New York, Wills and Probate Records, 1659-1999 - Westchester. New York.

Fanny B Magrath mentions her husband and a niece Theresa Blundell in the first section

I have seen a ref to a Wm Magrath marrying a Fannie Blundell in 1881 (but can't access the record). And a Fannie B Magrath dies in 1891 in NY.
Is anyone able to check this out for me?
His parents were Geo P Magrath & Mary Scott. He was a solicitor who later lived/died at Mt Vernon.
Many thanks

To answer the question you have asked.

I think this is the marriage record being referenced. His parents names seem to match what you have provided and the date is 1881 to a "Fannie"

Not being able to identify his wife had been bugging me for some time. Thank you so much for your contributions - much appreciated.
