Do you have proof that she was born in 1827? And from Cork. Ie could that date/detail be wrong?
There was a James CAHILL who was with the 54th Reg. and received permission
to remain in the Colony 17/10/1820
Then there is this entry in the Archives
DESCRIPTION MEMORIALS RECEIVED. JOHN CAHILL. APPLICATION TO REMAIN
and then there is this entry
Fort Beaufort Methodist
24 CAHILL John Henry
John and Enory?? Of 75th Reg
Could this be her father with the military connection with Joseph TYLER too?
Just a thought...
