Hi Hallmark, yes I found Thomas. Jacobi campbell, Maria Hinfey 1842. I wonder if you could possibly look at the irish genealogy site and verify something for me. Its the death of James Campbell October 1890 Londonderry age 39, there is a correction in the margin as to his birth date, I am reading it as age at death 39 but originally entered as 45. He would have been the son of Mary. Thank you for your interest it is much appreciated.

Thanks Hallmark, there has always been that area of doubt, but as the widow confirmed his age there is no disputing it. I will keep plugging away, thank you once again, it has all been most informative.

I noticed that there was reference to Mary Campbell/Meenan, do you think this was possibly her maiden name, or one she had acquired lets say

Hi
I'm afraid that the reports do not say how she acquired the Meenan name. But we do know that her husband was James Campbell. So presumably not by marriage!
I looked for a burial in the new Derry City Cemetery database, but didn't find one.
The report in the Sentinel on the 11 August is interesting, reporting the testimony of some of the witnesses in more detail. And it mentions Paddy M'Ginley as being the son of the prisoner.

Thanks Jon, at this moment i am trying to gather as much information as possible, the story so far is my gr grandfather James Campbells parents were a James and Mary Campbell. James Jnr was born in Magherafelt 1851, information received from the city cemetery, no maiden name for the mother. cannot find a birth for him. James Jnr and his wife lived in Wellington St in 1885, at the birth of their daughter there was a Mary Campbell in attendance also of wellington St . I have done Ancestry dna and there is a distant connection to a Mary Hinfey married to a James Campbell 1841 Ballmaguigan Magherafelt. they had a child Thomas in 1842. Family lore is that the senior Campbells lived in Londonderry and had some kind of business. As you can see without a maiden name for Mary its all conjecture. I have been searching for a birth for James Jnr both in Londonderry and Magherafelt for so long now with no success, i do know that he was married at the long tower in 1868. as you can see i am exploring all possibilities. Thanks once again for your interest, i will look into your last post.

A very grateful Daisy
