    Also looking for information on Mary Kincaid married to David Weir. Her father was Shelburn Kincaid but not sure if this is correct as I can find no birth for her in Jane Moore/Shelburn Kincaid's family, therefore not sure how she fits in; however the place of marriage fits, Manorcunningham, Raymochy Parish in Co.
    Donegal

    Also still looking on any information on Mary Wray b. 17.03.1892 in Tullyannan. Think she was a domestic to the McNieces's but lost track after that. She could have married.

    Thank you.

    I looked for the Moore Ė McMonagle marriage on 4.4.1848. Canít see it in the civil records. Could it have been an RC ceremony in Raymoghy? If so, it should be in the on-line records but I donít see it. There was only 1 RC marriage in Raymoghy in April 1848 so no great likelihood of missing it:

    Whatís the source for the marriage date?

    You say you canít find a Mary Kincade, whose father was Shelburn. Thatís such a rare name that Iíd be inclined to think it is the same family, and if Mary was marrying in 1876 her age would allow her to be the daughter of the 1851 marriage. Her birth was obviously before the start of statutory birth registration, so you are relying on baptism records. What was Shelburnís occupation and denomination? Could he have moved around a little and she be baptised in a different parish, or one whose records for the 1850s are lost? The odd baptism did get missed from parish records. Thatís another possible explanation.

    What was William Mooreís occupation and where did he live? What was Janeís townland on her marriage certificate? Thatíd be the starting point for searching for her family? What denomination was she? (I note it was a Registry Office marriage. That often points to a mixed marriage).

    I had a quick look for Mary Wray/Ray but canít see her for certain after 1911 in Derry. Thereís a marriage in Derry on 23.4.1926 between Mary Wray and John McFeeters. You might want to pay to see it on the GRONI site, to see if thatís her.

    I assume this is part of your family in 1911. Joseph Shillone Wray is a mis-transcription of Shelburn.

    Evidently the parents were both dead if Joseph is looking after his 2 siblings. Joseph Shelburn Wray married Martha Francis Gardiner on 19.7.1906 at St Johnston Presbyterian.

    Perhaps this is Emily Wray in 1911:

    Thanks Elwynn. Shelburn Kincaid was C of I and was a Mason. Ann & Williams marriage came from Family Search but I don't have any further information sorry. Re Mary- looking at baptism records but anything on the marriage to David would be appreciated especially children. I have Emily Wray thank you. Will get the Mary Wray-John McFeeter's marriage thank you for that-I couldn't see a Mary Wray. William Moore was a labourer so moved about I presume. I need to have a look at the marriage of Jane to find the information you asked for. Thank you so much Maggie

    Masons used to move about a lot to follow the work, and so it may be that some children were baptised in different parishes. Not all Church of Ireland (COI) parish records have survived the 1922 fire, and of those that do still exist, not all are on-line. PRONI in Belfast has a copy of all the surviving COI records for Co. Donegal and you can see from their church record catalogue what exists. But the records themselves are not on-line and a personal visit is required to view them.
