Yes, I think my Grand Aunt Mary was Born around then. My grandmother was born in 1916 & was the second eldest & mary "raised her" (& the others) after their mother died

1901 census, Co Louth, Rathcor, Ballynamaghery - House number 10 - surname given as Oakes
Yes, that looks like them. Thanks.

That works out too. I was looking in the wrong place altogether

Oakes household Ballynamaghery townland - 1901

Oakes household Csatlecarragh townland - 1911
Oooohhh... Where did you get James's death from ?

That's them. Thank you.

Guys, you're awesome. Thanks for solving that. Is there any way to get more info about James - Wife, parents etc or sometimes is that as good as we get ?

The likely death I mentioned for James is this one from the BMD Index - might be worth following up to to see is any additional family are mentioned besides the two you already know about :

Name: James Oakes
Event Type: Death
Quarter & Year: Apr - Jun 1901
Registration District: Dundalk
Reported Age: 70 (est. year of birth 1831)
Volume : 2 / Page : 639

I think the next step would be to try to find births/baptisms for either or both of the children, maybe try certs for a few of those extracted birth records, not just those name Thomas or Anne, to see if a familiar location (Castlecarragh, Ballynamaghery or somewhere nearby) or father occupation of Carpenter or similar shows up.

Another approach might be a search for a death for 'Mary'. There are a number of Oakes/Oaks deaths before 1901 in the same area (Dundalk district) for females of about the right age, but no Mary that I saw

p.s. forgot to mention, the two townlands mentioned for the family on the census are both in the same area in the south of the Cooley Peninsula, so the first parish to check is Cooley RC parish aka Carlingford South.
