I was just going to ask the same questions as Aghadowey.

Do you have Elizabeth in 1911 - is she definitely born in Roscommon?

"Ognlla" would be the townland of Ogulla in Ogulla civil parish (Strokestown Poor Law Union).
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

I think the place is Ogulla- there are no Campbells there though in 1901.

However and whether this has any bearing on this matter, I don't know.

1901 census has a Reynolds family at house no 15 Bridge Street Strokestown - Kate though is only 9 yrs so won't be the witness
There is a Campbell family at house no 13 Bridge Street. The mother Anne is a widow.

There is a birth though on Family Search for a Michael (similar age to the one in this household and the parents are Charles and Anne  :-\)

I was wondering about her husband's name also  :)

See here to read about Poor Law Unions- (in Ireland most of the PLUs are the same as the civil registration district):
