Annie McCabe. Henry Allen Jones.
« on: Thursday 21 May 20 12:54 BST (UK) »
In April 1871 (census) Henry Allen Jones is living in Wrexham, Wales. he is a carpenter and was born in Wales.
By 1875 US census he is 31 , still a carpenter  and  married to Annie  aged 30 b Rens.  B England ?
Children Elizabeth Emily 1 yr 11 months and Sarah 8 months. B Rens.
Living in Renssalaer, Troy , NY.

In 1877 they are back in  Wrexham  where a son is born. 
JONES, HENRY  ALLEN  mmn    MCCABE     
 1877  D Quarter in WREXHAM 

Annie is obviously educated as she becomes a teacher at an elemetary school.

Can any one help find her. I`ve only found the 1875 census on Family Search,  but nothing for a marriage or births / baptisms of the daughters.
I wonder why Henry came back so soon ?

Thanks.

There's an Annie McCabe in Troy of the right age in various census records.

1850 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MC1C-TGK

1855 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K634-5XR

1860 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MC47-Z95

1865 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:QVNN-MTZN

1870 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8KS-JNK

Her mother was Sarah, and she has younger sisters named Emily/Emma and Sarah, so maybe Annie & Henry used family names for their kids?  Perhaps an obit for a parent or sibling from these censuses could rule her in or out.

This site has a lot of helpful databases for the Troy area - https://troyirish.org/  It's not strictly Irish.

That`s interesting, Annie`s father was also a carpenter as were her brothers,  could be how they met,
 Thanks a lot.
