Hi

I'm searching for some information about my grandmothers ancestery. I'm looking for the mother of her gandmother Margaret Graham (born in 1870 in Doncaster) who was married to Charles Firth (on 24/12/1890 in Hunslet). Her father was John Matthew Graham.
Hope someone can help me.

I can only find those two births.

I can't find the family in 1871 or 1881 census.

I can't find the Graham & Grady marriage in England so Ireland ??

Is Margaret's father listed as John Matthew or just Matthew?

Is it possible the family came from Ireland and children born before Margaret were born in Ireland ?

On Margaret's birthcertificate is name and surename of the father is Matthew Graham.

I think there was only Margaret and her brother John Graham (the one who was born in 1872).
