Think William and Catharine Corbitt must have died between 1881 and 1891 census but I did not find any death registratons for them.

Michael Corbitt married Mary Lynch 10 June 1874 Carleton.

This is James' death but hs mother is listed as Catharine, not Mary as given on his marriage registration. Daughter was informant and I checked her marriage to McKivett and her parents were listed as James Farrell and Ann Corbitt.

James Farrell, 88, widower, retired, s/o Peter Farrell and Catharine McGuire both b Ireland, died 24 May 1938 of nephritis/odema of lungs, informant: Mrs Michael McKivett,daughter, of Almonte. Burial: RC Cemetery at Almonte, Registration # 021097.

Did not find death registration for Anne.

A Peter Farrell died March 1871, aged 57, b Ireland, Roman Catholic but his widow was Bridget.

The RC cemetery at Almonte is online at this site:

Ann Corbett, died 21 Aug 1933, aged 83, wife of James Farrell.
They are in Secion 9.
