There is an Edward Jennings found in Church Street, Rathfriland in 1870. He was a spirit and porter dealer. He married Margaret Leathem, daughter of Andrew Leathem and Marion English. They had three children, William [b.1865], Sophia [b.1867] and Mary Ann [b.1872]. Mary Ann died in 1874 aged 2. It’s possible that William also died young. Sophia married Hugh Craig and they emigrated to New York as did Sophia’s mother Margaret. Edward had died in 1876.
It has not been possible to confirm if Edward Jennings of Rathfriland is the same Edward Daniel Jennings of North Street, Newry.
