Ellen Kehoe was from County Laois (then known as Queen’s County) in Ireland. After she married Edward Brennan, they lived in Clonbrock, Laois.

While looking at records of the family in this area on the border of Laois and Kilkenny, I became confused about where the places were exactly. A good website to help unravel the maze of Irish placenames and their relationships is here – https://www.townlands.ie/en/search/.

At the time of the 1901 census, Ellen was living with her married daughter Bridget and her family in Cloneen, Kilkenny.

Ellen died in 1908.
