Jane Martin nee Waterson was born in Ireland Nov 8, 1844 and died in Idaho Falls, Bonneville Co., Idaho. She married Hugh Caldwell Martin in Scotland or Ireland. Looking for the names of her parents as there is conflicting information on different family trees.
thanks for any help

Ignore Alexander Martin and Pearl Castle that looks like an error in transcription. These things do happen.
They are not mentioned on the document which is attached to that record. Did you view the original document

Here is another example of transcription/human error with dates - this is why you can't believe everything on ancestry trees etc.,

Millennium File

Name:   Jane Watterson
Gender:   Female
Birth Date 23 Nov 1844 Birth Place Leanomorrow, Derry, Ireland
Death Date 3 Jan 1943 - Death Place Idaho Falls, Bonneville, Idaho.
Father Leonard W Watterson
Mother Eliza Martha Martin
Spouse Hugh Caldwell (Sr) Martin
Children Hugh Caldwell (Jr) Martin

you can compare the dates with the headstone inscription to see its not correct.

Yes, I have looked at everything available but was hoping for a death certificate or an obituary in order to clarify things.
Thank you

Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Thank you aghadowey. I have paid for the birth records of all of the children of Hugh Caldwell Martin and Jane Watterson, and the marriage date of their parents keeps changing. They all say Ireland but a sworn statement in USA by Hugh Caldwell Martin says Scotland in 1863.
As for Jane's birth/baptism record, it was in 1844 so before compulsory reporting. I have checked with Wood's Chapel and there is no Jane baptised there in 1844, although some trees say that is where her baptism is. I have also contacted Kildress in Co. Tyrone to check their records but there has not been time for a reply as yet.
I am hoping that someone sees this and has the information that I require.
Thanks

Thank you so very much RJ137. This is great! Doing the math, if Jane was in her 69th year, I think that means born abt 1840. I know, I know, years are not always accurate in earlier times. However, this is for sure the person I am researching and I do appreciate having this obit.
I now have to figure out which daughter married Hyram Forbush. And Hopkins.
Too bad parents are not mentioned.
