Notes:

1. Bridget O'Donnell, visitor, is a dau of John O'Donnell and Mary Gallagher, Carrickatimpan - see Carrickatimpan census

2. Bridget's father John O'Donnell, was a son of Dan O'Donnell and Margery Gallagher of Carrickatimpan

3. Dan O'Donnell was the landholder for this plot until 1893 - could he be Edward and Annie's father or other close relative? Uncle?

4. Connected through baptisms/marriages and land holdings - Edward b abt 1853 & Annie abt 1866 (Drumnasharragh), Mary (Ardachrin - not sister of Dan for sure) abt 1845 - Bernard (Carrickatimpan)

b abt 1836 Michael b ? and Dan (Carrickatimpan) b 1839 - all siblings/cousins possibly?

5. Edward and Anne appear to be the godparents of Dan's dau Hanora, b 1883 - must be a close family tie

6. Mary Gallagher, niece, appears to be dau of Charles Gallagher and Mary O'Donnell, Ardachrin - see Ardachrin census

7.  If they are the parents of the niece, then the mother, Mary O'Donnell, is Edward and Annie's sister

8. Grace Gallagher, servant, is dau of Charles Gallagher and Mary O'Donnell, Ardachrin - see Ardachrin census

9. O'Donnell births in Drumnasharragh - parents James O'Donnell and Grace McFadden -  

- John b 12 Oct 1873
- Mary b 29 Nov 1875
- Dan b 20 Oct 1877
- Patrick b 10 April 1880

10. See Drumnasharragh Valuation cross-reference for progression of the landholders - either there were two Daniel O'Donnells or just the one, which appears to be the case.

11. Edward died a few months after the 1911 census, on 17 Aug 1911. His effects totaled 28 pounds and probate was granted to John McConnell, farmer
