    Margaret Keaveney (Nee Rodgers) Age 73

    She was married to Patrick Keaveney - possibly a brother to Michael.

    Patrick Keaveny and Margaret Keaveny ( Nee Rodgers) had the following issue in Spring Gardens:

    19/01/1868 Bridget 

    24/01/1869 John

    24/04/1870 Mary

    22/10/1871 Michael

    05/07/1874 Margaret

    29/07/1878 Rose

    This is the link to the Marriage Date 28/02/1867 of Patrick (Age 27) (born c.1840) to Margaret - Note his father is also noted as Michael Keaveny of Spring Gardens

    His wife Margaret is noted as being the daughter Age 25 of Patrick Rodgers Age 25 of Pollanarroo (a nearby townland).

    The Records for Kiltullagh Parish commenced November 1839. So possibly No record for Patrick's Birth.

    However there is a record for a Rose Keaveny born 15/09/1841 in Lowberry (Some areas of Spring Gardens may be referred to a Lowberry road or just Lowberry.)

    This Rose was born to a Michael Keaveny and Mary Doud. Note the name - Rose carried down in Patrick's family - who is possibly a brother of Michael.…

    My Query, Would it be possible that he may have been 16 or 17 years older that what you have noted?
