1. On her marriage record to JAMES MOODY in Quebec City Canada in 1828, my gt-gt-gaandmother was listed as ELIZABETH BYRNE/BURNS (could be a trnscription error) as the transcriber was French speaking). 2. In 1855, on her daughter's marriage record, ELIZABETH was named ELIZA MORAN. I do not know why the discrepancy and would like to find out why these names differ. I have no other documents. 3. On the marriage record of ELIZABETH BYRNE to JAMES MOODY, ELIZABETH's mother is said to come fron Co. Sligo in Ireland. Was she born there? Did she live there when she emigrated to Canada? I am searching for this answer. We believe Elizabeth BYRNE/MORAN was born in the early 1800s (perhaps in 1810 -1811). From her marriage record to JAMES MOODY we know JAMES' parents were from EAST LOTHIAN in SCOTLAND (very difficult to make out the writing on the record) . We have reason to believe he was born in East Lothian also, in 1805. We do not know when or where ELIZABETH AND JAMS met. They both obviously emigrated to Canada some time between 1810 and 1828. Did they come alone? with their family? They DID marry in 1828 in QUEBEC CITY, CANADA. I do know they remained in Canada, settled here and raised their family. They are my paternal gt-gt-grandparents and I was born in Canada where my father was also born. I would appreciate ANY and ALL information that couod help me find out more about ELIZABETH BYRNE/BURNS/MORAN. I have quite a bit of information on the descendants of ELIZABETH BYRNE/MORAN and JAMES MOODY which I would be happy to share.
Many thanks, margo huc (nee joncas)
