In 1869 Edward Spillane (who might have changed his name to Spellman later on) and Ellen Tierney had a daughter Honora. I believe that earlier in the 1860's they had a son Denis. Baptismal sponsors included Patrick Tierney, Patrick Spillane, Bridget Meagher, and Mary Guantty?? The family was living in the parish of Dunkerrin/Finglas at the time. Is there anyone researching this family?
