Marriage of Nancy Beggs to Mr. Boyd, Letitia S. Beggs to Mr. Owen

Classification: Query
Surnames: Beggs/Boyd/Owens
I have the will of Mary Beggs, widow, of Killyglen, Co. Antrim. She died May 6, 1865. She names her daughter Nancy Beggs now Boyd. I found the family on the 1851 census fragments and Nancy is single, age 22 so born abt 1829. So married 1851-1856. Could anyone find that marriage to Mr. Boyd. I think the husband of Mary was William as under deaths since 1841, there is William, age 77, head of family, died winter 1846.
Also named is Letitia S. Beggs now Owens. She is also single, age 18, on the 1851 so married 1851-1856.She would be born abt. 1833. Can anyone find her marriage?
Thanks for any help
Peggy

Thanks again, Maureen. My ggg grandfather was Samuel Carson Boyd, born 1780 in Co. antrim, someplace, mother Jenny Carson. His daughter Margaret Boyd married Thomas Beggs in 1831 in First Donegore Church, Parish of Kilbride. So I have been trying to sort out these Beggs and Boyds, using wills and census fragments and some family info. But the Beggs are numerous. I'd more so like to link the Boyds up. At the moment, I am trying to figure out if the Margaret Beggs who died March 2, 1890 is the above mentioned Margaret Boyd. Quite possible.

Yes, does look like a second marriage for Letitia. She was single in 1851, Owens in 1856, and then Alinn in 1861. You have been so helpful. Thanks very much.

Looks very likely. As she was married to Mr. Owens before her mother's will of 1856. You are right, once again and thanks.
