Marriage Michael Cunningham to Mary McCann
« on: Monday 05 December 11 17:08 GMT (UK) »
Seeking information and family links to Michael Cunningham and Mary McCann, both born abt. 1812.  Married abt. 1832 in Co. Sligo.
They had at least one child, also Michael, born abt. 1842.
Michael (2nd) emigrated to Glasgow sometime before Jan. 1868, as he was married there to Elizabeth King.  Story has it that they met on the boat to Scotland, so not sure where in Ireland Elizabeth was from, but her parents were George King and Elizabeth Patterson.

My 1st post, folks.  Thanks for any help!
Co. Antrim: Reid, McCaw, Gardiner, Holmes, Eccles, Ferguson, Beck, Bell;  Co. Derry: Macaulay;  Co. Donegal: Doherty, Cunningham; Co. Sligo: Cunningham, McHugh, King(?), Hynes, McCann, Patterson, Tierney.
Scotland: Clan Donnachaidh(Reid), Clan Cunningham, Clan Bell.

Its a while since your post re Michael Cunningham and Mary McCann so don't know if you have got any more information. Rootsireland.ie (a pay site - credit system)  has a church marriage for a Michael Cunnagham and Mary McCann in Ahamlish R.C. Parish Co Sligo in 1832. Searched for baptisms of children of this couple but nothing turned up. If you think it is relevant might be worthwhile getting the marriage.
