Maria isnt showing on the 1891 census for 1891. There is a Owen Keelan boarder age 47 occ beamer living in the civil parish of Liff and Benvie town Dundee with a family called Reilly.

in 1901 Owen Keelan age 58 born Ireland occ (jute) power loom beamer is living the civil parish of Dundee. There is a Martha Letters age 44 housekeeper and 2 children Margaret Letters age 12 and Mary Letters age 2. Cant find Maria in 1901 either in Scotland.

Thank you so much Julie,

I'm not sure how common it was back in those days for names to be changed or altered and i suspect that Maria and Owen separated and went their separate ways. i'm intrigued with the family Owen lodged with the Reilly's and the Letters as he is buried in Dundee alongside two females with surnames reilly and letters

thanks again for your help
