I may have spoken too soon  ::)

I just searched ‘Letitia’ about 1880 and there is this entry:
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/birth_returns/births_1879/02923/2071137.pdf

Letitia - mother Mary Finnegan, formerly Johnston, Portadown.

There is also Rachel Finnigan here

Just a possibility for a John Finnegan death in 1872 (not conclusive):

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1872/020721/7270204.pdf

So the working theory is that Mary Johnston married John Finegan in 1854 (BTW, the couple had several children), then John died in 1872, widow Mary then had three daughters out of wedlock, before marrying John Morrow in 1893.

Children to parents John Finnegan and Mary Johnston post civil registration of births, the last one slots in time wise with that 1872 death of a John Finnegan in 1872:

- John b. 1866:

I was getting there too gaffy.
It’s a bit complicated now.  :)

I could see where you were going at reply #9.  I haven't found a birth yet for Esther (Lucinda?)

Anyhow, I've hit a hiatus now, so I think I'll head out for my daily lockdown walk... :)

Hi all, This has thrown a spanner in the works  :o ;D ;D

I couldn't understand how the link came up with Letitia in Belfast in 1901 and put the Co Armagh on the 1911 census down to a mistake. It was the spelling of Letitia meant that I never saw this census record of the 3 sisters. From what I have read here, it looks as though the Letitia Morrow is from Co Armagh after all. Think my family tree will need to be changed from the Letitia Morrow (b 1880) point backwards

By a strange coincidence though, the Letitia Morrow (Donegal) who I had thought was my  gg-grandmother was a Letitia Johnston (b 1831) married to a John Morrow (1827-1902)and whose famiy background I believe to be from the Dromore area, not far from Lurgan and John Finnegan's address at time of his death.

All I can say is thank you so much for this information.

Regards

Terry
