Hi Tom

(I am having problems sending this message, but I am trying again)

I am still searching for Bridget born 1890 Dau of John O'Donnell and Bridget Franklin on the 1901 Census, I believe I may have found her on the 1911 Census thought still not at home with her family.

The only Bridget (11)  I found on the 1901 Census was the Dau of Martin (60) and Margaret (46) O'Donnell in Monaraha Caher.  I am hoping you can help me in finding Bridget- she cannot disappear at 11 yrs old!!

I have also been to trying research the links between O'Donnell amd Halloran families!

 

Regards

Doreen

    I have searched in all Kilcommon and Caher in the 1901 census for Bridget.  She is only 11yrs old, where could she be- not with her family! yet all the other children are entered on the census. I even began a search for her in County Tipperary - but the task was so daunting as the name O'Donnell is like Smith in England.

    I thought she might be with her Grandad - but no luck there, or maybe with an older sister/ brother!

    I was told there was a dau Margaret born approx 1876/8 to John and Bridget, (this info was given by the last Parish Priest)  but this cannot be true as on 1911 census it states- 9 children were born - 6 were still living!

    Bridget and John were married in 1875 so three children were born /died in the following years.before son John was born in 1885.

    Apart from the website rootsireland.i.e is ther any other wesite that might be of help to me, as I have hit the 'Brick Wall'. 

    I am sure I have found her on the 1911 census (aged 19) working for a family.

    Thanks for the reply re Bridget.

    I have search that info and found its not 'my' Bridget............so the search goes on...............

    The father of Bridget Franklin (Mother to Bridget) is done as William Franklin on her Marriage Certificate -

    a Smith I assume is a Blacksmith - and not the Robert you mentioned in an earlier mail.
