Re: Missing marriage
Have you found John Parnell on the census? He is a groom in 1871 when he and Martha are together, but from 1881 to 1901 is a patient in hospital I think, described as a colt trainer or horse breaker. Perhaps something happened to him after the census and before son John was born and they did not have time to get married? He seems to have been incarcerated until his death.
