Birth of Christopher KANE in 1892. I hope someone can read his mother's maiden name, because I am not sure. Maybe Mc Mahon?

slight white lie in 1901 for marriage of Arthur Connor and Anne Waters. They didn't marry until 1902! and the boy Reilly in the census is Anne's son by her first marriage

I'm not sure if this is Arthur's death or not. Age is 10 years out, but Son is Arthur, and Navan, so think it might be. Arthur Connor (or O'Connor as in this death) does not seem to be a common name.

Thank you so so much! I'm so glad i asked for help, you have helped me so much, i am very very grateful.
It's lovely to find where our relatives came from but also sad at the same time, especially now knowing that my great-grandad John Connor's mum died when he was younger, and poor Arthur, who would be my great-great-grandad (wow!!) losing his wife :(
My dad's mum was called Bridget O'Connor and married James Cunningham, my dad's name is Thomas James Cunningham, so you are absolutely spot on!
I have found it hard trying to talk to my dad and showing him everything, as he gets very emotional, especially about his granny Mary Kane. My dad said she absolutely hated him but was lovely to his brothers and sisters :(
I also got told by my uncle that when they were little, he remembers going to a home called Father Hudson with my auntie ann, my dad and my uncle Seamus, but they never found out why.
My dad loved his grandad very much. He did tell my mum years ago, that all his mum and dad did was drink and fight alot and they were very scruffy, which we found really sad to hear, maybe that's why he doesn't like talking about growing up?
I just can't thank you enough
Hope to hear from you soon
From Lisa
