A researcher from Ireland found the following record for Susan McLuen. "My final search on the family was for death records of the family. I located two burial records in the Bumlin Church of Ireland Parish Records; they were for a John McLuen and Susan McLuen. I feel that John was Richard's father as the land in the Tithe Applotment Books was in the name of John McLuen. The actual year John died in was not legible, but it was some time in the 1830's. Susan McLuen was only 35 when she died, so she was only 14 when her first child was born. The details of the burial records were: Susan McGluen [could be a typo] Townland Address, Lisroyan, Strokestown; Source, Bumlin Church of Ireland Parish Records, Date of Burial,
10 February 1855; age 35."
