I clicked on Marriages, then chose 1880's folder...

there are 2 Roses marrying, James father of both..

So you are really better off checking them for yourself, see if you find younger siblings registered 1864 etc  and match up townlands with Marriages.

Births also show Mother's maiden name.

Hi Hallmark,
Thank you for all your help and information. It was through the parish records link on here that I found that particular Rose McKeon. Had thought for a long time, it was someone else, but the dates didn't add up and I found a family linked to her through another site. Even researched the former Rose's family and had thought I'd got quite far, so when I realised 'my' Rose had married someone who was not my great-grandfather, I went back to her marriage record and death registration and went searching in the parish records.

On Rose McKeon's marriage to my great-grandfather, John Friary, it simply states her place of residence as 'Columkill'. She is aged 20 in 1883, they were married in the chapel of Mullinalaghta in Scrabby and her father's name is James McKeon, so I searched the Scrabby parish records (alt names include: Scrabby and Collumkill, Columcille East, Mullnalaghta, etc) for 1863 and years either side. 26th January 1863. Rose McKeon- father: Jacobi McKeon. Mother: Maria Whitney
Sponsers: Michael McKeon & Catherine Donahoe was the only one I could find that fit her details.

However, I have trawled through the same parish register looking for another child with the same parents, but I am either missing it or there isn't one! Maybe James married again?!

Because of the amount of McKeon's in the area and their love for repeating Christian names, this line of the family is proving tricky!

No problem

Did you look at the other 6 marriages in 1880's to see if any were siblings?

Hi Hallmark,
I took your advice- looked through the other marriages for 1880-1889 in both Longford and Granard (seeing as Collumkill +variations could mean either) and found two, whose fathers were listed as James, both in 1888. John McKeon (age 23) m. Kate Tynan- living at Aughnashanna. Witnesses: William McCabe and Mary Keegan. Father James listed as a Farmer.
Thomas McKeon (full age) m. Catherine Whitney- living at Gortmure. Witnesses: Edward Gormley and Maria Collum. Father James listed as a Labourer.

Attempted to trace both John and Thomas's birth registration and couldn't find a record for a John with a father named James for his estimated birth year- 1864-66 (I always give it a couple of years around the age listed, due to the amount of clerical errors, etc in those days). For Thomas, I found a Thomas (b. 1865) in Soran, mother: Mary Conlon. That was the only one I could find that could fit the 'Full age' category on the 1888 wedding.

The most likeliest to be connected to my Rose McKeon would be the Thomas. The father listed as a Labourer matches and one of the witnesses names- Edward Gormley. On my great-great grandparents (John Friary & Rose McKeon) wedding registration, one of their witnesses was Bridget Gormley. Also Thomas married Catherine Whitney and Rose's mother was Maria Whitney! Perhaps James was married twice- first to Maria Whitney and then to Mary Conlon- and Thomas fell for his half sister's cousin?

From all this research, I have picked up on the fact that second marriages don't appear to be uncommon, due to women dying in or soon after childbirth. Both my great x 3 grandfather, Bernard married twice (possibly 3 times. Still got to work that one out!); great x 2 married twice and many of the aunts married twice. Quick widowhood followed by a quick second marriage, because the children needed a mother/father!
