And Michael came through with more info (see below).If you see any connections w/your family, please let me know.Pat Pat, I think you just hit the jackpot! There are 7 property owners in Co. Roscommon with the surname Mulhare and they are all in the Parish of Kiltullagh. The best news is that there is a Bartholomew Mulhare, residing in the Townland of Gotramarle, in the list of seven names. Here is his record:
The other 6 Mulhare property owners include 2 John’s, 2 Michael’s, 1 Patrick and 1 Terence. Are any of these names found in the family?
Given that Bartholomew is not a common name and if he owned property between 1848 to 1864 in Co. Roscommon, I strongly suspect you have the correct person. What is more, you probably have the rest of the family as well.
If you want more good news, I also found that there are 8 Higgins who owned property in exactly the same Parish. You are going to need the Griffith’s Valuation CD from Family Tree Maker to research all of these names, and I would strongly recommend that you order it at: http://www.familytreemaker.com/188facd.htmlhttp://www.familytreemaker.com/188facd.html
