Hi Gaget ,

What ages are given for John and Maria on that 1875 marriage cert. ?

There is a John McDuff(age 37 labourer) and Maria McDuff(age 40) , both married born Ireland , living Old Luce Wigtown as lodgers(1881 LDS Census).

See it says he was born Ireland.  I did do a search last night there but didn't find anything. I didn't search the Catholic records though as it was getting late.

Would Peter and Sarah Donelly, listed with them on the 1881, be related to Maria, maybe.

So both born Ireland, Maria recorded as a hawker and he as a labourer. No occupation for Maria on marriage cert.

Not yet looked up your results re census, but Maria had a sister Sarah, born c1841, according to the 1851 census for Inch, Stranraer.

This marriage is interesting:

12 June 1838, Clonuff, Newry
Bridget Fitzpatrick and John McQuiade

Irish RC Parish Marriages.

I don't see any deaths or remarriages but, given same address as Abraham, it's worth keeping on the possibles list.
