I have seen this Owen Friel and thought there could be a connection. Owen's father is listed as Morris Friel and my descendants is Bryan Friel.
At first I saw it listred as Bryan Maurice Friel, but later found out that it was listing two names Bryan & Maurice. There are two spellings on Morris/Maurice. If they are connected they would probably be brothers.
You say Owen was born 1845. My Bryan had several children and I'm not even sure that I have them all, but here is the list. John b. 1828 m. Elizabeth J. McCloskey; Willian b. abt. 1830 m.Mary A. Doughtery; Philip b. betw. 1835/1840 m.Margaret Brogan; Laurence b. abt. 1841 m. Mary Brogan; Ann no dates have been tolld she never married; Susan the same information.
The last time I was in Ireland the locals told me that there was a Owen Friel who lived in Mountcharles.
