I've run up against a problem trying to trace my McKenna family ancestors back beyond the 1860's. My great great grandfather is Peter McKenna who married Ann of the various surnames. They settled in Drogheda where my great grandfather, John McKenna was born and baptized in 1864. The family was Roman Catholic and worshipped at St. Peter's Church in Drogheda.
I did find one reference in the index to Griffith's valuation to Anne Conochy of Richardstown but the reference led me no further.
I'm trying to find Ann's birthplace to see if I can determine where Ann and Peter were married. They were not married at St. Peter's in Drogheda and truth be told I'm not even sure if one or both are native to County Louth.
