After building a tree with many hundreds of  ancestors on 3 continents I have found that the key person, my great grandfather, was the wrong James McMahon

So, I am starting over and hope someone is able to help fill in the gap particularly regarding his parents and their families.

The only James McMahon I can find from Armagh ( other than the family from Crossmaglen who I had followed previously) with a father named Edward ( this I know from James's marriage certificate) was born  at Derrykintone, Armagh .

He was the second child of Edward and Teresa  nee  Haughey. She was in 1838, Armagh to James and Alice nee Laughren.

Edward and Teresa's other children were:
 John b.1863 Aghaloo, Tyrone
 Mary 1866
Edward 1870
Catherine1871
Joseph 1872
Francis 1874
Thomas 1876
Ann 1881

All the children, other than John, were born in Armagh.

I have quite a bit of information after James's marriage to Julia Brown in Belfast

I am looking for Edward's place and date of birth and any details about his family and any information on Teresa's family.

I have searched thoroughly on Ancestry, Irish Genealogy and Family Search but no luck.

I'd be so grateful for any information please/

Teresa died 8 days after Anne's birth

You have omitted the most important information, and that is that they were Roman Catholic.

Is this James' marriage for reference?  It was not in Belfast.

In case not already posted in previous related topics, just to note that the St. Peter's RC church record of James McMahon's second marriage (ie. to Lavinia Mullan in 1898) goes a step further than the corresponding civil registration, in that it shows both parents for each party, namely:

- James McMahan of 41 Milford Street: Parents Edward McMahan and Teresa Haughey; and
- Lavinia Mullan of 29 Milford Street: Parents John Mullan and Jane Mulholland.

So yes, the correct folk.

The Aghaloo RC parish register shows a marriage of Edward McMahon to Teresa Haghey on 7 June 1863, the witnesses were John Haghey and Francis Keenan (left page):

".. this I know from James's marriage certificate"

Can you please list all the information on the marriage certificate.

Thank you  gaffy and Dundee for all that information
Should I be looking in both Armagh and Tyrone for the Haughey's and  Mcmahons?
Thank you again :)
