Compeller's Notes:
Parents: Felix McCormack and Katherine Walker are often given as her parents, but I can find no documentation to that effect. However, Felix and Katherine settled in Canada and had a son, William, there before Ellen's birth. Ellen was born in Ireland, so unless they returned (why would you go back in the midst of a famine), they are clearly not Ellen's parents.
