Nice to hear from you cuz. If you are American/Canadian then there may be a letter from your sister in my mothers files.. She invited my uncle to her wedding, gave detailed info re the family & no surname of the man she was marrying....I must root it out & see if the connection is right
Herewith as follows
The Doolans of Cappagowlan, County Offaly, curtesy of my other uncle
Long Owen Doolan (b.c. 1816) married Judith Poland (b.c. 1823) a niece of Fr. James Poland of Meath diocese, in Kilcormac R.C. parish, in October 1832.
Mary bpt. Sept 1833 Mrs Spain
Anne bpt Jan 1836
James bpt Feb 1838 died young
Dorothea bpt Sept 1840
Daniel bpt Feb 1843 d. 3.3.1908, aged 65
Joseph bpt Oct 1845 Killed off a horse in U.S. in his twenties.
James bpt Jan 1849 d. 1924, aged 74, so bc 1850
Elizabeth bpt not registered Mrs Guinan

Griffith's Valuation of property carried out in 1854 shows that Owen lived in the townland of Cappagowlan. This is the civil parish of Killoughy and in the RC parish of Kilcormac. He is recorded in the valuation as "Dowling" a confusion common at the time.
Daniel Doolan m Elizabeth White (1852-28.11.1924, aged 72) in May 1871
