Hi Seany,
It is difficult. I have only given you names from the records and I did write ‘if these are yours’.
With regard to two Michaels, it is a common occurrence that a later child is named after an earlier deceased child so that could be the case here - if they are the same family.
Lots of ‘ifs’  ;)

Hi there,

I've got a mysterious GG Grandmother, Annie Clark. She arrived in Australia from Ireland and married an Prussian man.

On her Marriage cert. It says she was born about 1849, from Wicklow, Ireland. Her parents being Charles Clark, a publican, and Catherine Talbot

I found a baptism for Ann Clark in Blackditches, Wicklow, Ireland 12 Aug 1850 with the parents Chas Clark and Cath Talbott

Sean... like others I'm getting confused!!

You did not find a baptism for Ann Clark in Blackditches, Wicklow, Ireland 12 Aug 1850 with the parents Chas Clark and Cath Talbott

So, has Ann Clark been found??

I think it'll remain an ifuntil I take out Catherine's Marriage cert in Australia.

The information I began with came from her Birth Cert, looking for Charles Clark and Catherine Talbot from Wicklow that had an Annie Clark about 1849. That lead to a finding a certificate of an 1850 certificate for her with the same parents which upon reading the original turns out to be for a John, not a an Ann.

If Annie Clark isn't the 1850 child born in Blackditches. Maybe She's still their child, but hiding on the faded pages of the church papers? but I cant find her. Or maybe she's of another Charles Clark and Catherine Talbot out there in another Wicklow County. It's all so frustrating  ???

It doesn't help that on page 18, there's a chunk missing where I think I can see the Someone born on the 25th or so. Completely faded. I think I read the words Kelly and Clark on that page? Am I seeing things? There are so many Clarkes in that town.

I don't know how I can narrow down which part of Ireland she if from if the Marriage cert is my best idea. Wicklow isn't exactly small.
