from Chronicle

Mrs. Kilderry, who died recently at Lancelot, was a resident of that district for over 40 years,. She was the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James O'Callighan, of Ballyvaughan, County Clare. She arrived in the ship Joseph Rowan in 1854, and went to reside with her sister at Gumeracha. She married Mr. Patrick Kilderry, who owned land near Marrabel, in 1857, and six years later went, with her husband, to Maunanarie. Some years later the family took up land at Lancelot, east of Peterborough. Here Mrs. Kilderry lost her husband and son within a short period of each other, and her eldest daughter a few years later.
