(About 1827-Before 1922)
McCAFFERTY, Charles 1
The 1855 birth certificate of his daughter Mary recorded Charles Macafferty as an agricultural labourer, aged 29 years. His birthplace was County Donegal, Ireland. The certificate also recorded the couple's marriage in Campsie in 1855, and that they had one daughter living.
A marriage between a Charles McCafferty and a Margaret McLean took place in Barony parish, Lanarkshire, Scotland on 17 May 1846. This is a possible for the first marriage of Charles, at least until further information is available.
Charles married Sarah QUIGLEY, daughter of Michael QUIGLEY and Mary McCALLION, on 25 April 1855 in Lennoxtown Campsie, Stirlingshire, Scotland.1 (Sarah QUIGLEY was born about 1835 in County Derry, Ireland 2 and died 18 March 1922 at 1.30 pm in 11 Dungoyne Gardens, Glasgow, Scotland 3.). The cause of her death was senile decay.
The marriage after banns was celebrated according to the rites and forms of the Roman Catholic Church. The celebrant was John Gillon, Catholic clergyman at Lennoxtown. The witnesses were John Quigley and Condy Gallagher.
