Bridget Rabbitt was born in Co. Tyrone and I am almost certain she was born Bridget McSorley b. 1823 in Mullaghmore, Omagh, sister of Patrick McSorley. She spent over 40years of her life in the USA where I believe she married (hence the married name Rabbitt) and returned to Omagh around 1893 after her husband died. She is included in the 1901 Census Records living in a house belonging to her nephew James McSorley. James also registered her death in Omagh on 15th February 1908. Her obituary notice in the local press said she was 90years old, but her gravestone states 85years old.
Recent searches suggest that she may have left New York in 1895 but I dont known the name of her husband. If anyone can shed any light on this lady it would be much appreciated. We recently found her grave and she is buried with my wifes great-grandparents.
