Welcome Muffin2019,

Here is the information that I have been able to locate. Catharine O'Reilly was born 8 September 1892 in Western Bay and was baptized on 11 September 1892. Her parents were Patrick O'Reilly, a fisherman, and Margaret Walsh.

Patrick Rielly (bachelor) and Margaret Walsh (spinster) were married 23 October 1875, Northern Bay, Corpus Christi Parish.

Her siblings are: Mary (bpt. 20 April 1878), Margaret (bpt. 6 June 1880), William (bpt. 3 September 1882), Maurice (bpt. 6 October 1884), Patrick (bpt. 20 January 1887), Alphonsus (bpt. 16 November 1889), Maurice (b. 6 November 1895/bpt. 17 November 1895), and John (b. 15 August 1898). The records for the first six siblings are from Northern Bay, Corpus Christi Parish, while the last two are from vital statistics. In addition, Patrick and Alphonsus were listed under Riely and Rielly respectively, while all the rest were listed under O'Reilly. The "O'" was not always used consistently.

You will notice that there are two sons named Maurice. This occurs when the first son passes away and the family wants the name to continue into the next generation. I hope you find this information helpful in furthering your research.

Yours in genealogy,
Mark

Patrick O'Reilly married Elizabeth Whiteway on 17 November 1813. They had at least five children: (1) William, baptized 15 October 1816, married Mary Fitzgerald; (2) John, baptized 7 May 1819, lost at sea; (3) Johanna, baptized 18 May 1824, married William Coole; (4) Patrick, baptized 11 May 1828; and (5) Alice, married Matthias Howell.

The Poor List of 22 April 1833 records Patrick Reilly as having seven people in his family.
