marriage of Michael McEvoy around 1915
« on: Friday 06 November 15 11:24 GMT (UK) »
Trying to find marriage record for Michael McEvoy of Carlow (1882-1968) to Margaret (Kelly?) (1883?-1942?) so that I can get the fathers names. Their son Peter (1918-2003) was born in Carlow. There is a marriage in 1915 of a Michael McEvoy in Carlow but Margaret is not listed as a spouses name.  Have also looked in Kilkenny and Abbeyleix but n/t. Family info is that they were a Carlow family and would have stayed local to that area.

Have found a Michael McEvoy in 1901 census in Carlow  - (father Thomas) but his dob differs greatly from the 1911 entry and birth records so would like m/cert to confirm parentage.
Can anyone spot a marriage record?

Thanks - Rose H

Are you sure Margaret was from Carlow?Marriages usually take place in the brides parish so if she wasn't from Carlow in may be in another area.
There is one in 1913 in Kilkenny a Margaret Kelly

The 1915 one is a Kate Aughney

Hi There Rose

You have put a question mark beside Kelly.

Do you have Peter's birth cert to confirm that his mother's maiden name was in fact Kelly ?

. . . also . . .

Presuming that you have Peter's birth cert, can you give us his father Michael's occupation on it !?

The family told me they thought she was a Kelly (which is why I put ? as it wasn't 100% definite) but  haven't got b/cert yet  -(do have registration details of the 1918 birth).  Don't know how I missed seeing the 1913 marriage in Kilkenny.

Will order b/cert to confirm maiden name. Thanks

she may have been from Carlow
see Carlow,Castlecomber and Kilkenny registration Districts
might have been a borderline district

Hi, looking at the 1911 Irish census there are two other Michael McEvoy's in Carlow whose age is within reasonable limits for your Michael.

Ballywilliamroe,Ballymoon,Carlow

Michael McEvoy age: 24
living with his parents Michael & MaryAnn McEvoy & 2 siblings

and this (that peaked my interest)

Montgomery Street, Carlow Urban,Carlow

Michael McEvoy age:30
living with his brother Peter & Peter's wife Elizabeth. Maybe???

Hope one may be correct, Kim

Kim -thanks for your reply. Due to family bereavement I haven't done a follow up of the McEvoys but I did see the record of Michael living with his brother Peter and s-i-law and that would be the record I'd look at first as Peter is a name used in the current McEvoy family. Rose
