I have checked on the freely accessible Family Search, i have Searched on the paid sites M/H & A.... Perhaps i'm missing something being too specific.

Can anyone find a 'marriage' of Honorah Turner born 9/7/1889 Northern Ireland to Robert C Gemmell?

It's quite possible the marriage record will not be online. Son William born Edmonton, Alberta, Canada and they were still living there at time of 1916 census.

Added- 1919 border crossing gives Nora's Canadian contact as mother-in-law Mrs. Jean Gemmell at an address in Edmonton. Same address here so looks like William Howard Gemmell was Robert's brother (and Nora's son William H. possibly named after him)-

There's no point asking for help by PM as others will not see the new information you found.

The 1916 marriage should list the residences of both bride and groom as well as occupations and names of both witnesses.

The 1920 death certificate for 'Millie Elliott' should list residence, marital status, cause of death, informant.

There is a Glenties death for an Andrew Elliott in 4th quarter 1919 age 33- occupation, marital status and residence will be listed and if this is Melisina's husband then she might be listed as informant.

Thank you very much family routes and aghadowey

I have family notes that Bill (William Gemmell) married Ann Gemmell and lived in Collingwood New Jersey (prior they lived in Philadelphia)

I am trying to find out when Robert C Gemmell (Husband and father) died. He is in the 1920 census but after than he isnt in the 1930 or 1940 census.

Seems strange they only had one child. I am not sure on who Barbara Gemmell is. Thank you for that, i will see what, i can find further on her ??? ??? ;D ;D

Please tell us ALL the details you have at the start rather than later mentioning bits that make a difference to the searches we do trying to help you.

Since you probably don't know the Philadelphia area-
In 1920 Bill & Norah Gemmill & son were living at  321 North Narberth Ave., Lower Merrion, Montgomery Co. (slightly northwest of Philly)
   https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MFYV-PKK
Honor B. Gemmell who died 1980 is buried in West Laurel Hill Cemetery, Bala Cynwyd, Montgomery Co.
Both places are in Lower Merrion Township and only about 2 miles apart. Collingwood, N.J. is only about 15 miles from the cemetery.

Not all records are on Find A Grave so I suggest you contact the cemetery to ask what details they have for Honor B. Gemmell and anyone else buried in the same plot. Also ask if Robert C. Gemmell/Gemmil's there.
