I am looking for information about my great-great grandmother Ann Purcell. She was born about 1836 in Enniskeen, Co. Cork, Ireland. She lived in Bandon, Co. Cork before marrying Jonathan Wigmore Sherlock in 1857. They had 10 children and moved to New Zealand and later the U.S.
A family story has it that she was a relation of John Baptist Purcell (1800-83), archbishop of Cincinnati. But nothing more is known about her ancestry.
Any assistance is appreciated.
