  • Any other info? Who did she marry? Did she stay in Ireland or emigrate? Who were her children? When did she die?

  • There are many trees showing Unity and parents.  I'm not sure if all the info is documented. The ones I looked at said she married Thomas Brooks in Scotland. He died in 1849 and a year later she married Peter Stark in Scotland.

  • She came to Scotland and appears to have had 2 children born in Greenock. 

    James and Eliza, it appears that Eliza died young.

    Fathers name Thomas Brooks...possibly in the army in Ireland

    I have census records ,  death records and information from her sons poor relief records but not a definitive place in Ireland that I can connect her with.

    Thank you
