Lynne, If your family was in Upperchurch, their records would be
there. Earlier records were destroyed when the Four Courts in Dublin
was blown up and there are no other copies. They would not be in the
Thurles records. Ask TFHR for a single record search on the sister as
that is very inexpensive. Although they may have used the local
graveyard, they might be buried almost anywhere as people tended to
have a favorite family graveyard.

I have checked out the Tipperary Family History Research site but it appears the records for Upperchurch only start in 1829 which would be too late for the parents and possibly the siblings of Mary Burke. I know one of her sisters was born in 1832 but the dates available would make the search a bit hit and miss and the search fees are fairly steep. The Thurles records are earlier 1796-1900. Would the earlier records for people in the Upperchurch area ie before 1829 be in the Thurles records?
