There is a Gertrude Gordon listed (along with a Maude Gordon) in the 1911 census of Ireland as a 13-year-old student at Loreto Convent boarding school in Dalkey, Co. Dublin. I believe it is likely that the Gertrude at Loreto is our Gertie above.

The grave of Gertie and her husband, Dan, in Deansgrange Cemetery is quite close to that of Gertie's sisters Ethel, Laura, Freda and Ivy who are all buried together.

Gertrude married Daniel (Dan) A. HEGARTY in 1927 in Dublin. Daniel was born in 1885 in Cork City. He died in 1953. He was buried in Deansgrange Cemetery, Dublin.

A death notice in the Irish Independent archives tells us that a Mary Kate Twohey, née Gordon, died at her residence in Loughglynn on 25 March 1958. The date dies in with the year of death (1958) that I was given for our Kate by a family source, and Loughglynn is close to our Kate's home parish of Fairymount. I am therefore of the opinion that Mary Kate Twohey is our Kate above.
