We know that she has a cousin Edward O'Brien (#23020) born circa 1855 in Ireland. He may well be the son of an uncle who is a brother of her mother, Ellena O'Brien.

Brigid also has a niece Mary Power (#23008) born about 1865 also in Dungarvan, Waterford, Ireland. She may be the daughter of a brother of her father Thomas Power.

Of course, Mary may be the wife of a nephew being the son of her husband Thomas Power's brother. Hard to say at this stage.
