You say it would have been before 1900- which is the last census you have found her on?

If you'd like one of us to look for you- can you give us all the info you have on her...DOB who she married,when and what kids she had.

All will help us to find her to narrow down the timescale of her death.

This is a thread from 2009 and Irisheyes hasn't been online for 6 years!
If she is still using the same email address she will be notified that you have posted here and might come back online.However she never did respond to our questions back in Dec 2009,so may have found the answer to her query.
