You could try a small writing project. There are 10 Coggins, 7 Finnerty's in the Ireland/Sligo telephone directory and 1 in Easky. Feeny either Galway or Dublin.
You could write them all as stamps are inexpensive genealogy.Addresses are sufficient for delivery.
It can be successful and gives you something to do while waiting for your post to be replied to.

You probably already have this information but here goes anyway:

Easky, in place names is listed as a village/town, parish.

In 1857 Griffith Valuation took place in Sligo, a valuation for taxes and it is used as a valuable census substitute.
It can be found free on line.

There are 40 Coggins listed - no Andrew so he may have been deceased by then. And none listed in Mary's name but the property lease could also pass to a child, there are Mary's but not in Easky Parish. There is a Thomas and a Daniel:

Thomas Coggins, Parish of Easky, Townland of Carrownrush
tenant of Chas. Tottenham, property #20 a house
Poor Law Union Dromore West

Daniel Coggins, same info but townland Finned property #29a house, outbuilding and land 20 acres 0 roods and 23 perches
Poor Law Union Dromore West

There are 8 Finnerty's, 3 in the Parish of Easy,2 x Thomas and 1 John.*note the Thomas could be one person with two properties.

There is one Coggins and one Finnerty in the commercial directories a grocer and a fruiterer.

Sligo belongs to a Hertigage Foundation a not for profit organization which provides county birth and marriage records on line. A small fee is charged.

Thomas Cogins born 1828,
Thomas Cogan 1830
Thomas Cogan 1831
Thomas Coggons 1832

Marriages 12 these are the most likely from your info:
Cogan 185l, Coggins 1855, Coggans 1871

Baptisms Mary:
Mary Finaghty 1823, Finachty 1829 and Feenaghty 1831.

No marriages for Mary or Ellen or Mary Ellen Finnerty.
There is one marriage for an Ellen Cogan 1867 Sligo.

The earliest birth for Mary Feeney is 1803 so earlier records either don't exist or your dating is out bit.

Andrew Coggins: only records are andrew Richard Cogan born
1874. and a Marriage 1828 for Andrew Cogan (which fits your birth year for Thomas)

As this is considered a commercial website by rootsweb you would need to contact me for this website by regular email. (put Foundation in subject)
