  • forgot to mention Roger that in the 1901 census u supplied it shows that Bridget Cawley was 19 so that would of made Bridget being born in 1882 (i know that sometimes the age range could be off but considering the children i have as being Mary's the youngest was born in 1874 so would of been 8yrs old when Bridget Cawley was born so that census is to me quite a bit off obviously not sure what yr William Cawley died or was born but considering Mary's death record also has informant Michael son i dont have a Michael Cawley in my records

    The census was taken on March 31 1901 so if Bridget was born in October 1880 then she was 20 when the census was taken but 19 is close enough. 

    I went thru all the Mary Cawley death records from 1911-1971 in the Castlebar registration district. The only married Mary Cawley in Cloughbrack was the record I sent. There was one other Cloughbrack record but that Mary was a spinster. See below. If there is no Michael in your family then likely the death of your Mary was not recorded.

  • yes so more than likely the death wasnt registered n like i said bout the 1901 census that Bridget couldnt be her grand daughter due to Bridget age and the eldest son being born approx 8yrs before Bridget. I know i dont have much in way of any details with regards Mary Bourke/Burke and obviously this doesnt help all i have is her wedding details to William Cawley  and their childrens deatils but no birth date n no death date obviously i only believe the dates i had given were about right death date could of been 10-20yrs earlier or later. I cant ty enough Roger for the help you have provided and might have to try some other way if there is any other way of finding birth record or non registered death's not that im asking you to stop looking as could be she was buried in Ballina or surrounding areas around Massbrook area that arent in Castlebar, obviously places like Westport could be a bit to far but just dont know
