35. Marcus Langford4 McCAUSLAND (Dominick3, Marcus2, Col. Robert1) was born in Ireland circa 1775.

He married Maria KENNEDY circa 1800 in Ireland. Maria was born circa 1780 in Ireland. Maria was the daughter of John KENNEDY and Elizabeth COLE. There is no reference in Burke's that John Kennedy had a daughter named Maria. However, the 1958 edition does mention that he had an unnamed daughter who married Marcus Langford McCausland. In John Kennedy's 1801 codicil to his will he mentions "...my daughter Maria's father-in-law, Dominick McCausland..." . Various references in Hodson's "Officers of the Bengal Army" to the McCauslands and Kennedys make it clear that Maria Kennedy was the mother of Lt. Gen. John Kennedy McCausland. Therefore, information in the McCausland entry in the 1971 Burke's "Landed Gentry of Ireland" stating that Marcus Langford McCausland's wife was "Elizabeth, yr dau of George Crookshank Kennedy-Skipton" certainly appears to be incorrect.

Marcus Langford McCAUSLAND and Maria KENNEDY had the following children:
