Thanks for getting back to me. I'm almost certain that they were all Catholic. I know the Honan family is native to the area and they were certainly Catholic. I can only imagine how incredibly scandalous any marriage outside of the Catholic church would have been at the time. One interesting thing, though, that I found on familysearch.com was the birth and baptismal record of a Henry Kitchen, born November 2, 1803 in Liverpool, England. He was the son of Thomas and Margaret Kitchen (his oldest son that I know of was also Thomas). He was baptised in St. Paul's Church there on the 27th of that month. I don't know if that Church is Catholic or not. I think that a lot of migrant Irish laborers floated over there on rafts for seasonal farm work. I wonder if they could have been migrant workers in Liverpool. I don't know what became of those Kitchens. If Kitchen was not a name native to Kilkee & Killard parish, is it possible they could have migrated there in Henry's lifetime? If so, I wonder how one could find that out. Thanks again, I really appreciate your time and effort.
