Default Great Aunt Sallie ... Nightmare!

Over a decade ago, I gave up searching for the birth and general info re my dad's scary aunt (Sallie Margaret).
I've had another go at it and am getting nowhere.

She was the youngest child, born, I assume, in Tallaght, Dublin c1913 (although I think she changed this to 1916).

Her mother was Rose Connor (nee Lahlor 1880, Dublin).
Rose's husband was John Connor (1871, Carlow).

The story is that Sallie's father was not John Connor and was either American or Canadian and he paid for her education. Where she was educated is unknown. Maybe abroad? Dunno.
Sallie often mentioned Uncle Jack and we assumed this was husband no.1.
Not true.
Uncle Jack was Colonel S John Channing Pearce (sp) and we don't know what the relationship was.
When Uncle Jack died, Sallie married his best friend, Patrick Wilmot Beresford Meredith Roe.

They lived in Colombo, Ceylon for many years, managing a tea plantation, until the Brits were kicked out and they moved back to England, eventually settling just outside Oxford.

I have a pic which looks like their wedding and I think it's dated 1949 but I have no idea which country it was in.


Looked at Irish stuff but she doesn't show up.
Any ideas where I try next please?

TIA

You need this site for her birth:

https://www.irishgenealogy.ie/en/

It's not working at the moment though. Is this the site you looked at when you said, "Looked at Irish stuff but she doesn't show up."? Did you find her siblings or her 'parents' marriage?

Yes I looked on that one today and a couple of others.

I already had her siblings and I have it that her dob was 10th Oct 1913 but I've no idea where I found that.
Sallie was not always reliable ! Lol.

Can't see Rose and John's marriage but my notes say that on 1911 census they were married for 13 years.

The civil registration (England and Wales) death index has Sallie Margaret Roe death registered Mar 1991 Oxford, date of birth 10 Oct 1913.

You were lucky to get on that site today!! It's not been available for most people for about three days. Are you saying there is no birth registration for her?

Was her mother's maiden name spelled Lahlor on the birth records for all her siblings?

And on a passenger list returning to the UK in 1959, her date of birth is 10 Oct 1916.

Ah
Thank you Kate. I have a vague recollection of seeing her name on a passenger list but wasn't sure if it was her, because of the name Rita.

I lost some of my notes last December when my house was flooded.

Will begin again tomorrow.

I think we will have to wait till the Irish Civil Records site is fixed, whenever that is.
