He was my Paternal Great Grandfather James McMahon was a Tailor by trade who joined the Army and was noted on his children's certificates as a Tailor, then Tailor - Worker Army Pensioner on Census . But there is no sign of him or the family in 1901, but they show again in 1911 in Aldershot, then after the 1911 census which showed him in Aldershot, Farnham, Hampshire - ie; near the Army Camp, nothing again. He married Phillis Emma Sampson in Brighton, Sussex in 1885 (when or why he moved to Sussex I have no idea) and according to his Marriage Certificate, his father was John McMahon - no further details for John or his wife! My Grandfather George Albert Allen (Royal Inniskilling Dragoon Guards)and James daughter Phillis Mary Hannah McMahon (born UK) were married in India in 1922 and James son James Sampson McMahon (born UK) and his wife were also married in India in 1921 so Army links again! In 1930 James Widow was residing in UK with daughter Phillis Mary Hannah and Son-in-law George and family. I have no idea when James and his parents? moved to the UK or when he died? or his mother's name? or further parents details? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
