I wonder is this Ellen's marriage in 1904 LINK
The church record shows her from Glantane

This is the family in 1901 LINK

They had at least four children LINK
shown on census
c1903 Kate
Dec 05 1904 Edmond
May 01 1907 Mary
and
Sept 18 1911 William

The couple married on Jun 19 1904 and Edmond was born on Dec 05 1904
They show the daughter Kate as older
James is not shown as a widower on the marriage certificate

There is a baptism of a Catherine Holmes on Dec 03 1899 (slightly older)
of Sullivan Square, Mallow
No father's name but mother was Ellen Holmes and sponsor Margaret Sullivan
I cannot see her civil birth records

Thank you Dathai and My Luck. This has been extremely helpful. Dathai you gave me a link yesterday to civil records and mentioned that William of Fair Street might have the same parents. Looking at the link I can't see any mention of Fair Street and am wondering how you identified this entry as belonging to the Fair Street Holmes.

Dont know what if any connection
Next door to William Holmes is James Gray living with the Bartons
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Cork/Mallow_North_Urban/Fair_Street/1130233/

James Barton married Annie Flynn 1899

Annie Flynns parents seem to be the witnesses at William Holmes marriage
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Cork/Mallow_North_Urban/Fair_Street/1130244/

James Gray is living with the Flynn's in 1911 also as grandfather
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Cork/Mallow/Fair_Street/430692/

Mary Flynn's maiden name appears to be Connors
birth of daughter Theresa

James Gray died 1915
