I've found a Bridget Connor who died in 1903, aged 37. She is possibly Sarah's mother. Bridget is recorded on her death certificate as being from tipper (which I think is a townland in Longford). .  I am guessing her year of birth is around 1866.  I found several Bridget Connors born in 1866,. Though I don't know any way to narrow them down.

(I have a DNA match up to one of the descendants of Sarah and we are trying to work out the connection. I've been going through the various names to see if any match up with any of my ancestors - Keatings, Lyons, )

Unfortunately she was in the workhouse in ballymahon, and they don't record the full names - just initials. There is one C B initial with a age of 35.  (And another aged 75).

I don't have any marriage record for her.  I've checked Irish genealogy and family search.org and can't find any record.

Hi Mike,
I am new to genealogy and also interested in Sarah O'Connor born 1889, Ballymahon. I can find no record of a marriage or a death cert but I do know she had at least one child- a daughter- who was a relative of mine.

Thanks for the reply. I think she had a daughter  Elizabeth born in 1909,  and I believe I have a DNA link to one of her descendants through that line. (Though we can't be sure it's through that line, it might be through a different line altogether).  If you have done ancestry DNA of a any of the other DNA tests you can see if I come up as a match.
