A marriage of a GHS to a Francis Beirne was reg Inishowen Oct-Dec quarter 1946.


EDIT......Catherine has corrected the above marriage as incorrect...see her message below...Thank You Catherine.

Possible?

Ireland, Civil Registration Marriages Index, 1845-1958 about Owen Mahon
Name: Owen Mahon
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1933
Registration district: Mohill
Volume: 3
Page: 108 (click to see others on page)
FHL Film Number: 101577

also on same page:-

Mary Kate Gallogly Jan-Feb-Mar 1933 Mohill
Brigid J Gilfillan Jan-Feb-Mar 1933 Mohill
Mary Kate Giloghy Jan-Feb-Mar 1933 Mohill
Mary Kate Harahan Jan-Feb-Mar 1933 Mohill
Peter Maguire Jan-Feb-Mar 1933 Mohill
xxxxxxx Owen Mahon Jan-Feb-Mar 1933 Mohill xxxxxxx
xxxxxxx Catherine McCabe Jan-Feb-Mar 1933 Mohill xxxxxxx
Peter McGuire Jan-Feb-Mar 1933 Mohill
Michael O'Rourke Jan-Feb-Mar 1933 Mohill

.....................here again the marriage cert. will confirm, or not, if this one is correct. If Catherine's father is noted as being Owen, then this could very well be the correct one, if not, then we will have to look again.

Catherine also had siblings (all have mmn McCabe):-

Ireland, Civil Registration Births Index, 1864-1958

Birth, Baptism & Christening

NAME: Annie B Mahon
MOTHER: McCabe
BIRTH: Jun 1935 - Mohill

Annie B Mahon Apr-May-Jun 1935 Mohill

Brigid R Mahon Jul-Aug-Sep 1943 Mohill

Sheila B Mahon Jul-Aug-Sep 1945 Mohill

............which helps narrow down a marriage for parents.

.........................................

...............may be worth keeping on file, just in case, or may help to eliminate him from your research.

However, if the marriage is correct then it could be that he married in England but spent some time in Ireland with his regiment.

As I said earlier the marriage cert. of Raymond and Catherine will give you father's name and occupation which will help confirm if this is his father, or not.

The marriage certificate of Raymond and Catherine will give you their father's name which may help find, or confirm any findings.
