Re: KERR, c,1870, Fermanagh, Ireland

Hi David,

I donít know who James KERRís parents are & I donít know if there were any other children in addition to Richard.

My sole source of information is the following marriage record which I found to my great surprise early last week - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FG8D-S5C. A response to a post I made on another forum suggested that I should purchase a marriage certificate as this will include bride & groomís place of residence (i.e. the townland).

Here is some additional information about the ARMSTRONG family that may be of interest:

Sarah who was the 3nd oldest was born between 1840 & 1844 - a newspaper report for her youngest sisterís marriage places Sarah as the 2nd oldest daughter (refer below).

Sarah had at least 5 siblings - James, Mary Jane, Ellen, William and Hamilton. All of these immigrated to South Australia (SA) - James & Mary Jane arrived in 1855 while the other 3 arrived in 1866.

Sarahís mother died in the early 1850s as her father, Thompson, re-married in 1856 (refer https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/FGCL-9GK).

Sarahís 1st cousins, James & Sarah GODBER (parents: George & Sarah ARMSTRONG) & Sarahís husband, George WILSON immigrated to the Australian colony of Victoria. A newspaper report of Georgeís death advised that there was family in both Adelaide & New Zealand.

As Sarah & husband do not appear in any Irish records after 1870, I have been wondering if they may have immigrated somewhere; say Scotland, England, North America or even, New Zealand.

I have a question for you: Your wifeís parents & grandparents - do you know the names of the townlands where they live/lived? You can send me a private message if you wish.

Regards

David
