As its probably not the right family, as Marcella had to have been born at least in the 1830-1840’s as Eliza was born in 1862. What struck an interest to me was that you listed a Patrick Meaney. Eliza’s obituary listed a Meaney (cousin). Not sure if this helps at all?
The death occurred at her residence, Whitechurch, New Ross on Sunday, 2nd inst., of Mrs. Elizabeth Cleary, relict (??) of the late Patrick Cleary, an extensive farmer, well known in public and sporting life, and a member of widely connected and very popular family. The deceased, who posessed many intellectual gifts, was connected with well know families in the counties of Wexford and Kilkenny. She was sister-in-law of the late Right Rev. Monsingor (sp?) Cleary, P.P. of Petaluma, California who returned to his native place near Raheen, Adamstown some twenty -five years ago where he died. She was also a cousin of Rev. J. Meaney C.C. Kilkenny. Many members of the families of both herself and her husband have been well known in the public, professional and commercial life. She was held in great esteem by all classes and creeds. She passed away after receiving the last rites of Holy Church with exemplary resignation and religious fervour. Her family have been the recipients of the deepest sympathy. The funeral to Whitechurch Cemetary on Tuesday after Office and High Mass in Ballykelly Church was attended by a huge gathering of people from the New Ross, Ennniscorthy, Wexford and Kilkenny districts.
The chief mourners were - Mssrs. Walter, Simon, Willie and Philip Cleary (sons), Mrs. L. Roban, Enniscorthy (daughter), Mrs P. Cleary, Whitechurs; Mrs. W.

Could this be the same Barron family from The Rower?
