Shane -

Just wanted to bounce this find off you.....

I was looking at Ledwith births and found that Patrick Ledwith and Bridget Keenan had a daughter named Margaret in 1865....

According to the 1901 census, Mary Ellen was 36.... (DOB 1865 aprox).

Maybe this is who Mary Ellenīs 1st daughter is named after? IF these Ledwiths are her parents?

I think any of those 3 couple's in the area are possible - the problem is proving a connection, rather them being just possible parents. Any of those couples could also have had children born before 1864 - so not included in civil records.

The problem with extracted records is that they are not complete, so there could be other children that we are not seeing listed, that might help re dates, names etc.. The only other child listed for that Ledwith/Keenan couple is a Peter in 1869 - so there could be other children in between...

Still trying to find a connection here.... Although I still find positive the Keenan connection due to my GG grandmothers witness at her wedding was a Keenan.

Does anyone out there have a connection to the Keenans?

Hi,  I'm new to this forum.  I'm researching the Keenan family of Longford and all I have is Brigid Keenan(my 3rd great grandmother)  married Samuel Ridgeway and had my 2nd great grandmother Elizabeth Ridgeway.  However,  my mother-in--law is a Ledwith from Dublin and if my research is right,  they are also from westmeath/Longford.  It's as much as I have right now but if I get anywhere I will be quite happy to pass it on.

Sorry Dolores, but I'm just not that far back in my search to be able to help. My great great grandmother (Mary Ellen Ledwith)  was born around 1865 and right now I am looking for the name of her mother.

Good luck and hopefully we can help each other out in the future!
