Mary Crawford death
« on: June 07, 2019, 10:15:39 AM »
Just wondering if anyone can be of assistance?

I am looking to find a death for Mary Crawford.

She married David Donaldson 1861 Dungannon. Age stated as a minor. Maiden name Gibson. She then marries Samuel Crawford. 1866 Newtownsavalle. Age full. Name given is Donnaldson (Widow) stated. Father William Gibson.
Samuel dies 1914 Dromore.
1901 census [size=78%]http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Tyrone/Killyfaddy/Dromore__Middle/1726423/[/size] Age stated as 49
1911 census [size=78%]http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Tyrone/Kilfaddy/Dromore_Middle/856204/[/size] age stated as 78.
Can't find another marriage certificate, so I can only assume she died a Crawford.
Samuel does not leave a will.

What age would she be at birth? Most importantly. When and where did she die?

I appreciate any help guys. "It's a head wrecker"

CMcG. Thank you. I'm now wondering if she may have gone oversees. Or is it a case of the death wasn't registered?

There is also children I can't find. Time to look for possible passenger lists. Any ideas were I might begin? Links etc.

GRONI has a death registered in Clogher district for a Mary Crawford who died on 17 March 1924, reported age 76, has to be a possibility.

Good stuff, in as much as I assumed her age was understated in the 1901 census, I also assumed there was a fair measure of  'inflation' in her 1911 census return age due to the introduction of the old age pension (1908), my guess is that she was born c. 1841-45...
