Bortells of Maryland--Mary Anne Burke Conry

I am the great great grandson of Mary Anne Burke Conry, 1847 -1924, the daughter of Patrick Burke and his wife Catherine Moran. While reviewing her will she left her cousin, Rev T H Bortell 100.00. On further research, through census records, he was the son Kaleb and Bridget Bortell. Do you know the maiden name of Bridget? According to the obituary of Mary Anne Burke Conry, she came to the USA at the age of 3 with her aunt and rejoined her mother and mother. She resided on a plantation in Maryland previous and during the Civil War.
I remember my great aunt speaking of the Bortell plantation in Maryland, but in vague terms.

Hi Shannon:

Hi Shannon!
Thank you so much for visiting my great great grandmother's memorial. It means so much to me when sweet folks like you leave flowers for her...especially when she doesn't even have a grave and we don't know too much about her.
Thanks so so so much!

I was wondering if you mind transferring him to me. My father was named after him as was I. Thank you for the work you have done for him. Roy
