I would start by ordering a copy of the 1856 marriage certificate. The marriage was registered in Lurgan 1856 Volume 5, page 525. You can get a photocopy of that cert from GRO Roscommon for Ôé¼4, provided you quote the place, year, Volume and page number on the order form. www.groireland.ie/

The certificate should give you your ancestorÔÇÖs townland (address) as well as his fatherÔÇÖs name and occupation. You may be able to use that to locate relevant wills on the PRONI website, and perhaps also locate the family on Griffiths Valuation. You may also want to search the parish records for siblings and children. Bear in mind that the tradition was to marry in the wifeÔÇÖs church so if the couple came from different parishes or different denominations, the church where they married might not be the husbandÔÇÖs own church. But it could be. Details of the surviving parish records are on the PRONI website:
