I'm searching for more information on my 2nd great gm Martha Francis McDowell. According to the Census of 1871 her birthplace is Birmingham, Warwickshire, Married 1870 in Athlone Ireland to Joseph Hornsby and died in India 1878 Fyzabad, Bengal. Her Father John was present at the marriage. Any further info would help.
I can't find any records of her birth in Birmingham, wondering if it was Birr in Ireland as her father is listed as Superintendent for Constabulary on the marriage certificate.


I feel it's all to easy to wander off down the wrong family line, so I'm hoping someone might just be able to confirm a couple of details.

My 3x great-grandfather John Hornsby
b 7 MAY 1797 Longbenton, Northumberland, England
d APRIL 1854 Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland
married a Sarah Walton (b 1802) of Alston, Cumbria in 1827.

It's his father, Thomas and mother, Elizabeth (nee Turner) that I can't confirm back beyond. Does anyone have them in their tree or have information about them?
Many thanks in advance
