Lucy McAvoy b. circa 1834

Lucy McAvoy, an Antrim native, married James McKay, a native of the city of Ayr in Scotland. The wedding took place on 17 August 1850 in St Patrick's RC Church Belfast, Rev. Crinnian officiating. Lucy wenr over to Scotland with her merchant seaman husband and raised a large family


In a Poor Law Application of 1902 she gives her birthplace as Saltcoats, Ayrshire, Scotland, but in all other official documents, she gives her birthplace as County Antrim. Her parents were John McAvoy and Elizbeth Campbell. Lucy's parents also spent time in Saltcoats and had children there, but had several children in Ireland.

I believe Lucy to be sister to my great grandfather, Thomas McAvoy b. circa 1830 in Saltcoats. I am trying to find the birthplace of Lucy McAvoy and seek researchers who may be on the same hunt. :?:
