After some challenges in reviewing the church registry found on this film for the Parish of Moynalty, Meath, plus almost losing the flash drive which contained all of my research, I let it set to cool off for a while. You never know what renewed interest and findings might arise from walking away for a while.
The film confirmed source documentation (proof really) of my great great grandmother's baptism. Ellen Maxwell is clearly indicated by her christening on March 22, 1846. Her father is Jo Maxwell and her mother is Judy Shaffrey. I was happy to quickly find this record. I am assuming that she was born just before her baptismal date and, yet, we will probably never really know her exact birth date. That is the case with most of the births from the early 1800s in Ireland for Catholics.
Below is the chart of Ellen's immediate family of whom I found in the church register.
