Bless you.heywood.No wonder gro couldnt find it.
You are amazing! Thank you.
I would never have found that.
How ever did you do it.?
Some of the  familyfamily were there at Mounterin in 1901...
Why did the registrar get the name so wrong as both parents could read ans write?

And thank you  Kiltglassen for the map.
That is what I have been looking for for so long.
I thought that being baptised at Lusmagh they would have been born there.

Thank you again Heywood for Gertrude.  I had her baptism .
Interesting !..present at the birth ,Mary Anne Keogh?
Gertrude went to Usa and married a william.
Her sister Emily went with her and married Patrick Thorpe  and died in 1934.one daughter,Kathleen.
My mother mentioned  a Mary Anne   but I haveno idea who she was.

Gertudes birth info at Clonra will help support the Bridget Kevy birth surely.

Spelling was originally Keough ( at Thomas Keough baptism in 1829.)
But I wonder will Kevy be acceptable  for Irish citizenship?
Kevy doesnt even sound like Keogh.
I can but try.

It is written in the same way 3 times on that birth certificate so I doubt it is a transcription error.
Bridget’s birth is the only Kevy recorded in Parsonstown records.
You have the parents and the baptism though so hopefully it will suffice.

Just to add that I checked baptisms to those parents, then looked for Gertrude and then for Bridget (no surname) in Parsonstown.

Thank you for all that help. Invaluable.

Sorry but have yet another query.
My Thomas Keogh and Mary Bennett had Elliza, baptised Lusmagh 25 Nov 1864. Sps. John Bennett an Ann Egan.

Elliza, Lizzy, is on the 1901  still with her parents and sisters Gertrude and Emily.

But there is a Margaret Keogh birth  Beannchar  ?Bannagher   Offally 4 Nov 1866 parents Thomas Keogh and Mary Bennett.
They lived at Clonra.

So did  my Thomas and Mary have twins  both born 4th Nov 1866 and   Margaret died?
And if she lived why wasnt she baptised at Lusmagh with Eliza?
And are there Bannagher baptisms on line somewhere please as I cannot find them.
Thankyou.

You have two different birth years there - 1864 and 1866

Here is Margaret’s birth

Maybe the family called her by a different name?
