Mary & Carol,
More research available on for the Michael Blake Family suggest Michael was born Sept 28 1853 not 1855.
The 1853 date appears on his April 7 1935 Mason City,Iowa, US death certificate.
Also look at the 1861 Canadian census & 1870 US census.
He had 3 brothers, Tim=1840, John=1849, (James=Born 1858 in Canada) & 3 sisters Ellen=1843, Catherine=1848, Mary=1854.
All 6 excluding James were born in Ireland.Mary has an Irish 1854 birth date as per some family tree information.
The baptism records for Carrigaholt RC church start Feb 8 1853 but Michael & Mary are not recorded. Maybe the birthdates are incorrect or not registered as up to 30% of early births were never recorded.

Mary, I guess you are interested in where did Michael 1799 & Michael 1853/5 live in County Clare and that is a difficult question to answer.
As per the 1855 Griffith report we find 6 Michael Blake's listed in the townlands of Kilballyowen & Moyarta on the Loophead peninsula..
3 in Kiltrellig ( Could be the same person)
1 in Lissalougha
1 in Rahona West
1 in Bellia
As per the 1826 Tithe (Tax) report for Kilballyowen & Moyarta we find 6 Michael Blake's listed.
2 in Kiltrellig
1 in Lissalougha
3 in Oughterard
Michael's ( 1799) wife Johanna Jordan lived in Kilballyowen townland.
Over to you.
