Marriage Thomas Lennox and Margaret Johnston, 1850
« on: Monday 25 June 18 23:05 BST (UK) »
I am looking for the parents of  both Thomas Lennox born abt 1826 and Margaret Johnston born abt 1830 who married in 1849/1850 in Magherafelt. They lived in Anaghmore after marriage. They had children James abt 1863,  Mary for  sure Oct 7,1867, Thomas Oct 8, 1870. I think I found them in 1901 but Margaret must be deceased. Not sure how to send links.
Lennox   Thomas   Annaghmore   Castledawson   Londonderry   74   M 1901
Lennox   Thomas   Annaghmore   Castledawson   Londonderry   85   M 1911
Thanks for any help

Marriage very easily found on Family Search- you can pay to view the certificate on GRONI or wait until it appears on Irish Genealogy (free)-

How did I miss that marriage on familysearch which I use extensively cause it's free!!
I have an Andrew Johnston born abt 1780 which might be Margaret's father. As for Margaret's death, I would opt for the  1885 as the age is exact, and the husband is Thomas. Although Thomas is a farmer in 1901, his two sons are weavers as is his sister, so Thomas may have been a weaver at one point.
I have a James Lennox born abt 1795, son of Edward and Margaret, could be Thomas' father but this is guesswork at this point.
Thanks for your help

That is interesting. Samuel is right next door, one year younger, and a widower. I wonder if his father is James as well. Would be hard to find his marriage or his birth. I am going to check the 1911 and Proni, and familysearch, amongst others.

A likely candidate for Samuel. Born 1825, son of Henry, wife Sophie  Dawson.Samuel died before 1911 as he is not on that census. Samuel  and Sophie married Sept 26, 1851 Woods Chapel.
There is a Sophia who died Feb 23, 1899 in Magherafelt but says married, housekeeper, died of dementia in workhouse. Shouldn't it  say wife of...... She is the correct age.
