It’s been a pleasure to assist. It has also been educational:-

As Eringobragh1916 provided the marriage year/quarter I checked it out, expecting to find a Hannah Tailor Somebody. (Tailor being a middle name)
But no, it shows Hannah Taylor.

A search through the listings for St Joseph gave the following other baptisms for this couple (there might have been more) DoB, Baptism and parents.

Joannes Josephus Kane
16Jan1872 04Feb1872 Jacobi Kane, Anna Taylor

Jacobus Kane
18Sep1874 30Sep1874 Jacobi Kane, Hannæ Taylor Kane

Marian Kane
24Nov1883 09Dec1883 Jacobi Kane, Hannae Taylor

Maria Hannah Kane
17Nov 1888 21Nov1888 Jacobi Kane, Hannah Taylor Kane

So a Catholic Church includes the mother’s maiden name. That is something I did not know. Do they all do it, I wonder?

And as Reggie states, name spellings vary. Apart from Hanæ Tailor Kane for your man, there are the above variations.

The search for siblings produced a plentiful list of Kane baptisms. It is likely your family group is related to some of them. Let me finish with what I consider to be one of the ‘best’ baptisms I have seen for quite a while(!)

From the same Church.

Patritius O’Kane
02May1878 09Jun1878 Joannis O'Kane, Mariæ Annæ O'Hara O'Kane
