Hi Daria

I think that this is as far as I can go with your family. I know very little on Irish genealogy, except that it's difficult  :-\

Edward and Catherine's marriage cert gives no more clues. The witnesses were a Hugh Quin and Rose Ann Cairns.

Good Luck

Regards

Cause of death - crushing of abdominal organs caused by a fall of slate - a few minutes. (RCE - buried at Uphall Cemetry

Informant - Hugh Rafferty, Brother in law- Old Town,  Broxburn. This person could well be married to a sister of Edward.

Just a note to Daria & Gadget.
I live just a short distance from all these places if it helps.

Hi James

Nice to see a friendly face  :D

I'm going to try and find the marriage of Hugh Rafferty and also check up on Catherine. I think the rest of the story is in Ireland  :)

Gadget.
              All my Reynolds family came from Ireland through The Calton a Gallowgate in Glasgow. It is possible Daria and I come from the same family, but it will be next week before I have time to look.

Nice to see another friendly face too.

James.

I'm sure Catherine must have married again:

1901 Niddry Rows, Kirkliston

667 ED 3 page 8

James O'hara, 36, shale miner, b. Glasgow
Catherine O'hara, 29, b. West Calder
Mary Ann O'hara, 11, b. Uphall, Linlithgow
James O'hara, 9, b. b. Uphall, linlithgow
Catherine O'hara, 7, b. Uphall, Linlithgow
Alice O'hara, 10 mths, b. Uphall

Mary Ann, James and Catherine could be Reynolds *

*added - they appear to be the same family - see later posting  :)



There's no sign of this family on the 1891 but SP is down at the moment so can't check on a marriage or births of children.

Hi again, James  :)

Is this your family:

Turning to Edward:

Interesting on the 1881

Store Row, West Calder:

701 ED 12 page 6

Patrick Reynolds, 50, General labourer, b. Ireland
Patrick. s, 24, limestone miner,  b. Ireland
Margaret,d, 20, housekeeper,  b. Ireland
John, s 18, limestone miner,  b. Ireland
Edward, s, 16, limestone miner,  b. Ireland
James, s, 12, b. Ireland
John Druggan, lodger,  40, General labourer, b. Ireland


No others that match up. It doesn't tie in with the marriage cert info but looks a strong possible  :-\

Gadget

Added - found the sister Margaret's marriage - different parents' names, so  maybe Edward didn't come over until after the 1881 census  :(

Gadget,
              You are working overtime here, by the time I get to look at my records, you will have it all wrapped up.
