You could try putting a letter in the local paper in westmeath.

Have you got any of her children's birth certificates if often says who was at the birth mainly sisters of mums.

When she died what did the obituary say did it say wife of and also daughter of

Died 30th November 1900 so probably not in paper.

I have found eight civil records of births for this couple
All show her name as CARTY as does her marriage record
There are four baptisms accessible on-line
Notable on all is a lack of the names CARTY in witnesses or sponsors

At the time of her marriage her occupation was a servant
I wonder was she from another area?

If you search for a Michael CARTY in Westmeath in the Griffiths Valuations LINK
There are only three hits; all in Kilkenny West, Westmeath; two in Carrickfin and one in Tobberclare

It doesn't immediately help with your search but could prove useful if you find more information later

I have a christening record, spoke to the parish before. Sometimes the priest has a note of fathers of illegitimate children, just not in this case. The people that were God parents are called smith. No longer in the area. Have next door neighbour and family who played together as kids ( she was granny reared until her grandfather died, granny took her back to England but died on the boat journey. The police took her to her now married birth mothers house introduced as as her sister. She forgot and called her mammy, the birth mother beat her, she ran away. Police found her, mom had her put in foster care and never contacted her again..She was 5/6. I found the mom,now deceased a few years ago, she gave that name. Mcguinness as birth dad before she died.) She wants closure..the search goes on.
