(O)KEEFFE family

Hello,

I am seeking any information on Margaret KEEFFE born 1834 in Durrow. Her parents were Laurence & Hanoria nee BRYAN though it may possibly have been BRIEN or BERGIN.  May have lived at 'Imovet' .Possibly related to DALY & CASSINS. I am not sure of the various spellings. Any help much appreciated.

Marion

Further to this, the BRYAN (James?) lived at Upper George st., Durrow in 1834.

    • Hi Eamonn,

      Thank you.  The KAFE one is correct, parents Honora BRYAN & Laurence KEEFFE.  KAFE is a new one on me but when I first looked her up in Australia she was indexed as RUFFE. No wonder we can't find people. She had a sister Anne bap 21 Sep 1836. Added was a comment G or YS James (or Jamey)  Margaret migrated in 1855.Her occupation was a nurse I believe she had a relation James BRYAN who may be the James on the GS thingy. Her father perhaps? 

      Regards,

      Marion.
