Henry Gilbourne and Margaret McEvoy

This family is anomalous in that all the known events took place in a Roman Catholic Church. It is not clear whether Henry was catholic, but Ellen's marriage record in the Maryborough (Portlaoise) 'Liber Matriminiorum' (Marriage Book) refers to here parents as Henry Gi(0bourne & Margaret McEvoy rather that Henry & Margaret Gilbourne, which is taken to mean her parents had not married.Ellen in 1901 was a widow living Kilcolmanbane, Maryborough. Her age of 55 indicates ahe was born about 1846. Living with her was a nephew, Joseph Keegan.

Joseph was the son of Patrick Keegan and Mary Gilbourne, who had married in Mountmellick 10 June 1967. Their marrige record contains no reference to parents, but it would seem likely that Mary is Ellen's sister.
It is not clear which Henry i their father. The only one would seem to be the son of James Gilbourne and Mary Senior, of Ballylusk, though it is not certain he was still in Ireland, or if he was still in Ireland, whether he was still living.(Tree 6c)
