Anthony Report 3 Jul 2013 12:28

I have a copy of the Death Certificate of my GGGrand-dad John Donoghue who died in a Toxteth Workhouse 1902 aged 46 , his Wife Mary b1868 does not show on the 1911 Census or on the Death Records during that period , however there is a Mary Donoghue Marriage in 1903 , West Derby Lancs .

This may be the my Ancestor and she my have re-married , can anyone provide any further details .

Where was Mary born?

Is this the marriage your are looking at ?

Marriages Sep 1903 (>99%)

Donoghue Mary W.Derby 8b 754
Green Jane W. Derby 8b 754
Harrison John W. Derby 8b 754
HUDSON Elizabeth Callow W. Derby 8b 754
Millwaters George W. Derby 8b 754

There is a George Millwaters married to a Jane on 1911 so you can rule those two names out

Without getting the cert, you have no way of knowing if this is the 'right' Mary

Find the site...............and put it in your favourites. If you have Lancs relatives, it's a great tool

Mary was born in County Clare but shows on the 1871 Census in Toxteth Liverpool , I thought I placed the details on a GENERAL REQUEST !!!.
