Sorry, no marriage listed in Lancs Online Parish Clerk records
I think Cathedral was a rego area in Manchester and people were not actually married in the cathedral itself.
For a look up you may need the actual church.
I'm not sure if the record, when you find it, would show if the bride was a widow but I stand corrected.
For the peeps, the marriage is in IGI.
You may have to go to your local Mormons centre and order the film.
Cheers

Hello again Astwood
There is a James in 1841 census wife Elizabeth living in Salford with a stack of kiddies :)
Not sure if he's your James as eldest child is 20, however ages were rounded off in this census.
I looked in Mormons Labs/Beta site and it just brought up the same marriage as in IGI.

Hi Astwood
I'm confused which is easy for me :)
If Betty Moss married in 1824, how come she has a daughter Mary bn 1833?
Is Betty not her mother? Is she the sister of Richard and caring for Mary her niece??
Thanks

I am 90% sure that betty whittaker nee moss was
richard mosses mother and mary her granddaughter
In the 1851 census they are living with john wilson
and his wife ( bettys daughter ) and mary king (moss)
so mary is john wilsons niece All the information i have
found all seems to link up I have mary moss christened
4 august 1833 heaton norris father richard and richard
was christened 1807 gorton parents john moss & betty
a bit later the family moved to heaton norris so it seems
to be right any thoughts would be welcome
thanks a lot

Hi
Have another look at 1841 census, the black line denotes the end of the household after Whittakers, then we have Lavinia Jones & Mary Moss, another black line to end the household.
I'm not sure as this census doesn't give relationships.
I'd like others in the forum to have a look and see what they think.
cheers

btw James is 70 Betty 55 & Mary 15??
