Hi Kingjohn - I still don't have the marriage date or location for Modesto and Mary Jane. They are just referenced as parents on children's marriage registrations or death certificates.

Thank you again for the diligence with the Silo surname!

Hi Peter,
I might suggest a far better option: the Ulster Historical Foundation which can be found online.
