Marriage of Coleman Kenna/Rose MCGrath
« on: Tuesday 10 September 19 19:33 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find the marriage of Coleman Kenna and Rose McGrath which I think would have been around 1834/1835 probably Newtown and Kilcock. They are my maternal great, great grandfather and grandmother.
I have hit a brick wall. I am actually trying to find Rose McGrath's maiden name. I have search everywhere I can think of, Find my Past, Ancestry, Parish Records but nothing appears.
Their children are:
James born 1837
Mary born 1840
Coleman born 1843
John born 1845
Wiliam born 1849
Rose born 1854
I am in the process of working my way through the children and have found a couple of marriages I think may be
James and Mary.
Thanks in advance for any information or help on where else I could search.

Is McGrath not her maiden name?
Was she married previously?

Have you tried the surrounding parishes, marriages are usually in the bride's parish and she may not be from Newtown and Kilcock.

Sorry heywood, my mistake. Meant to say it was her mother's maiden name I was looking for.
Thank you.

Have you checked sponsors on baptism records for possible relatives?

There is a baptism for Rose McGrath 26th May 1842, Kilcock with parents transcribed as ‘Tanico’ McGrath and Jane Connillys.

Coleman Kenna baptised 1843 has a McGrath Godfsther - possibly James who might be the one above.

I m sorry, I have no time to link them but as you have the children’s baptisms, I am sure you can find them.

I can’t find any other McGrath/Connolly reference.

there's a gap in the marriage records between 1825 and mid 1834 for this parish which could be why you cannot locate the marriage see https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0708

Thank you, that is probably why I cannot find it. I will just keep working around the rest of the family and see what else I can find.
