I am looking for parents of Frances Moore

+1 vote
Frances was born 1852.  Also her husband Robert Watson, b 1818.  Been looking for months and can not locate their siblings or parents.  Any hints are greatly appreciated.

Where did they live. ?????
Looks like Northern Ireland

I don’t know where she was born.  I am looking for information.  My Robert Watson is married to Frances Moore, not Frances White.  Frances is my great grandmother.  They lived in county Tyrone.  I have their children but no information on Frances or Roberts siblings or parents.
Robert and Frances married in Drumragh, Tyrone I believe from information from my grandmother.
Hi Helen found a marriage for a Fanny Moore to a Robert Watson 26 Jan 1872 Omagh and found several children as well mother Frances Moore Watson father Robert but they are only on the Irish select records.

Ok, this is my Robert and Frances.  They lived in Omagh so possibly the Drumragh is wrong.  The marriage date is correct.  I have the children but no siblings of Robert or Frances.
Drumragh is an electoral ward in Omagh. So a marriage would have been registered in Omagh even if they lived in Drumagh.
Hooray! I have found their marriage register entry ONLINE.  I hope it comes out for you:

If not - Robert's father was John Watson, and Fannie's father was John Moore, both farmers.

Robert was "of full age" and Fannie was 16.
Birth registration in Ireland did not start until 1864. So you are looking for baptism records, and if the census I linked below is correct, they were Presbyterian, so you could see what records are available in the area.
Great, I cross posted there before I saw your answer!
The census agrees with the marriage details, Frances was only 16 when she was married.

Er...Frances MOORE, not Frances White, so you don't need to go to James Waite and Catherine Craven...

Is this her in the 1901 Irish census, county Tyrone? Born about 1855. but has a daughter Jane the right age. http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Tyrone/Clanabogan/Botera__Lower/1745423/

That looks right. I believe Jane is Helen's grandmother.
Yes, Jane is my grandmother,  But I knew her as Jennie.

Did you see they are in the 1911 census too and there is a son Robert who is not on your Wikitree I think?


Yes, I have Robert and a few others that I haven’t put on the tree yet.  I have birthdates but not death dates.  I’m still working on them.  It seems that the children at times were scattered about.
Thank you for the information.  Every little bit helps.
