Just some thoughts.

If that is Mary in 1901 she was born Armagh.
I wondered about a connection between John Morrow (father Felix)  and James Morrow (husband to Letitia) - his father James.

Morrow, Johnston and even Letitia are popular names in the area so could be connected or not. :-\

Hi, As far as I know James Morrow's (husband to Letitia) father is James Morrow and mother was Sarah Jane ? James is on the 1901 census with Sarah and Annie. My research shows Sarah Jane McCord as a possible mothers maiden name although following the mistake I made between Letitia/Lititia will triple check everything I've researched.

Felix is an unusual name though.

Regards

There was Lewis Johnston who died on 30 March 1864 at a reported age of 72, the informant was his widow Ann Johnston, the address is 'Ballinagone', which the 'Placenamesni' website has as a known form of Ballynagowan townland, in Drumcree civil parish:
https://www.townlands.ie/armagh/oneilland-west/drumcree/ballynagowan/

Lewis Johnston isn't a common name, and appears as the father in the following marriages for folk from Timakeel (the same address as for Mary in her 1854 marriage to John Finnegan):
- Richard Johnston and Rachel McDonnell in 1849:

- Anne Jane Johnston and John Ligate in 1850:

- Lewis Johnston and Anne Haw in 1853:

Timakeel:

There was also a marriage of a Susan Johnston of Corcrain to a James Healey in 1876, her father listed as Lewis Johnston, one of the witnesses was a Mary Finnegan:

Wonder if this is Felix Morrow.

Also there is a tax assessment in 1827 for a Felix Morrow -  Tullylish, Lurgan

Hi,

My final piece of research for the week I think. Could someone take a look at the marriage of James Morrow and Sarah Jane McCord 16th June 1872. I can't make out parents names, profession or address. Can anyone help?

It is 1873
https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1873/11269/8132836.pdf

James Morrow, 30 yrs Sailor/Tailor  ??? father John Morrow, Flax Dresser
Sarah Jane McCord, 28 yrs, father, John McCord, Tanner
Both are living in Sackville Street.

Do you have a birth for James and his sisters with these parents?

Think it's Tailor - compare with 'T' in Tanner. 'S' in Sackville very different.
He's living at No 28, she at No 18.

Death of Sarah Jane Morrow - widow of James, a Cutter (occupation of father, fits with marriage to Letitia)
