My great great grandfather was Charles O'Brien from Killyclogher, outisde Omagh in Co. Tyrone, Ireland. He married twice and one of his daughters from his first marriage to Madge Sharkey from Co. Donegal (perhaps) married my great grandfather William Donaghy in Omagh on 14 February 1901 - her name was Margaret O'Brien.
Margaret's sister, Bridget, marred Charles Ferris from Mullaghmore, Omagh. Charles O'Brien's first wife Madge died and he married again, this time to Ellen McGahey (nee Bradley) from Omagh. She had been in the US with her husband, but returned a widow with several children in tow. Charles and Ellen then went on to have more children. Charles was supposed to have spent a considerable length of time in the US supposedly as a gold-miner before marrying. He died after being knocked of his bicycle on Easter Sunday, but I'm not sure of the year but it was well after 1910. If this sounds at all familiar, I'd love to hear from you and swap info if possible.
