Hey I can't find this marriage on IrishGeneology. I know this particular Mary Emigrated to the US but i initially thought it was after Marriage but is there anyone that could search any US Records? I haven't signed up to any US memberships yet!

She was Mary (o')Sullivan born 1878.
She was married twice,(first husband died soon after mariage) so she married again later on in life in the States.
1st Marriage ??? O'Rielly
2nd Marriage James Moffat.
They had no known children.

Looking for any Marriage records of either. Also USA death/emmigration records may show.

Thanks so much!!!!!!

Sorry.
Mary was from Tirnaspideoige, Inchigeela/Macroom, West Cork.
Her Parents were Con O'Sullivan and Kate/Catherine nee Luc(e)y.
Sorry, that is all info i have.
Other than i know she moved to Us at some stage in her life.
Its pathetic thats all i know!
Limited info on both husbands.
They didn't seem to have married in Ireland as i have checked!

Nah, it's not pathetic - it's often the way with these brick walls that info is limited. They wouldn't be brick walls otherwise!
But it helps to give as much info as you can to help others help you with your query.

The second marriage occurred in Chelsea, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, in 1917.

This is likely her in the 1930 U.S. Federal Census (I have not traced forward from 1917 to verify).

Same street address in 1940, husband James is a widow, so she died between 1930 and 1940.

You'll likely need to create a free Familysearch account to view the records.

There is a death index entry on Ancestry for who might be her:

Name: Mary Moffett
Death Date: 1938
Death Place: Chelsea, Massachusetts, USA
Volume Number: 31
Page Number: 208
Index Volume Number: 97
Reference Number: F63.M363 v.97

You can apply for this record from the Chelsea City Clerk's Office.
