Margaret Coughlan's will mentions a brother Thomas having bequethed her £200, however... The will of Thomas doesn't say that Margaret is his sister, it says "I bequeth £200 to Margaret Pigott wife of Robert Pigott of Ballanaguile Croagh, Limerick" This is a codicil to Thomas' original will and is witnessed by Michael A Pigott, Gentleman, Horsham. Update - on the death certificate of Thomas Coghlan the witness is Michael Pigott, Nephew, Horsham. Because Thomas Coghlan had only one nephew named Michael Pigott, the son of Margaret Coghlan, it is confirmed that Thomas and Margaret were siblings.
