Connors/O Connor/Edmondson
« on: Monday 18 March 19 12:11 GMT (UK) »
Looking for a little help with a person in a family tree a friend is compiling at the moment.

They only have a small bit of info. to go on so here's what he has got at the moment;
A photograph of an elderly lady with a grandchild and the inscription on the reverse states this person is a sister of their grandmother.Her married name is Edmondson and she died aged 71.The photograph has been in the family for years and the person who wrote the note on the back is long dead so ?

If this person is a sister of their grandmother this leaves two possible people,either;

Catherine Connors/O Connor-baptised 6th September 1867 in Bagenalstown/Dunleckney Parish Co. Carlow.
Mary Anne Connors/O Connor-baptised 28th May 1877 same Parish.
Address for both is Ballymoon ,Bagenalstown, Carlow and parents are Thomas Connors(1839-1916) and Elizabeth Fenelon (1844-?).

They have accounted for all the other siblings of their grandmother so the above two seem to be the only possibilities.From memory they believe that the lady in question emigrated from Ireland to either UK,USA or perhaps Australia.Neither woman appears on the 1901 census in the family home and no likely candidates can be found elsewhere on the 1901 census.
Nothing definite in Civil marriage or death records for Ireland either.
One possible on Ancestry family trees for Catherine(birth and death dates correct plus married to an Edmonson) has been ruled out as the person they are looking for.

Any help or ideas most appreciated.

If this person is a sister of their grandmother this leaves two grandmothers, one on Paternal one Maternal line.

Is there no indication on front or back of photo as to where it might have been taken? If you post a copy on the photo dating board the experts there will likely be able to give a good indication of the date.
