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 Ancestry.com 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.
