I don't have any specific information for you, but my g-grandmother was Margaret Gilbane, also from that area. I have learned that the names Kilbane and Gilbane are interchangable. I know nothing about Mortimer. Good luck with your research!
: Anyone have any links or info? My greatgrandmother came from Carrick on Shannon In Leitrim. She told many stories of growing up there her name was Jane Mortimer and her mother was Kilbane.Born aabout 1850-1857and She emigrated about 1865-1875? Came to NY and settled in NJ All my research seems to turn up absoluetly nothing on either name in Leitrim Any help would be apprceiated, Thanks
