Leslie family and Wright family of Co Longford
« on: Sunday 13 March 16 19:39 GMT (UK) »
Margaret Leslie my great great grandmother born around 1838 in Co Longford I believe, married Robert Wright about 1855 in county Longford.
As far as I know both families were Church of Ireland. I am trying to find who their parents were.
Also trying to find if either Robert or Margaret had any siblings. I don't have access to ancestry.
So any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
