I have just read this post and decided to get in touch. My gt gt Grandmother was Ellen Shannon b. 1852 and she had a sister Catherine. Ellen's daughter Mary Ellen was born 1876 and baptised in Kilmovee chapel. She moved to Bacup and married John Moran then had my Grandmother in 1897 in Bacup.
On the 1911 English census John Moran states his place of birth as Kilkelly so I am thinking there might be a connection
