 I think she has the photo of the 2 girls that's where it all started,looking for the marriage.Could that photo be of Gladys on her wedding day to Austin?

 Having exhausted every avenue I can think of,I told my friend what I'd found(with your help).She rejects all of it,she has no idea who Austin c Ayres is,which I can understand.She's adamant that her grandparents were married.This all started because she couldn't find a marriage for her granparents and I said that would help.I contacted registery offices in Canada but non of them had a marriage certificate for Marion and Gordon.It would be interesting to see the birth certificate for Verna Rutledge and the other children they had to see what it puts as parents and their marriage.
I have seen a birth certificate in Scotland where the parents weren't married but they inventented a marriage in England which no one was likely to check.
 I can only say that,I'm sure,with all your resourses,you would have found a marriage if there was one.
  I found Gordon Elliot Rutledge in the USA in 1920 so he couldn't have married that year!
 Thanks for all your help.

Thanks again for all the help.I think I said before that David Gunning was William's brother,he was also a shoemaker,as were his brothers,James and Thomas.William lived in Conlig,where he rented a large house.When he died he was in the workhouse in Ards,where he'd been for at least a year with dementia.I would think that Mary died before 1896 otherwise she might have cared for him at home? If she died in Conlig,I guess that comes under Ards or is it Bangor?
 Someone asked the last record of her being alive,she was alive in 1851 on the census.Her youngest child was born about 1860,I think that was Henry.He went to live in Glasgow.
  Where did someone find her marriage date to William? Marriages were recorded from 1845,I have one for another ancestor,so if they were married after that it should be available?
 I can't think of anything else that might help in finding Mary's death.

Am still searching for the year of Mary Gunning's death.I've tried several sites but none of them coincide.She must be registered as she definately died after registration became compulsory.

 Thank you for replying.Are you saying that the date of death I have for Mary's death,1896 is correct?How do I view it on line?
 I contacted Ards Council some years ago and I was given all the lairs owned by Gunnings,I don't know what I did with the print out. I tried to contact them today but it seemed impossible to find anything to do with the cemetery.I logged onto Billion Graves but didn't have any luck there.Is there nowhere else that has records for Movilla.If William and his wife are in a paupers grave there should still be a record of the burial

 Thanks again for all your help.When I applied for a death certificate for Mary,I based it on the entry on Ancestry,her death showing as 1896 but the Registery Office couldn't find it.She was born about 1820,she had at least 1 brother,Andrew,who was born 1822,he married a Jane Beggs,they are both buried in Movilla cemetry.To divert from Mary,her son,Thomas, who left his family in Scotland and went to New Zealand married again,commiting bigamy,he added Beggs to his name,which was his aunt's maiden name.
 William,as far as I know,is buried in Movilla,if his wife died before him I imagine they are together.If I could find the grave,the date of death would be on it.
  If I contact Ards council would they have a record of the grave?

 Thank you for all your help I still dont really know when Mary died.I think I said before that I had 1896 in Castlereagh but the registry office couldn't find her death then.Her husband was William Gunning who died in the workhouse in 1898.David that someone mentioned,was William's brother,also a shoemaker.I don't know where to look to be able to get a death certificate for Mary.

 My great x2 gran was Mary Gunning nee Snodden.Having recieved her husband's death certificate,I applied to the Registry Office for Mary's but it seems they are unable to find it.
  On Ancestry it gives her death as being in 1896 in Caslereagh aged 74 but on Geneaology Ireland it gives a Mary Gunning dying in 1879 in Newtownards at the age of 70.That age isn't really right but it could had been a mistake as the age of 60 would be fine.
 Please can anyone help me find her death date so I can order her death certificate which will also tell me her parent's names. Thank you
