William O'Neill and Margaret Donnelly
« on: Friday 24 May 19 19:03 BST (UK) »
Was just wondering if anyone was researching the above named couple.
William was born c.1844 in Desertcreight Dungannon Tyrone as far as I can ascertain whilst Margaret Donnelly was baptised 12 Aug 1847 in  Clonfeacle Dungannon, Tyrone.
Respective parents seem to be John O'Neill and Molly Doyle and James Donnelly and Jane Devlin.
The couple were married 31st January 1869 in Clonfeacle Co. Tyrone.

Children include;
James born 1869 in Dungannon.
Mary Anne born 1873 in Dublin.
John born 1875 in Dungannon.
Elizabeth born 1877 in Milltown Dungannon ,Tyrone
Hugh born 1883 in Milltown Dublin.
William born 1886 in Milltown Dublin.
Owen born 1888 in Clonskeagh Dublin.

William's profession seems to have been a blacksmith/metalworker/platelayer/spademaker.
cannot find definite death dates for either person as of yet.

This is the family on 1901 census;

Thanks for that.
It has indirectly perhaps solved a puzzle for an American descendant of William and Mary re. Booth family connection.
