If the 1907 marriage is the correct couple then here they are in 1911-

This might be James in 1901-

Thank you i found this one too.  Yes this is the right couple.  I wasn't sure if this was the right James so haven't added it to my tree.  I am not sure how to confirm if it is correct.

This is the link for the 1907 marriage. You posted a link to one in 1917:

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1907/10098/5673857.pdf

At the time of marriage, James' residence is given as Wood End. This is in the civil parish of Leckpatrick:

https://www.townlands.ie/tyrone/strabane-lower/leckpatrick/ballymagorry/woodend/

This is likely your James in the 1901 census, aged 16, in the neighbouring townland of Roundhill working as a labourer for another family. Note he cannot read or write and that the makes his mark on the marriage record.

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Tyrone/Ballymagorry/Roundhill/1753651/

On the Weir marriage in 1877, the townland looks like Curleton(?) which I'm not able to readily find, but the next entry below is for a couple from Woodend so definitely in the right area.

Thank you.  I just found the marriage cert for his first marriage but thank you for sending it.  I wasn't sure if this was the right James in the census so wasn't keen on adding it but am guessing it could be the right one if the places are close by.

This is likely Mary Jane Weir's death in 1896 in Woodend aged 46:

Thank you.  I hadn't found that yet.  I think l was too busy trying to find out if l had the correct person but will add it so l have something to work on.

As was often the case, he didn't wait long to remarry.

Thank you for these.  I hadn't found any other children yet for them.

Do you have any idea how l can find out the name of the daughter?


You might have to spend some time during this long cold winter pulling all of the Weirs in the Strabane registration district from irishgenealogy to put family groupings together and whether you can find a marriage for the unnamed child or a related death as an infant.  This might be it -- daughter named Jane:

Somebody had to take care of the children.

Ok thanks.  I have been trying to do that for a child of James and Mary Ann but nothing has come up so far.  They had a daughter Lily (might not be her birth name) but she is also proving hard to find.
