William A. McCULLOUGH -Mary Jane POYNTZE(Points)

Surnames: McCULLOUGH /POYNTZE(POINTS)
Am looking for information on my great grand parents as given on my grandfathers marriage registration in Ontario Canada. They are named as William A. McCULLOUGH and Mary Jane POYNTZE spelling could be wrong on this but that is what is listed on the registration. They were living in Tandragee, County Armagh when my grandfather was born and that was about 1892 . Grandpa was rather fluid about the year of his birth but this is my best guess. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, LuAnn

but it lists a Robert William with wife Mary Jane in Tandragee 1901

Thank you for this link. Other information I have indicates a Robert William, although his wife is listed as Mary Ann or Mary Jane Schmidt. And I cant imagine my grandfather giving false information for his marriage license. There is always the possibility that the license was misread in transcription. In any case neither Poyntze or Schmidt is popping any "little green leaves" at Ancestry so I guess I will just have to keep digging , Thanks for your help. LuAnn

You are so lucky to have these details, we left in the 1830's and there is only the sound of crickets when I seek out more info -I'm jealous!
You might even have living relatives in Ireland.

Certainly not a great deal of easy info out of Ireland at the moment I must say however I know that our canadian archives are/were working with the Irish archives to develop online records . It is a good thing that we can throw our little crumbs out into cyberspace for other kind souls to look over. I can only hope that at some point I will be able to return the favour to someone who is muddling about in the dark. Cheers! LuAnn
