I'm not too sure yet.  I saved the record, but as I am looking for Sarah, and this one was Sally, I don't know what to think.  Per your explanation, should I try just "S"?

Thanks for helping.  I will post again soon!

If its definitely Sarah then maybe its not the correct family.
Think Sally is a derivation of Sarah though?

Know in my own family and others I have looked at ,people weren't as exact or fussy as to what exactly was on the official record in the 19th century and even well into this one.
For example my gran used both Ellen and Eileen as her christian name whilst interchanging Mary and Maria as her second name whilst also using or dropping the "O" abbreviation in her surname.My other gran was born Mcdonnell but used Mcdonald in latter years.

Thanks Annie!

 I am pretty excited tonight. It looks as though I may have found my grandfather's paternal townland! I am nearly certain that the "Sally" is Sarah.  As a matter of fact, I found another child born to Thomas and Sarah that actually has the name Sarah as mother, instead of Sally!

Although I still don't know where Patrick married Anna O'Brien, I found an Ann Brien, baptized in the same parish (Borris) as Patrick McDonald.  They may even have the same address. Patrick's parents are at Rahana, and Anna's are at Raheen. Could this just be a transcription error?

The first names of both sets of parents on the baptisms agree with first names given on both Patrick's and Anna's death records in Fall River, Mass.

Thanks everyone for the invaluable pointers and tips.  If ever you need a lookup on the South Shore of Massachusetts, let me know!  I also have access to the archives in Boston.

Hi Annie,
That tree is either mine or my cousin's. We collaborate.  The 1887 marriage is Patrick's 2nd.  Anna O'Brien died in 1881.  Interesting about the Peter and Ann in Cambridge. I have definitely checked it.  I'll have to go back and look, but I think I found this couple on later censae, still in Cambridge.
Thanks again!

Certainly confusing...................date for 2nd marriage but naming his 1st wife as spouse?

I only "highlighted, copied & pasted" the info. ???
