Yes, that looks like him.  It's all falling into place now, isn't it?

Now for Christopher Kelly

I have found a birth in August 1871 for a Christopher Kelly in Guiness, Co Down to a
Christopher Kelly and Mary McCann.

So I am hopeful that this is the correct Christopher!!

Not sure if you are looking for his parents marriage I'm wondering if this is the correct one
I think Mary's surname maybe wrongly transcribed and should read McCann  :-\

Thanks Lady hawk!

I was indeed looking for the marriage, unfortunately it is pre 1864, so no parents names etc but the names of the children are useful.

All this was an attempt to prove someone I know is related and how they are related, but without getting further back looks like I won't know, I will keep trying though!

My gg grandfather is William Kelly (born c. 1840,residence Backaderry, Castlewellan, Co Down,  at time of marriage in 1873) and his father is John Kelly, but I haven't been able to get further than this and I was hoping tracing Kelly relatives backwards might help but it hasn't!

Time to try another route!
