I also found out Mary and James lived in 8 Anne Street, Greenock, Scotland were they had another son Matthew who was born May 18th 1874. The family may have returned to Ireland.

It looks so peaceful but it would be a little too quiet I think ... quiet but too quiet for me.

My great grandparents William Hull and Berlina Crozier were married in Lurgan on November 12, 1859. Is there any way I could find out where the records of this marriage are recorded?
