Catherine CARSON nee Leslie
« on: Sunday 08 May 11 13:44 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help?  I'm trying to find a date of death for Catherine (Kate) Carson nee Leslie who died between 1911 and 1916 in Drogheda.  The family were RC and parishioners of St Peter's in the town.

She was born in 1870 Co Louth to Thomas Leslie and Anne Reilly (O'Reilly).

The 1911 census shows she is still alive but her widower and family migrate to Liverpool in 1916.  I'd be grateful for any help establishing the date of her death.

27 Marsh Road Drogheda

there doesn't seem to be any good matches for her death on the BMD Index anywhere in Ireland between 1911 and 1916 - see : link

are you certain she died in Ireland ?

Only Henry and his family migrated in 1916 (except for eldest daughter Margaret who married Patrick Byrne in Ireland) all handed down from the last surviving child.

I'd allow for inaccuracies in passed down stories... they can have dates and other details mixed up a little... so it's worth verifying each step.

Strange I can find no children for daughter Margaret Carson and Patrick Byrne on FreeBMD yet I have a list of 7 named children.  ???  I wonder if they got married in Liverpool but went back to Ireland?
