Francis Stewart Marriage Enniskillen 1907
« on: Friday 12 January 18 13:49 GMT (UK) »
Hi all, just joined and hoping someone can give me a hint or two on additional research. I have managed to track down my great grandfather's birth, marriage and death certificate, However I can only find a death certificate for his wife. His wife's name was Mary Anne kelly, they were married in 1907 in Arney, Enniskillen. Tried the irish genealogy site but came up empty so far.

I am aware that the marriage certificate and the name on the birth certificate could be variants as can happen in translation due to accents etc but I just can't seem to find his wife, even with the parents names already known.  Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated, Cheers.

1901 Irish Census has a Luke Kelly, farmer living with his family at Greaghnagleragh that's a possibility.

Luke Kelly still in the same place in 1911:

Luke Kelly had been married 23 years, so looking for a marriage approx 1888.

Thanks everyone, I am new to this so not quite up to speed on the best search methods yet.  I will have a look through these and see what I can match with the information I have at present.  Cheers

Try this one for Mary Anne - #58

Thanks for finding that, it ties in with the other  certificates for the same name and farm.  Given that farms tend to be very large, what is the chances that these could be unrelated?

Just found a flaw in this one. The mothers name in the marriage certificate is Rogers but on this it says, I think, McGrahy or something similar. Other than that would be a perfect match.
