There are some issues with the above Ancestry trees:
The John Stapleton tree has a son
This is impossible given Catherine's age.
In fact the birth cert
shows he is son of a Nicholas Dunphy.
The trees have Catherine with a Fitzgerald child born 1855.
This is clearly impossible given the dates of her Dunphy marriage and children.
These can be explained away as errors.
It does look like Catherine Kickham had two marriages.
