Re: Martin & Mary Donlon Co.Arrmaugh circa 1840 HELP!
I recently received the Civil War service record for Thomas DONLAN (my gggrandfather).

The record shows that he married my gggrandmother Catherine GRADY at St Columbkille's church on Market St in Brighton Mass on 1 Jan 1857.
The witnesses were Martin DONLAN and Dora MULLEN.
Both Thomas and Catherine were Catholics who immigrated from Ireland.I do not know what county they were from.
If you consider that the surname spelling may have variations, and that Martin may have been relatively mobile due to his occupation as a seafarer, then we may want to explore a further connection.
