Death[2]

Margaret Reid was baptised on 28th July 1844 at Carlow in County Carlow. She is the eldest known child of a mason and bricklayer named John Reid and his wife Julia Hanlon. The family moved around extensively, seemingly following where the railways were being built - they were probably only briefly living in Carlow, where the Greater Southern & Western Railway was under construction at the time of Margaret's birth. By the time her brother Michael was baptised in 1846, the family had left Carlow.

On 6th May 1872, aged 27, Margaret married a Richard Farrell. They went on to have ten children together between 1873 and 1887.

Both Margaret and Richard probably died between 1887 and 1901 - several of their children appear living together in the 1901 census, but there is no sign of the parents, suggesting that the parents had died and the eldest sister was left looking after her younger siblings.
