September 21, 1821
Owen Rorke was married to Bridget Cunningham, in presence of Thomas Sands and Elizabeth Murphy


I looked in the Kilbroney baptism records from January 1824 to November 1827 for other children of this couple and didn't find any. I didn't look after the baptism of Henry.

Another transcriber's records only had two children for this couple as well.
