Burke's of County Cork, Ireland

+6 votes
I am looking for help with finding information on the Burke's who lived in County Cork, Ireland.

Michael Burke - Born abt 1820 in Ireland, married Catherine Keefe 1/1/1842 according to the Catholic Parish Records in Castlelyons, County Cork.  Michael and Catherine had four children before morning to America: John - Abt 1843, Patrick - 3/17/1845, Thomas - 12/6/1847, and Son Michael - 9/0/1850.  The naturalization documents for Patrick and Thomas show County Cork, Ireland as place of birth.  Son Michael has a parish baptism in Castleyons for 1850.  I have no records for John outside of the 1855-1870 Census records, he does not show up in 1880 and cannot find him in any other documents.  I have a death records for Patrick and Catherine.  No death records for Father Michael, John, Thomas, or Son Michael.

Michael and Catherine's marriage shows a witness of Patrick Burke, could be a Parent or Sibling.

Catherine's Death record shows her parents as Thomas Keefe and Nancy Jeffers.  The 1880 Census, shows that she has a sister living in Boston named Mary Keith (Keefe)

The family left by Liverpool, England on the Break O' Day registered out of Maine, arriving in Boston on September 4, 1854.

All of the source documents are on their respective profiles.

I would love to have any new directions to follow or help.
