francis Rork with 2 children, James b. 19th June 1838 and Patrick Rorke same parents b. 20th Feb. 1842, the Townland is unreadable. These limited records are from the Kilronan Parish records in Roscommon. Our family spent several years searching in Leitrim but it was the Roscommon side of Lough Allan that was the place. My g.g.g.g grandfather was Thomas O'Rourke (stone Mason by trade) and Ann Keef married abt 1830. I wonder if you William Francis was part of this family. These families were Gallic speaking and all intermarried family from this Agrina area. Any info on Keef (all in US now) or Rorke's would be appreicated. I believe Thomas and Ann had at least 7 sons 2 going to US (1 in Phildelphia) and 5 to Edinburgh Scotland.from 1820 - 1860.
Cheers Ann
I also have a Mary Flynn married to Patrick Rowane
Mary Kelly married to Michael Rorke abt 1835
