Mary Carty is buried in Aughnacliffe RC under a stone erected by Thomas, no record of him being there. He may be buried in another cemetry, or even may have been C of I, and could be accross the road in St Thomas’ but search of online inscriptions of that cemetry does not show anything.

Had one daughter, Margaret, as well as John, who we know from the Sean Mac Eoin picture as “The Man with the Beard”
Her family we have a complete blank on.
