Did she marry in Scotland or in Ireland. www.familysearch.org
has good Scotland records. Perhaps her family came from there originally and when her parents died she moved to Scotland to family. Many Scots farmers went to Ireland as farmers and it was part of a government agenda to have more Protestants in Ireland than catholics. These huge emmigrations to Ireland go by the name 'plantations'. It wasn't trees.
At the time of Ann's birth in Ireland records prior to 1864 are all parish records. There are some early Protestant
marriages from 1845-1862. On an old CD set from the Latter Day Saints there are marriages from 1804-1881 for the surname Scanlon. No matches. There is a gap between 1837-1847 if Protestant and there would be no records
for Catholic births.
There are births in Sligo from 1829 for the name Ann Scanlan
Any after that would be too late for a daughter born in 1848
the average age for marriage being 20.
