However, William Keith's wife Eunice Leach was born, according to her noted age at death, about 1749 and Hepzibah (Washburn) Leach, who died in 1750, would have been in her mid to late 60s and probably past her child-bearing years by 1749.3

Catherine Kelly1

d. 1817
ChartsDescendants of John Hinds, including our Walters and Ralphs
Marriage*1790She married Ralph Hinds, son of Ralph Hinds and Esther Cannon.1
Death*1817She died in 1817 at Mulhussey Castle, County Meath, Ireland.1
(Mother) Court ActionIn the marriage settlement of Charlotte's and Mary Anne's mother, Catherine Kelly, to Ralph Hinds, there was a clause charging £1000 for each of the daughters on the Mulhussey property. After the death of Mary Anne, this money was recovered by Charlotte, who inherited her sister's portion. After the Court of Chancery directed that part of the property be sold, to pay this money, Charlotte bought land that had belonged to her father and was situated near Killeshandra in the townlands of Toberlyan and Mulrick.1
(Wife) Burial Following her father's death in 1843, Catherine's daughter, Charlotte, erected a monument at St. Jerome Cemetery in Dublin in her father's and sister's memory. It stands close to the entrance gate of the cemetery and is inscribed with the names of Ralph Hinds and Mary Anne Hinds. The date on the monument is not correct for Ralph's death, and may be the date that Catherine, Charlotte's mother, died in 1817 and/or the date of Mary Anne's death.1
