I am researching the Quinlisk family as well. Your Michael may be the one listed here? The birth date is off by 4 years but thought I would send along this message.
I am trying to find birth record for James Quinlisk (m. 1837, Dunkerrin Parish, Co Tipperary North) He married Fanny Grace Dunne (b. 1822, Ballinakill, Co Laois. Thady Quinlish was a witness at this marriage.
James and Fanny (Dunne) Quinlisk have 7 children between 1837-53; all baptized in Ballydonagh, Dunkerrin Parrish, Co Tipperary North).
The children are Honor-1837; Michael-1839; Mary-1841 (myggrandmother who m. John Horan 1856); Anne-1844; Bridget-1847; Fanny-1850 and Hugh-1853.
Fanny was 15 years old at time of marriage. I make an assumption James is that age....and researching birth records around 1822 +/- 5 yr for James. There are several and it is difficult to pinpoint the correct parents.
The most promising one is:
Timothy and Margaret (Toohy) Quinlisk’s children - James (b. 1822), Hon (b. 1830), Michael (b. 1832), Theresa (b. 1837)
If any of these names match please contact me. Thank you.
