Good finds Jon. I saw those too and was going to post them when I had time - like now  ;D
The Barker connection might be useful.

But I haven't found a death of Daniel so far!
Sarah might also be in Scotland later :-\
Death of a Sarah Walker / Sarah Connor in Kelvingrove in 1946, age 86 (ref 644/9 327)

But that is all very speculative at the moment.

Sorry, just missed your later posts - I think that Annie Connor had a sister Mary-Anne and there is a link to the O'Kanes

Is this your OíKane family link?

Charles Kane with parents William and Mary Ann Connor

I canít find a marriage though  :-\

There are some Catholic baptisms in Dungiven parish for children of  William and Mary Ann.
Even more Connors as Sponsors.

OH WOW!!! Thank you soooo so much - I have been hunting for years for any connection with Wards and Barker - there is a marriage which took place in England but I think, from memory, the dates were completely wrong!  Oh I shall take a look at all this info over the weekend!  I did find an O'Kane/O'Connor marriage at one point - Billy Kanes were in each generation!  and I think I also came across a birth but the names listed were as though they were from the previous generation eg) as though the grandparents were listed as the parents!  I shall have to go hunting again for that record methinks! 

Thank you all so very much for your time and help!  This info, I have a feeling, will be what brings the brick wall a little lower!    ;D ;D ;D ;D

Re Daniel's death (proving difficult to find an obvious one in Ireland!)
If your William and Annie Ward are the couple in Govan in 1901 with son Daniel born Ireland, in RD Hutchesontown, then there might be a death possibilty on ScotlandsPeople
1898, Hutchesontown, ref 644/11 1275, Daniel Connor, age 72

YES, that is them - Their eldest daughter is also a Mary but I don't think she is listed on this particular census - and I have subscribed to Scotlands People, with most of them on all sides flocking over to Glasgow, so I shall check that ref out re Daniel!  Thank you JonW - feeling a lot more positive tbh - after so many years of looking for Oconnors/Wards/Dorans etc in Ireland I was about ready to give up and just decided they must have been a wee bit guarded about their details and had given false names whenever anything official came up LOL - I still wouldn't put it past them ha ha
