Drogheda is a town (which was taken by siege by Oliver Cromwell in abt 1650 and all inhabitants murdered) and a parish. I don't think there is a townland by this name.

I searched the Irish Family History Foundation's database for Louth. Rcds B4 1840 are sparse.

For the surname O'Neill (+variants), there are 1,233 B and 506 M rcds between 1700 and 1921. In Drogheda parish, there are 351 B and 82 M rcds in the same range.

For James O'Neill B 1830 +/- 4 yrs, I found 1 B rcd in 1828 in Ardee parish.

For a James O'Neill M 1850 +/- 4 yrs, I found 0 M rcds. For Catherine Dawson, ditto, I found 0 rcds. It appears the rcd of the event didn't survive, or they married elsewhere.

Google the Foundation's name to take you to this database. Post a reply to Genforum to tell me of your results.
