Thank you dathai. That is interesting. I had not copped that fact. It is some years since I have looked them up on the census (and my data base is lost!!!). She is only living in two rooms but may have had an interest in other property. Her brother Richard was at this time married. He did not have children. He also had some means because family lore has it he was very supportive of my mother's family when my grandfather (whom he had reared) died so young and left seven young children.
I might have posted this fact before but some years ago I literally stumbled on the Conway grave when I took the wrong route in the graveyard and since then I feel there is a story to be unveiled about the Conways. Ha ha I should be writing novels!

It's quite possible Elizabeth Conway died elsewhere

OP,

Check out this death on ScotlandsPeople- https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

CONWAY ELIZABETH    72     1930     644/5 73     Garngadhill

It's out by a couple of years compared with 1901 Ireland census.

This death for Elizabeth Conway is recorded also for Elizabeth O'Kane 644/5/73 so not her I'm afraid

Thank you dathai for those two wills and details. For years I have been meaning to get a copy of the 1938 one for Richard. The story is that he left each of my mother's brothers and sisters one hundred pound which was untold wealth for them. They all had menial jobs at the time. On the gravestone at Deansgrange William is described as Gentleman which I feel is a little pretentious.
