Help deciphering the names in the orange box
« on: Thursday 24 January 19 22:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi all

Working on the names of possible 4th great grand parents. Managed to get this marriage registry that shows the bride and grooms parents details but can't quite make out their names.

Any help?

Thanks

Dorothy

My take is much the same though perhaps Minay Donahoe nee Shanday and still thinking about the McKennXXXXX one. :)

Possibly McKenniff? With the 'y' being an 'i' nowadays.

I see William DONAHOE and Winay DONAHOE.
As for the bride's mother, I see McKenayaff, with a Y rather than a G, though it's a pretty unlikely surname.
