Hi again,

I forgot to ask you if the second marriage entry showed Samuel as a widower or not???

Cheers,

Hi again,

I see several Sarah Hughes marriages in same CoI church.

Perhaps it is to your advantage to check them with this church to see if there is any marriage with the father named Edward the butcher/cattle dealer?

If you find one, then you know it was her.

What do you think??

OR you can try this UFH-www.ancestryireland.com and go to marriage database (do not mind about the maintenance as it works just fine)--purchase the basket of all Sarah Hughes marriages and see if there is any Edward being noted as father on them bar her marriage to Samuel Mahood in 1882. All Sarah Hughes marriages would be bought for only 6 pounds. Then, you have five picks to be made.

It is much quicker way to eliminate. If you could not find her, she may have went somewhere else--Scotland or England or somewhere in the world.

Are you descended from the first marriage?

Kind regards,

Tees

Hi again,

Do you have Samuel's birth registration info? If not, who was his father?

I found one Mahood birth with his name but has a surname as a middle name.

Wondering if it is yours.

Cheers,

Tees

I have looked up Slaters directory (1881 I think) and tghere is an Edward Hughes and John Hughes, both butchers, both in Richhill.

I went on ancestryireland a while ago - I've used it lots and found it v helpful.  At the time I was looking for a Sarah Hughes with John as the father (the other Sarah - sorry to confuse you further!).  I'm actually descended from Edward's brother John, who also had a daughter called Sarah.  She was my GGrandmother.  I'm fascinated with her because my grandmother (also called Sarah!!) was very secretive about her childhood, never spoke about it, and her children - my dad and my aunts, never knew any of their uncles or aunts from her side of the family.  It has me really intrigued.  My aunt, who is in her late 70s, seems convinced that there's a scandal to be found somewhere along the way and I don't want to disappoint her!  Trying to find any records on any of these Hughes is proving a real challenge.

I will go back through my files and hunt down the options for Sarah with a father Edward and check those out. 

Yes Samuel was listed as a widower on his second marriage.  His father was also called Samuel, and he was a publican or vintner.  Samuel was born c. 1861.

You are so kind Tees - thanks for all your help!

Saw a John Hughes marriage entry in Richhill.

Well, have you looked up in old newspapers between 1883 to 1887 to see if there is any obits on Sarah Mahood?

It seems to be very intriguing "story" about your other Sarah! :)

Some people are secretive about their families--in my case, my grandad did not talk about his family because of a terrible childhood and my granny would not talk about her family because she cannot stand them.  ???

You have looked up in the directory but beyond 1881? Sometimes it can help you narrow down to when they passed on.

I wish you the best of luck and every success in finding this Sarah Mahood! Do keep us posted so we can know what really happened to her.


Kind regards,

Tees

Hi Jaylay,

Here is the marriage registration:

13 Jan 1867 John Hughes married Mary Morrisson in the Richhill Roman Church in the parish of Kilmore, district of Armagh, Co Armagh.

This is the marriage I was referring to.

Kind regards,

Tees
