My family was from the Coogue Middle, Ballyhounis, County Mayo. My Gr Grandfather was born approx. 1869 and was named Pat Muldowney. He married twice, first Bridget Mulkeen who appeard to die in 1876. He then married Annie Caulfield in 1877.
His father was also named Pat Muldowney and was born approx. 1842. I don't know who his spouse was.
I have much info on the muldowneys earlier than this, but not much from the 1860's and back
