|I am attempting to research my father's ancestors John & Mary O'Brien.
Their first child, Michael, was born in 1849 presumably in Birdsall, Allegany County
as this is where they are documented as being in the 1850 US Census
According to the Census John was born in 1798 in Ireland, and Mary 1808 in Ireland.
The couple is listed as dependents of farmer Thomas Cusick in the 1860 Census.
Does anyone know where I would write to get a birth record for 1849?
