  General Notes:

The 1881 census for Shotts recorded Jane Connor living with her husband and children in 43 Omoa Square, Cleland. Her children, three daughters and one son since her eldest child, Michael was now married, were aged between 20 and 10 years. There was only one room which was windowed in the family's home. Jane was recorded as 39 years old and born in Ireland.

When Jane McDonnell died in 1885, her death certificate recorded her as 'married to Michael O'Connor coalminer'. Her recorded age at death was 51 years. Both of her parents were deceased. 3

  Research Notes:


There is some discrepancy in Jane's age: in the 1881 census she was recorded as 39 years old, and in 1885 her death certificate recorded her as 51 years old. 3

  Medical Notes:

James Duncan MB CM certified the cause of death.

Jane's son, Michael O'Connor, who was present where his mother's death occurred, gave notice of her death before the registrar, William Spence, at Cleland on 15 August 1885. Michael O'Connor's address was noted as Brick Building, Omoa Square. 2
