Kathleen was the daughter of James P. Purcell and Kathleen Neylan. She lived with her family in a home her parents named Rhodesia House (also known as the New Quay House). Kathleen had one brother, James Andrew Purcell, who died in 1985. Kathleen married Patrick McNamara. Patrick died in 1980 and Kathleen died in 1996.
Kathleen is not family, but I loved the room in her picture. Was this inside Rhodesia House?
