I think annclare has answered this already but I'll add what I have found. My searches were through,,, and

Edmund Bunce married Margaret Fitzmaurice on 12/05/1811 in Ballyheigue R.C. Church. At the time, Ballyheigue was part of Causeway parish and remained so until the mid 1860's.

They had 8 children born in Doonamontane, Ballyheigue. They were born as follows:

Maurice b. 1812
Patrick b. 1813
Margaret b. 1816
Edmund b. 1819
Johanna b. 1820
Honora b. 1824
Thomas b. 1829
George b. 1832

Thomas married Mary Lucid on 24/02/1857 in Ballyheigue R.C. Church. On the same day, Thomas' sister Honora married George Lucid. Patrick Williams was witness to both marriages. I cannot prove that the two Lucids (George and Mary) were related but Thomas and Honora were brother and sister.

Their respective families were born as follows:
Thomas Bunce and Mary Lucid:

Patrick b. 1858 Doonamontane
Edward b. 1861 Doonamontane
Ellen b. 1862 Doonamontane
Timothy b. 1865 Doonamontane
Mary b. 1868 Doonamontane
Thomas b. 1872 Doonamontane
Philip b. 1876 Dirtane

George Lucid and Honora Bunce:

Ellen b. 1857 Doonamontane
John b. 1860 Doonamontane
Philip b. 1862 Doonamontane
Thomas b. 1865 Doonamontane
Edward b. 1868 Doonamontane

As you know, your g.g. grandmother was married to Michael O'Connor but the date of death I found for her was 30/03/1935 in Chicago. Her sister Mary was married to a Mr. Lynch and died in Chicago on 19/12/1916. I'm still searching for their families. Their younger brother Philip stayed at home and can be found on the 1901 and 1911 Irish Census living with his mother Mary (Lucid) in Dirtane, Ballyheigue. I cant find any trace of the other brothers. Their father Thomas Bunce died in 1891 and his wife Mary died in 1916. Philip died in 1946.

As for their cousin Philip Lucid (b. 1862) he married Kate Miller on 14/11/1910 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Both were listed as widower/widow so there's possibly another marriage there somewhere, only to find it. Philips parents are listed as George Lucid and "Mary Brunse" and he's from "BallyLage" Ireland. Kates parents are John Merrick and Julia Fisher so I'm guessing her maiden name was Merrick and not Miller which is probably the name from her first marriage.

Philips brother Edward (b. 1868) married Catherine Moriarty on 27/02/1900 in Ballyheigue R.C.Church. They had a daughter Mary b. 1900, Dirtane, Ballyheigue.
