As you know Mary Hanlon married Patrick Keefe in 1833 in Paulstown Co. Kilkenny. I am looking for her siblings. The method I am using is somewhat of a brute force method in that I am searching Kilkenny for all Hanlons in the 1830s and earlier. My thought is that if she does have a sibling I might be able to find them by locating her nieces and nephews. My guess is that her nieces and nephews would be born also in Paulstown between 1820-1845. The low range is if she is the youngest in her family and the high range if she is the oldest in her family.
The following are female Hanlons that had children during that time. What makes this slightly difficult is that the woman’s maiden name is not always on the birth certificate.
