13. Mystery Monday: Where was Nessie?

     Esther O'Neill, or Nessie to the family, was born in County Carlow and came to Ohio with Hugh and her siblings. A hashmark on the 1820 census probably put her in Hugh's family then. Nessie never married and died in Marietta, Ohio, in 1878. She was buried at Beverly, Washington County, near her sister Julia Craig.
     I have not been able to find Nessie between 1820 and 1878, so the mystery is: Where was Esther for 48 years? Anyone know the answer to this family question?
