Kate Sophia Jennings was a twin daughter of Charles Jennings [abt 1818–1855] of Monaghan Street, Newry, and his wife Sophia Corley, daughter of Patrick Corley of Clones, County Monaghan. She and her twin sister Anna Maria were named after their grandmothers. Kate Sophia was called after her maternal grandmother Catherine O’Toole [abt 1747 – 1840].

She died on the 29th of August 1900 of an intestinal obstruction at 10 Great Denmark Street, Dublin, and is buried with other members of her family in Glasnevin Cemetery, Dublin.[3]
