This is SPOOKY Ireland.

Just hit the 1851 census, and found my maternal G.G.Grandfather William Burgess, and came upon an entry that gave me the shivers.

There was a servant at the same household with the name of Mary Sharkers(Sharkey?), who was born in Roscommon in Ireland.
I don't know if this is the town or county she was born in.

In my profile, if you've looked, you will see that I moved to Ireland a few years ago, and I am living 20 minutes drive from Roscommon town.

Is that spooky or what.
