    You don't say which country you are researching, but looking at the names it seems likely to be Scotland!

    Is this record from the IGI relevant:
    JOHN FRENCH / MARY ANN MCKINSAY
    Marriage: 22 JUL 1849 Lanark, Scotland

    well hopefully you have a copy of that marriage. i assume you have some idea when and where john and mary died? if they died in scotland, their parents names should be on the death cert. i see john was a convict, well depending on what state john ended up in, his death may mention parents. his convict records could be detailed and mention family from what i understand of them.

    mary's parents may be in the scottish census, if they died after 1855, there should be death certs, and their parents would be mentioned.
