[2] All children of hers

[5] Edith Eileen GILMORE 1890-1977 married RYDER. Niece of Elizabeth BROWN. Daughter of Sarah JACKSON (sister of Elizabeth JACKSON) & Eliezer GILMORE
[6] Sarah GILMORE (1848-1942), sister of Elizabeth BROWN, both née JACKSON. Sarah's husband Eliezer GILMORE died in 1919 - after her sister Elizabeth's will was written, but before it was probated. After Sarah's husband Eliezer died, their son David GILMORE inherited their farm and home at Liscalgot. He was difficult to live with, and so Sarah & her daughter Edith Eileen GILMORE moved to Dublin. William Scott McBRIDE (1908-1984) and Mary Francis McBRIDE aka Marito (1909-1931) went to school there. Edith Eileen McBride (1920-) attended kindergarden there. Glenesk was in Sandymount.

[7] Eliza Jane KENNEDY. The only one I have in my tree data would be too old.
