Here is her death record, also from Ancestry. I have the image. I note that the father's name is wrong. I figure that Margaret was 81 at the time. Her son filled out the certificate and he probably got the name of his grandfather wrong. Margaret's mother name is correct - both surname and given name.

I have images of the birth registers for 13 of her 15 children. The first 6 were born in Boston, the 7th in Canada (which is how I located her siblings and parents) and the last 6 were born in Boston. I have 2 siblings that were not named in census records and I can't find their births/deaths. Can you imagine how many babies with the surname of Brown were born in Boston in the year 1888 for example? I looked through every baby with the surname of Brown born from 1871-1910 which is when census records stated she had 15 children. Could not find the last two!


I found Arthur's baptismal record on the Irish Family History Foundation webiste. Here is my transcription, I also have the original:

Arthur and his family are on the 1881 census. I have an image from Library and Archives Canada (http://www.collectionscanada.gc.ca/databases/census-1881). Here is my transcription:

I have one more possible child. Here is the 1871 census of Canada. I have an image of the original from Library and Archives Canada. Here's my transcription:

Page 17

Connolly, Mary, female, age 12 (implies born 1859), born in Ireland, Roman Catholic, Irish


I don't know if Mary is the daughter of Arthur (Sr) and Sarah McLoughlin. If Sarah really was born in 1811, then she would have been 48 when this child was born. But neither the census date or Sarah's birth date is reliable, so who knows??


I believe that's all the info I have on the Connolly family.
 
If there is anyone who can help AcadianJoan is her quest for the CONNOLLY's of Killyclogher, please do contact her.
