Surnames: Larkin Spellman Spollen
I am researching the Larkin's of Ballymoe, between Galway and Roscommon. Relation to Spellman (also rendered Spollen) by marriage. The Larkins moved from Ballymoe to Roscommon sometime on the mid-19th century. The Spellmans are still there.

Any connection?

There is definitely a connection here.

Your Br Leo is the grandson of John who was in the RIC before moving to Australia. John had a brother Dominic.

I have these people in my tree. I also have their parents, Michael & Bridget. They lived in Marnellsgrove, near Ballymoe, Co. Galway.

I did not realise that there was more than two brothers. Can I ask where you found the records for this family?

Do you have any more information on the brother who stayed in Ireland? Birthdates or spouse?

Thanks and welcome to the family.

Tony

What is your source for James Larkin (b. 1824) being a brother to John Larkin (b. 1848)? That is a big gap and not a lot of siblings to fill it out even if James is the eldest and John the youngest.

In an earlier post, you mentioned John has a sister Beatrice. Same person as Margaret who married McGloin?
