Where did Isabella Barr Greenwood get married? When and where was she born? Scotland?

The address is probably Garibaldi St. but not sure where, if at all, in Ireland this would be.

Hi,
   Have looked at several sources and the only reference I can find of Joseph Greenwood and Isabella Barr is by doing a parent search on the IGI and this gives three children, all born in the west of Scotland between 1863 and 1872.

Looks from 1881 census like Isabella Barr Greenwood was born c1878 so if you search on Scotland's People website her birth certificate should be there (may be registered as Isabella rather than Isabella Barr) and that will get date and place of parents' marriage. Then you can search for the marriage and get father's parents' names and work your way through other Scottish records to see if there is an Irish connection.

Lynda,
          Isabella Barr Greenwood was born in Muirkirk, Ayr on 8 April 1878. Her parents were Thomas Greenwood and Agnes Greenwood, nee Woodburn. Her father was a coal miner and the parents were married on 31 Dec 1875 in what looks like GALSTON.
          I am afraid that my earlier information was a red herring.

Lynda,
         The 3 children I found by doing a Parent search on the IGI were
David born 1863 in Tradeston, Glasgow
Sarah 1871 born Dalry Ayr
Joseph born 1872 Stevenston Ayr.
         These look fairly close to some of the names you found on the 1881 census.
