I found your tree on ancestry as I was trying to help, found same as you..possible Sarah Campbell..listed below from Marion
Thank you so much for your help ... the name has so many variants.  I did look in the Irish Genealogy Site, but had difficulty finding anything from the small amount of information I had.

Thank you so much for your help, as I said to Lori it is hard to ascertain the correct record with so many variants of the surname.  In the 1861 Census Bernard is documented as being born in Dublin and Sarah Newry, and I looked on the Irish Genealogy Site without success ... but I will continue to search smiley
