Yes. There seem to be a few. However going off ages and your marriage details

Mary Alice married Moses born 1845

His father was John born abt 1825

This looks to be John's baptism

Baptism 31 October 1824 St James, Altham
John Pilkington
Parents Moses Pilkington, farmer and Sarah
Born 15 October 1824, Altham

It is confusing. Does this information make sense to you?

Re Moses

All the info is on Lancashire opc- I think you have some from there

Moses Pilkington married Sarah Pickles in 1824. They seem to be the parents of John born 1824.

Pilkington is a very common surname around those areas and the names John and Moses do crop up often.
However, those father/son names seem right.

Lancashire opc http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/indexp.html only shows one child to Moses and Sarah in Altham and that is John - previously mentioned.

1841  piece 506;  Folio 8; Page 9
Shows just the three of them living in Sikeside, Altham.


Do you mean Moses and Mary Alice?
