Family History - brickwall
« on: August 31, 2020, 12:14:30 AM »
Hi all, I am wondering if anyone can assist with a mystery about my grandmother - Christina Donegan - nee McMahon

Christina McMahon

Mothers name - Sarah Jane Maguire & John James McMahon

I have found her birth record 18/03/1897 in Fermanagh and her marriage to my grandfather Patrick Donegan at the Sacred Heart RC Church in Oldpark Belfast on 31/07/1917. They had 4 children, 1919, 1920, 1922 and 1924 all in Fermanagh, but I cannot find her death record at all. - family story is that she died of TB when my father was 3 months old (he was born 24/10/1924) so I have early 1925 to work with - but no record exists for this.

I'm also very interested in my great grandfather - John McMahon (originally from Co.Clare) but he lived at 6 Mayfair Street from 1912 - 1932 - found him on street directories for this period but then no death record to be found. Any help would be greatly appreciated as it has become a bit of an obsession -
