MARRIAGE...Mary Jane O'Neill Dungiven
« on: Saturday 24 June 17 10:02 BST (UK) »
I have been trying for some time to find the marriage record of my GG Aunt Mary Jane O'Neill born to parents John O'Neill and Catherine Kealey 17 Feb 1871 in Dungiven. Her brother Hugh O'Neill in his Will dated 1943 refers to her as Mrs Mary Jane O'Donnell. Where in the world this marriage took place is a mystery. Any help would be much appreciated.

Welcome to RootsChat Pam Tree
Just posting a link to her birth as she may have married in her home district
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1871/03302/2210102.pdf
Writing is terrible but I think it says her father is a grocer which will help finding a marriage.
District Newtownlimavady.

HI Sinann
Yes that is indeed Mary Jane's birth details and thank you for taking the trouble to look it up for me. It looks on paper after she was born no other record exists of her linked to Dungiven. So I am assuming she left and married O'Donnell elsewhere.

Looks like your correct I couldn't find a marriage for her in the area.
Am I correct her father died 1885
http://www.willcalendars.nationalarchives.ie/reels/cwa/005014900/005014900_00364.pdf
so will probably be marked deceased on her marriage.

Looking for marriages for her siblings might if she was witness to any of them narrow down the date she married/left the area, or if you know where any of them went, if they did leave, she may have gone to the same place.
