Louth / James Mathews 1869 Blackrock, Louth, Ireland
« on: Wednesday 06 August 14 05:49 BST (UK)  »
My great great grandfather is listed in our family bible as being James Mathews, born 29 Mar 1869 in Blackrock, Dundalk, Ireland. He married Mary (unknown surname) born 7 Apr 1869 in Blackrock... they were married 5 Nov 1888 in Haggardstown.

I have them as having 3 children --

Annie Mathews born 5 Oct 1889 in Birkenhead England (who married William Loftus at Redhill Surrey England on 1 Nov 1910)

John Mathews born and died in Liverpool (no dates in bible)

James Mathews born 29 May 1892 and died 18 July 1900 in Liverpool.

I found record that James then married Margaret White in the April May June 1909 register in Toxeth Park. They then traveled to San Francisco, CA USA where they had my great grandma Margaret Mary Josephine Mathews on 1 Apr 1915 and Desmond James Mathews on 11 Nov 1918.

James died in San Francisco on 29 May 1930 and Margaret died after him...

The problem is that I am unable to find any info on either of their parents... I have no names and no living relatives that know... I believe my aunt may have more info (she has the family bible) but she is unwilling to look and it took me YEARS before she would even pull the bible out to give me the info... I am going to order a copy of the marriage cert in hopes that (a) they even still have it and (b) it will list parent names... anyone out there that has my missing link?
