Mary Connoughton nee Mannion/Cannon

Postby Kerry78 » Sun Sep 24, 2017 4:51 pm

Hi all this is a brick wall I need smashing down.

The above lady was my 3x Great Grandmother she was born in Galway in 1837, she was first married to my 3x Great Grandfather Michael Cannon he died in 1874 and she remarried Michael Connoughton in 1876 in Lichfield Staffordshire the last record I have of the both was the 1881 census showing them living in Old Sandford Street Lichfield but after that she vanishes from the records.....myself and a 3rd cousin having been searching but with no joy can anyone help please

Like you, I can't find Michael and Mary, and as you'll know, there are several family trees on ancestry that haven't got them after 1881 either. Ellen married Frank Bull in Staffs in 1891, Sarah married Oliver Bruce there in 1897, and it looks as if Patrick married there in 1898, while in 1911, unmarried Catherine was in Notts. Did Michael and Mary go back to Ireland? Have you tried the 1901 Irish census? (

have you ruled out these Mary CONNAUGHTON deaths
