Yelverton Wilson connection

Hi Jill,
"Backdoor to the Klondike" by Joan Weir, has the following on page 121, re 6th Viscount Avonmore . . . Late in August Avonmore took ill. He was moved from the Nuttall home in Tittour to a small private nursing hospital in nearby Dublin. On Sept 3 1910 Avonmore died of chlorea. Neither his wife nor his daughter was in attendance at his death, only a cousin George O'Keefe Wilson, who lived a few doors away from the hopital on North Frederick Street.
At this stage I don't have any info on the O'Keefe/Wilson tree to find the connection, but I would assume the Yelverton Wilson minister may come from this connection.
Also it appears the Archalls and Yelvertons were from the same district in Ireland. Perhaps we'll solve the mystery yet!
Regards, Deb
