You are right, Hugh who married Hannah Greer was from  Annaghmore and his father was Hugh. So that fits. Hugh born in 1881 was Hugh and Hannah's son - that fits and would make him a grandson to Grandfather Hugh who died in Nov 1907. But where is grandson Hugh in 1901? Maybe he went to America or somewhere. The rest of the story is that Hannah must have died if Isabella was Grandfather Hugh's daughter-in-law and widow of his deceased son Hugh by 1905. Unless Hannah was Hannah Isabella. We would still need the death of son Hugh before 1905. And where is Hannah or Isabella in 1901 or 1911?
Maybe we have to look outside Ireland.

That is why I posted the Link to them so you can study them at leisure as it can get messy if wrong people get posted.

Also, McNeight was also a variant of name.


Even doing this Census search doesn't show Hugh

Aha. I think we are onto something. I found a Hugh McKnight in 1900 in Philadelphia,  wife Isabella, sons William and Thomas but Isabella had had no children. So I looked up the births of William and Thomas in Ireland and they were sons of Hugh and Hannah Greer. I  also found the marriage of Hugh McKnight and Isabella Irwin Oct 11, 1888 in Gloucester City, Camden Co., New Jersey although I didn't see an image to see Hugh's father but now it is  all falling into place. But where is grandson Hugh?
And now, I have just found the death of Hugh McKnight in Philadelphia on Jan 1, 1904, born Ireland 1854, both parents born Ireland. Doesn't say wife's name but he is married.
This might be a good time to mention that I have been chasing Elizabeth McKnight married to Hugh Brown who was married in 1883 in Philadelphia and then they lived in Gloucester City,  Camden Co. New Jersey. The last time i found Elizabeth is on the 1930 census and the last time I found Hugh is on the 1940 census. His father is William Henry Brown of Ireland but I don't know her father's name. Just that in the much discussed will, Grandfather Hugh mentions his daughter Elizabeth Brown and I was going crazy trying to find a marriage in Ireland but then I found one in Philadelphia. In view of what we have just found regarding Hugh who is probably her brother, I think I was on the right track. But I can't find a death for Elizabeth Brown nee McKnight between 1930 and 1940 or for Hugh Brown after 1940.
Maybe grandson Hugh actually died in the USA but had money in Ireland.

Good McKnight!!! I just found Hannah's death, under Anna in 1885. So now we have sorted out Hugh McKnight, wife and sons. Except for where is Hugh in 1901 and where exactly did he die?
I did find the emigration of a Hugh McKnight, age 23, in 1905 to Philadelphia,  born Deroy which is probably Derry.
I wish I could find the deaths of Elizabeth Brown and her husband Hugh Brown in New Jersey.
