Griffith's evaluation 1848-1864 has a "Maraget"  ;D Reilly - Drumdartan Glebe, Oughterragh, Leitrim

and not positive I have the right couple here, but in case he was a brother to John sr. ( But didn't see a will to match a widow Catherine, so may be way off base)
Might this be the family on the census?

Thanks, everybody, for your input about the Reillys and Maguires.  The definitely seems to be the family I described and Maggie's birthdate fits.  I wish I had more tangible evidence that this is absolutely definitely her, but I do see that there is a brother, John, and a Kate Reilly was listed as a sponsor on my father's sister's baptismal certificate. I also see names of my father, Thomas and Francis, and Dad also had a sister, Mary.  I know these are common names, but could be evidence of a family link.  Unfortunately, I have been unable to track down a marriage certificate for Maggie and John Andrew Brady, which may also give more information.  They would have been married prior to August 1905 when their first child, Mary, was born in the parish of Kildallan, County Cavan.  I really appreciate all the input so far.  Thanks.
