Looking for information on DENEHY (Inquests)

Genes Reunited transcribes this record as DEVENE and Ancestry as DEUENE. Looking at the original I think Ancestry is probably right. Problem is that that this Ellen is recorded as being born in Cork, Ireland whereas the US data (thanks Jefff) places her birth firmly in Wales in around 1862. The 1871 Census gives the following possibility for Ellen,

1871 50 High St, Bedwellty Parish, Tredegar,

Cornelius O'CONNOR Head b.1828 Cork, Ireland, Labourer in a coke yard.
Hannah Wife b.1833 Cork, Ireland
Mary Daur b.1851 Cork, Ireland, Labourer in coke ovens
Patrick Son b.1854 Bedwellty, Mon. Labourer in iron works
Ellen Daur b.1861 Bedwellty, Mon. Scholar
Margaret Daur b.1871 Bedwellty, Mon.
Daniel CLOGAN Lodger b.1851 Milford, Cork, Labourer in iron works.

The same family can be traced in 1861 under the name CONNOR and at almost the same location.

Maybe this might match with your own information about Ellen O'CONNORS?

Since the emigration date seems almost certainly to have been well before 1891 I doubt the record could refer to Daniel DENEHY.
