I did look at the 1871 census and found it very confusing. Each family is a separate schedule number so it looks like Ancestry has lumped all the crofts on one page which is unusual. If you see the original census on SP I guess you will find Catherine is on her own. Janet is noted as mother in Law to John & Isabella Murray & family.

Well, thanks for all your help.  You can see that this is an impossible task and someday a reliable source will pop up giving me the information I need.  Irish records are even worse!
