Mary McMahon was aged 27 years in 1855 according to the information provided by her first husband, Michael Flanagan, in the birth certificate of their son John. John was Mary's second child. She had a daughter already who was living in 1855. Mary McMahon or Flanagan was recorded as born in County Fermanagh Ireland.
In her husband's poor law relief application of 1888, Mary McMahon was recorded as 46 years old and a native of County Fermanagh Ireland, though her husband did not know her specific residence there. They had no family alive. Mary's parents were recorded as Pat McMahon, a farmer, and Bridget Flanigan, both dead.
When Mary Goldie died in 1898, her death certificate recorded her as "Pauper Widow of 1st Michael Flannigan 2nd John Goldie". Her age was recorded as 58 years, though this is almost certainly a serious underestimate since her first marriage took place in 1852. Her parents were deceased. 3 4 6
Joseph Quin, a friend, of 18 Monteith Row, was the informant of Mary's death. 4
Mary married Michael FLANAGAN on 10 May 1852 in St Andrew's RC Chapel, Glasgow, Scotland.1 (Michael FLANAGAN was born about 1828 6.)
