Mary Greerís death in 1899. Son George was the informant:

This might be Alexander and Maryís marriage in 1850. Both had been married before. The ages donít fit very well though, so it may not be the right couple:

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1850/09384/5398955.pdf
 
The above marriage was in a Register Office. Sometimes that was because it was  a mixed denomination relationship and that suited them best.  However if Alexander & Mary had a Catholic marriage, pre 1864, it wonít be in the civil records. It ought to be in the parish records but not every RC church in Belfast has records for the 1850s. I searched on Ancestry but couldnít see any that might fit.
 
Georgeís marriage in 1887 confirms father Alexander was deceased by that date, so that points to it being the right family. Mountpottinger address also ties in with where Alexander & Mary lived:

This looks to be the couple in 1901:

1911:

I looked for wills for Alexander & Mary but did not find any.

If the family was Catholic, then Alexander & Mary may be in Milltown cemetery (opened 1869). You could contact them to see if there is a grave and if anyone else is in it. Milltown Cemetery on 028 9061 3972.

Looking for more information on Alexander Greer, died 12 Nov 1882.

93 Mountpottinger Rd.  Sea Captain.  Chronic bronchitis.  Mary Greer, wife, present.

Believe him to be father of George Greer, ropeworker lived in Anderson St with big family, most moved to Glasgow in early 1900s. Believe George's mother to be Mary Clements but not sure. Anyone know this family?

Belfast Genealogy / John Kennedy Death 1858 - 1861
« Last post by monkieskanfly on Yesterday at 08:04:17 PM »
Hello All,

I'm hoping someone is able to help me, or point me in the right direction.

I have details of my G.G.Grandmother's marriage, before she married my G.G.Grandfather.

She married a man called John Kennedy on 16 July 1855, Belfast.  They went on to have children John 1855, Isaac 1857 and Mary Anne 1859.

When she married my G.G.GF on 6 January 1861 Belfast, she was a widow.

So I'm wondering if there'd be a record of what happened to her first husband John Kennedy?  I'm guessing he died between late 1858 and 1860.

Would such a record exist? 

I am assuming that those 3 children, if they were alive, were raised along side my Great Grandfather and his siblings. Maybe?

as always, any assistance is greatly appreciated.
