Theodosia Eliza Morgan, died in Cork Ireland, in 1896
« on: Monday 30 January 17 00:47 GMT (UK) »
Name:   Theodosia Eliza Morgan
Estimated birth year:   abt 1813
Date of Registration:   Oct-Nov-Dec 1896
Death Age:   83

Volume:   5
Page:   108

*********************************
I am trying to locate details of the life of Theodosia Morgan whose death record appears above.
I am hoping for some help in discovering if:
her maiden name was Belcher or Belchere?
she was related to the Captain R.T. Belcher of the Bandon Railway Company in Cork?
she was the wife of Thomas Morgan? (And if so, was he an engineer? the son of Rev. Moore Morgan of Dunlavin?)
had any children?
is buried alone or with others, somewhere in the Cork area?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks.
