My dear Joyce,

Don't worry!

I was so excited that I celebrated with something stronger - and  it's not even my family and I have no Manx connexions!!

I nearly gave up but thought I would have just one last try!

And, as you say, Eureka!!

Hey!  I hope it's right!!

All the very best,

JAP

Thanks Trish,

I need no urging!!

It's just so great that Mary Ann has been found (assuming it's the right Mary Ann - but it surely must be!).

I always have been (long long before any interest in genealogy), for some unknown reason, rather taken by the triskelion ...

And it's always good to hear from a Trish.  ;)

Hi Joyce and Jap.

That's absolutely brilliant!

Thank you too for that link to the Isle of Man Marriage index!

 I didn't know about this and I was just about to start looking for something else!

Hi
Just a bit of an update now i have come back to earth again.
 I definately think we have got it right this time. I discovered that Mary Ann's sister Jessie Casey married John Herbert Miller, who i believe was David Miller's mother.Remember  he David Miller who put us on the right track. David had a sister Charlotte but haven't done much on her yet. Jessie Miller was in the IOM workhouse (hospital aswell as workhouse) David was born 1890 so maybe her death was connected. Need to find out what Jessie died  of.Coincidence is my husbands father was named John Herbert.
Best bit. We live about 15min  away from Poulton-le-fylde where Mary Ann lived with her grandparents in 1861, and after a visit to the town and a chat to a lady from the local history society, i now know that John Mcmanus grandfather is buried in the Catholic Church graveyard in the town. So i will go and have a look for it, but only on a sunny day as it is a bit creepy there.
 Also that in1861 Ann Mcmanus  was  John's wife but  in 1871 and 1881 she  became Nancy Mc manus and continued looking after the lodging house until her death in 1888. The lodging house is now the entrance to a shopping centre.
It is truly exhausting, but i will soldier on.
Joyce

Hi
Yes i have got all those.
Having trouble in finding Charlotte though after the 1881 census. I am sure she will turn up somewhere.
