The mc may have been left off by census takers also. I know in the case of the O'Leary's (The chicago fire's O'Leary's ...) They are listed in the census as Leary.
I have found many census taker errors over the years. My grandma is listed as gertrude when her name was really Geraldine, mispellings, etc.

>Many thanks for that, I do appreciate your help. Rose's personal details fit, her age (she was baptised in 1872) and being born in Ireland. Of her children, only one, youngest brother Joseph, bore the name of either parents or any of her seven siblings; this does raise some doubt in my mind. However, it is a lead and a good one. Thank you for taking the time to assist me.
