Hi Ralph, thank you again for your kind help. I can't be certain sure of the birth year of either Jeremiah Delaney or his wife Maria Nolan as the info I have is taken from UK census records.eg: 1871 Jeremiah aged 35, Maria aged 40 1881 Jeremiah aged 41, Maria aged 31 1891 Jeremiah aged 46, Maria aged 36
totally confusing all round but definitely my lot!
I know for sure, though, that they married on 1st May 1870 in Liverpool and marriage doc shows:- Groom aged 28 yrs, Bride aged 26 years therefore giving their respective birth years as 1842 & 1844 both born Ireland.
Groom's father is John Delaney (deceased), Bride's father is Patrick Nolan
That is where I became confused because when I spoke with the Parish priest in Ballinakill he showed us the records and told us that Jeremiah's father was Jeremiah Delaney b. 1822 Laois and the grandparents were James Delaney b. 1800? & Mary Brennan of Graignrhowne.
