Ebenezer Ure was a paymaster in the civil service, based in Dublin castle, according to Hester's baptism [actually a junior clerk in the office in the post office directory 1858].
I see he served a term in prison for assaulting his wife & daughter in 1861 when he appears to have lost his good job.
The marriage announcement refers to the late Ebenezer although he is not recorded as deceased on the marriage certs & I can't find a death cert in Ireland.
He was a government servant on her sister's Helena's baptism in 1859 & a government official in 1895 when she married.
Maybe O.K stands for something like 'Office of the Keeper of the State Records'? - that was located in Dublin castle; otherwise could he have emigrated to somewhere like 'Outer Kenya' or some such far flung place?
