Power-Cole or Colo from Killucan Parish

Surnames: POWER, COLE, COLO
3 brothers by the surname of POWER immigrated to America around 1855. They were James born abt 7 April 1829, John born abt. 19 January 1831 and Michael born abt. 21 September 1833. A sister Easter(Henrietta) born abt. 13 April 1845 immigrated later around 1970's to Conneticutt and married a Walsh. 2 sisters Catharine born abt. 17 March 1836 and Mary born abt. 15 March 1839 did not immigrate. Parents are said to be John POWER and Margaret (Marcella-Madge) COLE or COLO. They were to have married 28 April 1828 in Killucan Parish, County Westmeath. I am trying to Confirm this info and find when these 3 brothers actually immigrated and on what ship and to what port and if there are presently any descendants of this family still in Ireland. I do not know if the 2 sisters who remained died and therefore did not immigrate or chose to stay. Also there may have been other brothers or sisters born after the immigration of the older ones. Mike is my husbands gr-grandfather therfore we are very interested in his family. He and his brother James settled in the state of Georgia in Carroll County. We are planning a trip to Ireland and want to come to this area and meet any possible family. Thanks for any and all HELP.

Do you know if thre would be a way for me to communicate with these Coles? I live in the U.S. but very much want to write or talk with them. Do you happen to know if there are any Powers families left? I now understand that my family was possibly the only Powers in the area in 1800's. Thank you so much for your time and listing this info.

I know this is a little late but there are Coles still in the Killucan parish in the Thomastown, Derrymore area. Also in this area the is a place called Coles cross. I think its where the Killucan - Kinnygad road crosses the railroad tracks and the Coles house is next to it.

My great grandparents, WILLIAM CAREY and MARY KEOGHAN married February 1853 in Killucan, Westmeath. WILLIAM CAREY came over to the USA in 1866 via the SS TRIPOLI - a ship you might want to check out.

JAMES CAREY, CATHERINE HINCH (or Hinich??), WILLIAM CAREY b. 1841 or MARY KEOGHAN.
If any of the names above you recognize - please contact me.

Thomas WHITNEY's lands, etc., were "castles, towns and lands of Newpass, Rathowen, COLEMORE, COLEBEGG, Win(d)town, Ballygarron, Ballydorey" and others in Co. Westmeath.

Would the tune "Johnny Adair of Derrydown"
be John Adair of Derrydooan (who may also have
had properties in co. Longford just to the east) ?

Rathowen was to the east of Derrydooan Upper.

The tune "Johnny Adair of Derrydown"
may have been of John Adair of Derrydooan ?
