I seems to much of a coincidence to have two people named the same in the same street. Do you know, or could guess, the dates you Essie McBurney live in Gilford? I'm told Essie had a sister Sarah who may be the Sarah on IGI born 1879 to William McBurney and Margaret Thompson in Gilford. It could be that Essie was widower and re-married. However I know Thomas Wright was still alive in 1947 as he's on my grandfather's will - so even if she did re-marry then she could not have had any children and I have been unable to find a marriage between Thomas Wright & Esther Anthony on any database.
