Comments

Augustin's baptism in Ireland is recorded as 18 April 1844 (Parish records

William had been born by the June 1870 census, so he can't have been born in December 1871 as stated in the 1900 census.  Denis was 11 months old at the June 1880 census, so he may not be the same Denis as Denis b 1881 in the June 1900 census.

Imputed marriaged dates

In 1900 they had been married 35 years i.e. in 1865.  On that basis, and taking their stated birth dates from the same census, Augustin would have been about 16 and Katherine about 13 when they were married.

In 1910 they had been married 42 years i.e. in 1868, which would fit with the birth of their first child William in 1869 (1870 census).
