"On the 20th of June 1888 I baptised John born the 20th day of May last of the legitimato marriage of Patrick McCarney and Sara McCarney, sponsor, Mary Hughes" This register is unusual in that when a later marriage occured involving the child, it was written across the baptism notation. However, when the marriage was written across this John, it was actually the marriage belonging to John, son of Terrance, who is baptised on page 130 of the register. John does not appear in the RC 1890 census, and must have died young
