Mary L. Corless born in 1851 (County Galway or Mayo?). Historical writings say her parents were Michael and Mary Corless or the "north of Ireland" but when she died in Apr 1893, her death certificate listed her parents as Thomas and Margaret Corless. It indicated she emigrated to the USA 30 years before her death which would have been 1860-1870. She married Rufus C. Morris of Westchester town in NY on Sept. 17, 1883. Children were John and Joseph Morris (twins 1884-1884), Thomas Edward Morris (1886-1968), Willam Henry Morris (1887-1826) and Alice Elizabeth (1890-1921).
My Grandfather was her son, William Henry. I have added a photo here which may be Mary or a close relative. It was found in my Father's belongings after his death.
