Mystery Monday: Mary Kilpatrick Still

Mary Kilpatrick Still is my great grandmother and is hard to find information on since she was not here all that long.

12 November 1887 - born in Ireland (as per Chester County marriage records)
1907 - Immigrated (as per 1910 Census)
5 June 1909 - Married Pierson George Still in Mortonville (as per Chester County records)
1909 - 1st child Margaret Nora Still born (appears on 1910 census but did die in infancy)
5 September 1910 - 2nd child James Franklin Still born
1912 - 3rd child Dorothy born
1913 - Dorothy dies of whooping cough
24 March 1914 - 4th child (my grandfather) Lloyd Pierson Still born
17 February 1916 - died in childbirth (child stillborn)
February 1916 - buried at Doe Run Presbyterian Cemetery in East Fallowfield, Chester County, PA

My "Mystery" is where exactly Mary Kilpatrick was born. I had been told County Mayo but have not found any documentation to prove or disprove that.

I also am still searching for immigration information. I have searched through Ancestry.com as well as the website for Ellis Island. It is possible she came into Philadelphia instead of New York. Her sisters worked in Philadelphia and in fact she was workingon the Main Line when she and Pierson met. He was a blacksmith and came to do work for the family she worked for at the time.
Locations listed are located in Pennsylvania (USA), unless otherwise noted in post.
