Hello,Welcome to our site and thanks for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will do whatever I can to try to help you.
I will do my best to see what I can find. You mention that Owen lived to be 108 years old. Where and when did he die?
When and where did he marry ***** *****?
When did you find him in Cookstown, Co. Tyrone?
When and where were each of the children born?
Thanks for the additional information.
I found no civil registration or church burial information for an Owen Connelly (any spelling) who died in 1897 + or minus 5 years in Co. Tyrone or elsewhere in Ireland. I didn't find a marriage record anywhere in Ireland for Owen and ***** ***** 1822 plus or minus 5 years, nor for the births of their children. It may be that the church records have never been published. Civil registration of births, marriages, and deaths began in 1837, so a death in 1897 anywhere in Ireland should be there.
I saw a lot of stuff on ancestry.com about this family, not most of it was guesses, with not one record to prove anything.
