Re: Family Name Geogheghan-

Dear Jean-

Thank you! Yes, my GG grandmother was Elizabeth Geogheghan. We, too, believe that Ursula Agnes was her daughter, not "niece" as may have been thought. It seems she was born (illegitimately) in Ireland and then went to live in a convent on the IOM. The suspicion is that Elizabeth became pregnant with a local (Irish) priest, thus the secrecy of her birth. We believe Ursula lived at a convent on the IOM for roughly 10 years. She was then "sent for" when her mother, Elizabeth, had more children. We'd be happy to receive the census information you have. We appreciate your reply. Warmly-Brenda
