DeathWilliam Diffley died on 11 Aug 1890 at Clooncarreen, Co Leitrim. A William Diffley was buried in Bornacoola. Unfortunately there appears to be no civil record of the death.
The absence, however, of the right man from the 1901 Census, coupled with a shortage of William Diffleys in general, leads me to believe this must be the death of the man in question.

BirthMarcella Diffley was born on 7 Jun 1869 at Clooncarreen, Mohill, Co Leitrim, Ireland.
MarriageMarcella Diffley married James Sheridan on 11 Nov 1897 at Bornacoola R.C. Church, Knockadrinan, Mohill, Co Leitrim, Ireland. Marcella's residence is given simply as Bornacoola on the Civil Record while the church record transcription gives Clooncageeher townland. But there is no such place, and it could be that somebody got mixed up between Clooncarne and Cloonageeher. In any event there is no other Marcella Diffley baptism, birth or marriage noted, so on balance I think it likely this is the correct woman.
The witnesses were James Loughan (?) and Ellie McGarry.
DeathMarcella Diffley died on 5 Mar 1944 at Corrinagh, Columbkille, Co Longford, Ireland, at age 74. The informant of her death was Michael Sheridan; no relationship is stated but it is possible it was her husband's eldest brother. She was survived by her widower James Sheridan.

Birth RegHer birth was registered on 4 Oct 1889. Marcella's birth was registered as the 4th October even though she was baptised on the previous 23rd September. It was registered by her father on the 24th October. The date was obviously entered incorrectly to avoid any possibility of being fined for a late registration.

The witnesses were Michael Diffley and Mollie Diffley. I suspect Michael Diffley was John Patrick's brother, while Mollie could have been his sister Mary Anne.
