Michael Donovan Marriage Info
« on: Sunday 02 September 18 05:42 BST (UK) »
Looking for any marriage info on a Michael Donovan (possibly born John Michael Donovan) to a Margaret Ford. Also marriage info on possible second marriage to a Kate surname unknown.
Oral history says Michael was a publican some where in Co. Cork. I have found record of a will of a Michael Donovan (died 26 Mar. 1906) with a wife named Kate, says he was a publican from Balmeen Co Cork.
My research shows somewhere in the Queenstown area.

What sort of era are you talking about?

There is a Michael Donovan - Margaret Forde name match here:

Death:

That would presumably read across to these folk in 1901?

But that Michael was recorded as a bachelor in his marriage registration:

Thanks gaffy for the possible marriage info.
Census I think maybe incorrect I forgot to mention they had a son born about 1873, he ended up moving and marring (1895) in South Australia.

Why not just fully disclose ALL of what you know, in chronological order, so people can see who you are looking for and when etc....


Were there other children apart from the one you didn't mention?

The only extra info we now is once deserting ship in Port Pirie Sth Australia about 1894 he married my g grandmother Elizabeth Ann Brooks 12 Feb 1895. He died 12 Sept 1910 aged 38. The oral history about parents being publicans and his father marring twice came from him. As far as we know he was not cathlic.
