Where were my ggrandparents married
« on: February 22, 2020, 09:52:46 AM »
My cousins in Tasmania and Dublin have shared all the information of my grandfather John McMackin (b1866 Tullymuck, Drumquin d1949 Belfast) that I need to know.However I cannot find his parents marriage.  They were Patrick McMackin and Isabella Gormly.There is a notation on the online Langfield parish register that no marriages were recorded between 1859 and 1863.  Was this because the parish priest of the time neglected his duties?I searched the online registers for the neighbouring parishes of Cappagh, Ardstraw West and Ardstraw East but still no record.Any help would be appreciated.

A testing one to say the least.  according to Familysearch.org she was possibly recorded as Bella. Lots of entries for her on that site regarding births etc but no marriage. Will keep trawling

Yes ms,My grand father John McMackin had siblings James, Patrick and Mary born in those years.  There were nine in the family.
