Letitia Morrow married to James Morrow 1904.
« on: Saturday 19 March 11 12:36 GMT (UK) »
Hi, Have a problem in that my great grandfather James Morrow (roden st, Belfast, 1911 census) was married to a Letitia Morrow (maiden name is also Morrow). They were married in 1904 but I couldn't find a Letitia Morrow from Co. Armagh. I did find one from Antrim (Father Robert, Mother Rose) & one from Donegal (father John, Mother Letitia). One Letitia is married in 1897 to a William Morrow in Fermanagh, and the other to James Morrow in 1904. As Letitia Morrow from Donegal is living at home with her parents in the 1901 census I can only presume that she is the one married in 1904. Is there any way to confirm if this is correct?

Hi,
   One slight bit of confirmation is that when Letitia married James Morrow she gave her father's name as John which ties in with the Donegal 1901 census. However I cannot explain the birth in Donegal/Armagh discrepency.

Hi, Thanks for this. I couldn't find her fathers name on marriage search (familysearch) and that is where I was getting confused. So thank you very much for this information!

Hi, I have been updating my research on my family genealogy and am in touch with someone in New Zealand. They have stated the connection is a Henry Morrow born 02/06/1858 in Donegal. On his marriage certificate to Ellen Robinson it states his father as John Morrow, Grouselodge which I believe is around Pettigo, Donegal. Henry is supposed to be a brother of my g-grandmother Letitia Morrow with the family in Grousehall, Donegal in the 1901 census. My research shows siblings of Letitia as Johnston, Mary and James (I believe twins) William and Abraham. Can anyone confirm if Henry is  son of John and Letitia Morrow (nee Johnston). Also, is Grouselodge as on Henry's marriage Certificate the same place as Grousehall where my gg-grandparents family are in the 1901 and 1911 census?

Many thanks

Terry

Grousehall is a townland in the Civil Parish of Templecarn. It's north-east of the village of Pettigo.

Grouse Lodge was probably close to, or in the townland of Cashelenny and therefore east of Grousehall (or in Grousehall itself).
https://www.townlands.ie/donegal/tirhugh/templecarn/grousehall/cashelenny/

Its original construction was probably funded or partially funded by some of the owners of the larger houses in the area including Grouse Lodge and Tievemore House to the south-west, both now ruinous.

Did you ever confirm this?
Since your initial query, the actual GRO marriage registrations have been put online, which will show her father's name and occupation.

A possibility for the Rachel Morrow's birth (the younger sister inn1901 census), albeit age slightly out:

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/details-civil/43d77210105377

The father is a John, but a weaver rather than carpenter.

Not Armagh though  :-\

I couldn’t find much earlier at all and since then, have seen a tree which shows Lucenda Morrow (see birth below ) as Esther Lucinda (Essie) Morrow with a father, John, a Carpenter.

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1875/03094/2134614.pdf
The marriage to Theophilus Hearsley is detailed on the tree but the Morrow sisters are not. There are two Finnegan half sisters so as yet, it is not a reliable source.
