I am trying to learn who Kate McCarthy was, the one who was age 57, a widow, living in Clodagh, Skibbereen, Cork, at the time of the 1901 Census. Her son John, age 15, wsa living there and her daughter Mary, age 19, was living there. Mary had some type of job in the school system.
In 1911 Kate was still in Clodagh her name spelled as MacCarthy in this census. The only person living there was Maurice Mahony, boarder. Maurice, who was 85 at the time, was my great-grandfather. I have never found the name of his 2nd wife's first husband but think it was Florence McCarthy. I am wondering if Kate has any connection to this family.
Is there anyone who has Kate in their family? I also have not been able to trace where John and Mary went. Since she was a widow in 1901, I don't know her husband's name so I can't find the marriage.
