Hi Dianne I saw your request of December 2002 on this site. I am in Adelaide and do free lookups for people wanting information from our records re ancestors who came here.I don't know if anyone has answered your reply yet, or if you are still interested in information, but I'm forwarding the followingJUST IN CASE!!
Mark (record spells his Chr. name Marik) Burton 26yrs of age, single, father's name not recorded married 3rd September 1853 to Bridget McGahan, aged 20yrs, single, father's name not recorded at St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church, Morphett Vale Dis. Adelaide. ref b17 p16 symbols "A" denoting an amendment has been made to the original record, and "V" denoting a variation in spelling appears on the marriage record.
Our marriage records go from 1842-1937.There is NO marriage here recorded for a Bridget Burton to John Devitt.In fact, there is no marriage record here at all for a Bridget Burton.
Mark Burton, aged 28yrs, place of death not recorded, died 19th March 1856. Informant not recorded. Dis. Adelaide ref b3 p191
We do have a marriage record of a Bridget McKee to MICHAEL Devitt in 1895 if you think that may be of any relevance. I am aware through searching records for years, that the information was often recorded by people who had difficulty with the accent of the person providing the information.I realise that to you and me, McGann doesn't sound much like McKee at all, but it could have sounded like that at the time to the person taking down the information.
If you think this may be a possibility, let me know as i have details of 5 children born to Bridget & Michael.
Please don't hesitate to get back to me if there is anything else I can do for you.
