Event Note

The Valuation Revision Books for Parcels 6A, 6B, Ballincurry from 1915 to 1929 are confusing.
There are many dates and names and I can't match them up to tell when the land changed hands.
Bridget might have held the land from 1923 to 1925.
Dates: 1915, 1920, 1923 in pink, 1925

Based on the transactions in the Valuation Revision Books, and on Bridget's baptism date, I think this is her.
