Happy Mother's Day to all you Moms!
Here is what I received for Mother's Day, one day early - I was at the FHC
yesterday and I finally found the marriage of Robert Stanford to Lydia
Wallis (also found in other records as Wallace). It was listed in Pallot's
Marriage Index and only the year was given (1800) and the church: St. George
in the East.
Rene tells me that even if I obtain the record, it probably will not tell me
the parents of the bride and groom but at least I have a year and a parish
to start looking for their son Joseph's birth record - sometime around 1808
according to Canadian census records.
The other tidbit I found was the marriage record for Lt. Maurice Shea to
Miss Mary O'Connor in Boherbue, County Cork, Ireland in February 1824 (still
no full date but at least I now know where to look for the record). I also
found the baptism record for their daughter Julia (even though she was
mistakenly indexed as Julia Sheahan) on May 16, 1837 in the same location.
At least now I know where to look for the other children's births/baptisms.
So I am busy doing my favourite hobby here on Mother's Day and entering the
new information I obtained yesterday!
