I am searching for connections in Wexford, Ireland for the parents of Michael ROCHFORD (var. spellings) born abt. 1846 to Garrett(Garratt?)ROCHFORD and Catherine SULLIVAN.
Both parents die of the fever when Michael is around 12 years of age (1858?) and he is sent to live with his mother's sister, his Aunt Esther, in Stalebridge, Cheshire, England. I find him on the English census starting in 1871 (name spelled REATCHFORD) once he is married to Elizabeth McCabe. They raise their children Catholic. Our large family descends from them.
Catherine SULLIVAN might possibly be O'SULLIVAN?
Any of this sound familiar?
Can any one suggest possible parish records to search?
All we have is the evidence on U.K. census showing Michael born in Wexford, Ireland. No idea whether that was county, townland or city.
Appreciate any suggestions,
