IFHF is VERY expensive and very little use. Start with where you are and work back to how you got there. Are Charles and Ann grandparents? Great greats? Did they establish the family where you are? If they are the ones that came from Ireland, look for them on the Ship's Lists along with any kids that may have come with them. Ships lists sometimes show the last residence before embarkation. Maguire is most common in Co. Fermanagh. We used to own it. But the name is pretty widespread in Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Irish Times website will show you the distribution of the name.
Good luck. And if you happen to run across Thomas Maguire and Lucy Patterson who lived in the townland of Cleggan, Parish of Cleenish, Co. Fermanagh rom 1820 to 1847...
