(Mother) Will28 January 1895Flossie Rorke, daughter of Michael and Mary Ellen (Dillon) Rorke, was named in the will of her great grandfather, Patrick Trears, dated 28 January 1895 at Ballymoe, County Galway. The Tuam District Registry's copy was prepared without paragraphs, so we have taken the liberty of separating the thoughts where we thought appropriate for ease of reading. We have not modified any spelling or punctuation that we are aware of. Our transcription of the registry's copy follows:

In the name of God Amen, I Patrick Trears of Ballymoe in the county of Galway Farmer, being at present of sound mind, and memory, and understanding do make and publish this my last will and testament revoking all other wills and testaments made by me.

I will and bequeath unto my daughter Bedelia Dillon my fee simple estate which I hold in my possession in Corrastoony Beg in the County Roscommon on conditions that she will send Flossie Rorke, my dear little child who is living with me at present, to a convent school and give her a good education, and on leaving school I would be very well pleased if she took her to live with herself.

Census Ireland 1901*1901Mary and Michael Rorke were enumerated on the 1901 census taken as of the night of 1901 in Lissadorn, County Roscommon, Ireland. Michael's age was recorded as 45 and his occupation was grazier, and Mary was recorded as 39 years of age, although she was actually about 43. Six of the couple's children resided with their parents in 1901. Albert was 18, Pauline 13, Nora 10, Douglas 8, John 5 and Hilda 3. Michael's brother, Patrick F. Rorke, was also enumerated in the household as a visitor. He was recorded as a commercial traveler and 35 years of age, although he was actually about 39. Two general servants, Patrick McDermott, age 33, and Kate Beirne, age 17, also resided in the household. Everyone in the Rorke household, with the exception of baby Hilda, could read and write and spoke both English and Irish.4
Census Ireland 1911*1911She was enumerated as Mary O'Rorke, and the head of her family, on the 1911 census in Lissadorn, County Roscommon. She was recorded as 50 years of age and married, although her husband Michael was not with her. She had been married for 30 years and had given birth to 9 children, 8 of whom were living. Three of her children resided with her in 1911, and were also enumerated with the surname O'Rorke. Leonora was 20 years of age, Douglas was 18 and a grazier, and Hilda was 12.

Where was her husband Michael? We may have identified him as the Michael Rorke who was reported to be 54 years of age, and a widower, working as a general labourer on Thomas Street, Merchant's Quay, Dublin. That Michael Rorke lived as a boarder in the household of Elizabeth Maxwell, a widow aged 52, who ran a dispensary. Mary Maxwell, age 22, and Francis Maxwell, age 19, also lived with their mother in 1911.

A second thought we have is that Michael may have been seriously ill by 1911 and have already been a patient in the mental hospital where he would die 6 years later. He may not have been enumerated at all. We are further confused by his wife's change of surname from Rorke to O'Rorke and wonder if it was a mistake of the census taker or a deliberate action by Mary Ellen or another member of the household who gave the information. When she was appointed his administrator in 1917, her surname was Rorke again.5
(Wife) Death7 February 1917Mary Ellen became a widow when Michael Rorke died on 7 February 1917 at age 60.6,1,7
Probate*24 December 1917 On 24 December 1917 at Tuam, County Galway, Mary Ellen Rorke was granted Administration of the estate of her deceased husband, Michael Rorke. He was identified as a farmer of Lissadorn, Elphin, County Roscommon, who had died on 7 February 1917. His effects were valued at £3,695 1s. 7d.8
Residence*12 September 1918When her son Albert completed his United States draft registration card on 12 September 1918 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he reported his mother, Mary Ellen O'Rorke, whose address was Beach Lawn, Monkstown, County Dublin, Ireland, as his nearest relative.9
Residence*September 1942Mary Ellen and her daughter Flossie were living together in September 1942 at 70 Tritonville Road, Sandymount, Dublin.10
Death*25 September 1942She died suddenly of heart failure on 25 September 1942 at 66 Waterloo Road, Dublin, at age 86. Her name on the certified registration of her death was Mary O'Rorke and her daughter Flossie, who was recorded as Florence O'Rorke and lived at the same address on Tritonville Road as her mother, was present at her death.10

Richard Dillon1

Marriage*He married Anne O'Flynn of Rathcroghan, County Roscommon, daughter of Luke O'Flynn.1
Religion*1793Richard Dillon of Rathmile, whose family was Roman Catholic, swore his loyalty to the English Crown or Church of Ireland in the County Court of Roscommon, in session at Castlerea, in 1793. The harsh Penal Laws of the 18th century restricted Irish Catholics from owning property or having businesses, and were designed to convert the Catholic population to the protestant Church of Ireland, or drive Catholic landowners away from the lands their ancestors, in some cases, had owned for generations. Many Irish Catholics, like Richard, chose to either convert, at least legally, to the Church of Ireland, or swear loyalty to the Crown in front of a court, in order to qualify for the rights they considered just.2

(Daughter) Census US 18505 November 1850Cynthia Ann was enumerated on the 1850 census taken on 5 November 1850 in the household of her recently widowed mother in Northampton, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She was 13 years old and attending school. Her future husband, Isaac Dungan, who had been widowed the previous year, was also enumerated in her mother's household in 1850. He had been left with two very young sons who were enumerated with their paternal grandparents that year.2
Marriage*She married, as his second wife, Isaac Dungan, son of Jesse Dungan and Adreanna Cornell.1
Census US 1860*12 June 1860Cynthia and Isaac Dungan were enumerated on the 1860 census taken on 12 June 1860 in Southampton, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Isaac was 38 years of age and a farmer, with real estate valued at $4,800 and a personal estate valued at $800, and Cynthia was 23 years of age. Isaac's younger son, Mahlon, from his previous marriage, resided with his father and stepmother in 1860. He was 13 years old and attending school. Also residing in the Dungan household that year was Elias Hollowell, who was 30 years of age, a miller, and had a personal estate valued at $800.5
Census US 1870*26 July 1870Cynthia and Isaac Dungan were enumerated on the 1870 census taken on 26 July 1870 in Southampton, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Isaac was 47 years of age and a farmer with real estate valued at $6,700 and a personal estate valued at $2,000, and Cynthia was 34 years of age and keeping house. Isaac's younger son from his first marriage, Mahlon, was enumerated with his father and stepmother. Mahlon was 23 years of age and a painter. Also enumerated with the family was Isaac and Cynthia's daughter, Sallie, who was 6 years old and attending school. The final member of the Dungan household in 1880 was Elizabeth Krewson, age 20 and born in Pennsylvania, who worked as a domestic servant. We wonder, what, if any, the relationship was between Mahlon Krewson Dungan and Elizabeth Krewson.4
