Cavan / McVeigh and Reilly, Belturbet, Cavan
« on: Tuesday 12 December 17 02:13 GMT (UK)  »
My great aunt, Annie Reilly, born in Belturbet in 1893, married a Francis (Frank) McVeigh in 1919 in Belturbet. Frank was a widower and a tailor. I believe I found his death record in in 1945--a Frank McVeigh died in Belturbet, a tailor living on Holborn Hill.

But I don't have any other information about him or about Annie. I can't find an Annie McVeigh's death in Cavan on either or on findmypast. Unless I have missed something. As I know very little about my grandmother's siblings after she left Ireland for Canada in 1906, it would be great if I could find something out.

My grandmother had this photo in her house. It is a photo on cardboard, the cardboard was cut to fit a frame I guess. No writing on the back, no photographer's name or date or anything. It looks like the woman is posed in a photographer's studio though.

I would dearly like to know what date this might be. I am guessing very late 1800s, possibly early 1900s? It could possibly be my great aunt who was alive from 1893 to ????? My last notation for her is the 1911 census in Belturbet, Ireland.
