Bridget (McIlroy) Henderson's death, if the age at death is wrong by a lot, compared to her age in 1851. not impossible:

Morning all,

I went off to bed just after my last post so woke up to this amazing info. I'm going to have a good read through it all.

Spoke to the wife this morning and she said her dad had once said that they were Catholics.

A HUGE thank you to you all for your time and efforts.

However, you are just starting. A lot or most of the Irish records that are extant are online, unlike Austria, probably. And it might be doable.

I've been researching my UK side for donkeys years ...

The Austrian side has been good - so far.

Many of the old Parish Registers are online for free so as long as you have an area or parish then it's fairly easy to go looking especially if you are prepared to troll through the index (hand written). What isn't easy is ... the Germanic handwritting and the Latin ...

Again thank for the help :)

Have you looked at the wedding certificate of Patrick and Bridget from Scotland's People website this should give you ages of bride and groom and names of both sets of parents including mothers maiden names may help in finding them in Ireland

From the original post on this thread it looks like OP already has viewed marriage certificate-
Quote
Bridget Henderson. Wife of Patrick Mullholland. Born in Ireland about 1852 and married in Scotland in 1876.
Archibald Henderson. According to the marriage cert in 1876 he was a Master Tailor.
