All information is spotty. The James Duffy who was married to Mary Ann Woodburn can be found with wife and 4 children in the 1870 Cuyahoga Falls, Summitt county, Ohio, USA census. In the 1870 census, he is 43 and a shoemaker. In the 1880 census, same place, Mary Ann (as Marian) is still married, but no James (because James is in the Cleveland census in an asylum suffering from mania. This was probably due to diabetis. By the 1900 census, he is back home and says that he was born in Ireland in March of 1827 and aged 73 (so matches all his previous years of birth given in the censuses of 1827). Mary says she was born in July of 1832 in Ireland. Interestingly, Isaac says he came to the States in 1880, which would explain why he wasn't in the 1870 census with his parents. Frederick says he emigrated in 1864 to the USA. James and Mary Ann seem confused as they say they emigrated to the US in 1850, but have only been in the US 36 years (which = 1864). They also say they have been married 50 years and have had 6 children, all surviving.
This from the Ohio death records on the LDS site. Mary Ann died May 28, 1912 and Isaac died February 20, 1917. There is a plaque for James and Mary and sons Isaac and Frederick in the Oakwood cemetery in Cuyahoga Falls, Summit county, Ohio (which is logical, for that is where they lived from 1864 until their deaths - except for Isaac).
Evidence is circumstantial - both James and Mary were sponsors for the 1840 baptism of ELiza's first child, and were witnesses at Eliza Duffy (McVey's) 1853 re-marriage to Daniel Thompson in Bytown (after her first husband William McVey's early death in 1850). This was from Daphne’s Forum email in July 2011 on Ancestry.com.
It makes sense because one of the sons of Mary Anne and James Duffy were named Andrew Cochran Duffy, b. 1860. I believe that Mary Anne died shortly after his birth.
