Death sought of Ellen Reilly (née Deegan), born 1857
« on: Friday 18 August 17 11:34 BST (UK) »
The couple James Reilly and Ellen Deegan marry on 23 Oct 1877 in Castlecomer, Co. Kilkenny. The couple had 16 children, born between 1878 and 1903.

James Reilly was baptized in 1849 in Doonane Parish, Co. Laois, and died in Co. Laois on 18 Oct 1915. His death certificate says he was a widower at that time. He lived in Dromagh.

Ellen Deegan was baptized 1857 in Ballyadams Parish, Co. Laois. Her parents were Martin Deegan and Margaret Delaney.

I find the couple in the 1901 and 1911 census, living in Drumagh, Turra, Co. Laois.

I seem to be unable to find the death of Ellen Reilly, née Deegan. If the census and the death certificate are both correct, her death should be between 1911 (census) and 1915 (death certificate of her husband stating that he was a widower). Any help will be appreciated.

Hi,
I have searched every site I use and I can't find her. I even searched with her maiden name.
No record to be found, sorry
