    I was just browsing for info re my 4X Gt Grandma Ann(ie) Henderson 1801 - 1863 ? Only info I really have is from 1851 census which states that she was born Cootehill, Cavan.
    Google gave me a site for Irish newspapers around the time of her death. I thought there might be some mention of her death although she had by now been living in England for some time. However first glances brought up reports of court appearances for some "Hendersons" surely I can't be related to those ..........:)
    Anyway, I've not had time to peruse the newspaper reports on there yet but thought the site might be of interest to others researching Irish peeps.
    The site also has an index for a great many Irish Death Notices too.
    Apologies if it's already been covered but if so, a reminder can't help eh?

    The site is Irelandoldnews.com.

    Thanks Eve...off to check it out!
    Ahhh...have seen it before but had forgotten about it and there are new bits to read including an article about an 82 yr. old lady marrying an 84 year old pig vet and it was her 4th marriage and his 6th!
