Has anyone got any information to help me in my family research,please.
My cousin married a Schmidt, her name was Mary Theresa. She used the name Theresa as her `christian` name though and was listed in the California Death Records for 15 June 1984 as Theresa M Schmidt. Her Parents were Gallagher (father) and Keegan(mothers maiden name )
It is her mother Mary Gallagher (nee Keegan,born Co.Durham,England 1886)who I am trying to find death records/details on,but obviously I am very interested too in all her children. We do not know what happened to her or her family.
We have records of all the family up to 1930 in Illinois,and there were even letters from them up until 1943/5 but after that absolutely nothing !!! I have managed to find death records for 3 of their 6 children,and Theresa M SCHMIDTb.1917 was the elder of 2 girls, the other being Sally Camp ( nee Sarah Gallagher b.1921/2 ?).
2 of their 4 brothers died in Riverside,California 1989,and I have got an obit. record for James V Gallagher b.1919,illinois. He lived in Hemet for 4 years prior to his death there. It mentions Sally Camp from Desert Springs,CA. It also mentions James`s stepsons,Richard Gilbert of Quail Valley, and Michael Gilbert of Hemet
I hope someone recognises any of these names and would be kind enough to reply and hopefully help me in this seemingly impossible task of finding my missing family.
thankyou cathy
