Such great information and a willingness to contribute. Thank you.
I've found that Joseph and Susan (Beckett) McLean had 9 children. The youngest passed away at age 2. 
The 9 were recorded as:
William - 1880
Eliza - 1883 ( likely Elizabeth)
Matilda - 1885
Joseph- 1887
John- 1889
David- 1891
Robert Andrew- 1893
Arthur- 1899
I am a descendant of William. I am most interested in going back further to find out who Joseph senior's parents are and where he was born in 1836. I'm also interested in finding out more about Joseph senior's wife Susan Beckett. Where she was born ( approx 1856) and where and who her parents were.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Sheila

Owenwee had access to Martha Elizabets Baptisim somewhere so may have seen the marriage as well.

Parish/District Turlough 1879 Marriage

Joseph Mclean                               Susan Beckett
Turlough Full age                           Ballyguin     aged 20
Presbyterian                                  Presbyterian
Father William McLean Farmer        Father James Beckett
Witness Isacc and Agnes Beckett

Susan Beckett  bap Feb 1856 was the daughter of James Beckett and Elizabeth McAdam.
One of 11 children I find bap records for.

If you look at the Irish Census of 1901 in Ballyguin Turlough   James is listed as a widower with  his younger children, Elizabeth McAdam Beckett his wife  died 15th Dec 1896  you can view the death cert online, under Castlebar Dist, James Beckett died 19 Feb 1909 see online cert

The 9 children you mention of Joseph Mclean, Martha-Elizabeth she was also known as Elizabeth, the missing child from your list is James b 1881

If you do an engine search on Beckett Family Ballyguin  there are a few  Trees that have been compiled one is from the original poster of this thread.

 Turlough Parish/Dist

Marriage 12 Mar 1850

James Beckett                           Elizabeth McAdam
Miller Farmer age 24                   Address  Ballyguin
 Address Mohina
Father Isaac Beckett                    Father James McAdam
Miller Farmer                               Miller Farmer

Looks like James Beckett moved to his wifes Townland of Ballyguin, although both a William Beckett and a James McAdam appear in the Griffiths Val Lists in Ballyguin.
Mohina  will actually be the Townland of Moyhenna, Kildacommogh,  listed in Griffiths is Isaac Beckett.

Quote from another thread.... Ballyguin/Turlough/Castlebar/Mohina

Beckett was my maiden name too, but we were RC not Church of Ireland.  However I checked it up for some of these Becketts on their request.

The Becketts owned 3 mills in the area, and the ruins of one still stand near Parke.  Most lived in the Turlough area, but there were some in Spencer Street in Castlebar and a branch in Ballina, the last of who passed away approx 4 years ago.  - Frank Beckett.  In Ballina there are still some areas named after Becketts as they had a big business in the centre of town - Isacc Becketts.
