Marriage certificate of Annie Finn and Thomas McKiernan

Jamie Evans has sent a copy of the marriage certificate of Thomas McKiernan and Annie Finn which took place at St Chads RC Cathedral in Birmingham on 3rd April 1893.

Annie Finn was the daughter of Patrick and Catherine Finn. Patrick was the brother of my great great great grandfather Martin. Annie was born in Birmingham in 1868. Thomas and Annie McKiernan went to live in Cleveland, Ohio along with 3 of her sisters and their partners.

One of their children was the lady who became the nun in Cleveland.

The marriage certificate reads:

3rd April 1892, Thomas McKiernan aged 25 marries Annie Finn, aged 24.
Both single, address given for both is 5 Court, Lancaster Street.
Thomas McKiernan's occupation (looks like) wire worker.
Annie's father is Patrick Finn a labourer and Thomas's father is Thomas McKiernan, a painter.

Jamie also provides some addittional information about Mary and Fred Payne:

"I had a look at the Voters list for 18, Park Road Moseley for 1932, it showed that Fred and Jayne Payne and their daughter and her husband, Hughes were all living there together at that time.

Also in the 1920 Voters List, James and Emily Ratchford at 7 Pritchett Street, Aston, were simply registered as BATCHFORD and they gave at least a son in the First War."
