Hi Sandi
Your post is in the NZ forum. Did James Lamont and Margaret Norris emigrate to NZ or did they stay in Ireland as you have a death date for James in Ballmoney?
Where was Mary Jane Lamont born? When?
Just need to be certain which country and at what period we are meant to be searching in.

This is possibly her death

1904/2660   Thorburn   Mary Jane   49Y

Later note - I've found a burial for this person on Ancestry, on 8/5/1904, at Wainui cemetery, near Silverdale, north of Auckland. This person was born in New Zealand.

An internet search for "Andrew Wotherspoon Thorburn" nets many leads if he turns out to be a person of interest in your family line, aka "Andrew Weatherspoon Thorburn".

Sandi kindly sent me a pm with this information
Quote
Margaret and James didn't emigrate to New Zealand,
Mary Jane Lamont was born in Ireland 1855 and she emigrated to New Zealand. All I know Margaret's father's name was Robert and so was James. Hope this help a little.

I think Sandi is looking to go back James Lamont's and Margaret Norris's parents.

There are Lamonts from outside Ballymoney in County Antrim but I'm not sure these are the ones you are looking for.

A James Lamont and Margaret Norris (married 1850) were having children in County Tyrone-
Peggy Jane (1865) https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1865/03556/2309304.pdf
Margaret (1869) https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1869/03400/2246844.pdf
Adam (1872) https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1872/03227/2182830.pdf

Marriage of Margaret Norris & James Lemon (1850)- this extracted record lists both fathers as Robert-
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QGV8-2R39

Possible death for James Lamont (1893)-
