The Blennerhassett Challenge - Things to do

Here are some of my ideas for things to do if you are having a go at The Blennerhassett Challenge.

It is possible that you need to do none of these, and you can think of some clever search that will solve this problem overnight. One of the reasons I am throwing this open to the world is to look for new ideas. How would you tackle this problem?

The Public Record Office, Dublin, before its destruction by Irish "patriots" in 1922.
The 1821 census would probably solve the Blennerhassett Challenge immediately, by explaining who 14 year old George Cashel's parents were.
But it was burnt in 1922. My possible link to the Kings of Munster was lost because "Irish patriots" destroyed it.
They burnt the 1821 census, 1831 census, 1841 census and 1851 census.
See larger and full size.
From here.
