Maria Kelleher born around 1854
« on: Thursday 03 June 21 23:26 BST (UK) »
Hello everyone
Can anyone help me locate the birth records for Maria Kelleher born in co cork  around 1854
I have found her in the 1901 irish cencus living in 25 shandon st with Humphrey Sullivan aged 90 , julia Kelleher aged 23 and john  Kelleher aged 25  are listed as stepdaughter and stepson both were born in cork city, Maria was also listed as stepdaughter but in the  1911 cencus they are listed as Maria's children, which is very confusing
Thanks

Can you explain what you know about the family?  Maria is recorded as a widow so KELLEHER should be her married surname.  There is a very large gap in age between Maria and the other two making it more likely that they are her children.  Details on the Irish census are frequently suspect.

There is a birth for a Julia KELLEHER at Shandon Street in 1877 , father Bartholomew, mother Maria KELLEHER formerly SULLIVAN.

Thank you so much for this, I suspect that Maria's husband is a cousin of my great grandfather,
Maria's marriage, Humphrey is her father.
