Jane (Dickinson) Langford, born 1811

My family and I are coming to Ireland in early April. We know a bit about our relatives in Mountmellick and Rosenallis, County Laois, but because our trip is short, we need help in finding out more about our relatives before we arrive.

Here's what we know:

My maternal great-great-great grandmother was Jane (Dickinson) Langford, born 1881, in Mountmellick, Queens Co. Her parents were Jane Deveral and Thomas Dickinson, both of Mountmellick.

Jane (Dickinson) Langford's husband, George Langford, (born 1812) was the son of
William Langford (born 1773 in Avolla, near Mountmellick) and Ann Westman, born 1774 in Ireland.

We think George Langford and Jane Dickinson were married on Feb. 4, 1832, in the Rosenallis Church in Mountmellick. They left for the United States the same year to settle in Illinois.

What we'd like to know:

1. Any clarifications or corrections to the above dates, places or events.
2. Any guidance on how to contact ahead of time the Rosenallis Church in Mountmellick, and any help to arrange ahead of time, if possible, a visit to the church, if it still exists, and a look at any records of the family in Mountmellick or Rosenallis.
3. Any additional information about the families. Especially any burial or transportation records, family tree, etc.

Thanks very much,

Sarah WIlliams
