Clogher Parish Marriage Announcements 1823-69
Marriages recorded in Clogher parish, Co. Tyrone, Northern Ireland, extracted from personal notices inserted in the STRABANE MORNING POST, LONDONDERRY SENTINEL and LONDONDERRY STANDARD

"February 13, 1836 At his house, White Cottage, Waterside [Londonderry], on Thursday, by the Rev. Alexander James McCarron, P.P., GEORGE L.S. WRAY, ESQ., to MARY ANN, daughter of the late DOCTOR McDOWELL, of Clogher, county Tyrone."
 
The 1836 marriage notice was the only thing I could find.

The Sydney Morning Herald - Fri 23 Nov 1866 p.7
MARRIAGES
WRAY - BREATHOUR.-November 12th, by special license, at Sofala, by the Rev. G. E. Styles, George Albert, son of the late George L. S. Wray, Esq., formerly of the U.S. Navy, and more recently of Londonderry, Ireland, to Anna Maria, daughter of Mr. James Breathour, Parramatta.

If George senior died in Ireland it must have been before 1864.

Looking for George's birth and details on his parents, thanks.
