The way I found my Peter was by using Griffiths Valuation. There were only 3 Peters in Westmeath and a researcher looked at the films. We were lucky to find his marriage to Rose Kenny/Kenney in the Collinstown parish films the first try. The Westmeath catholic parish films are available thru familysearch.org. You order them and view at a local FHC.
Griffiths -- search "cul" for Jane and see if there is a cross reference between moran/cullman in Griffiths (you'll find Colmans also):
Do we correspond a few years ago on your Peter Moran? Were they with Kennys? They were grocers in VA?
