I am searching for information re: McGovern Family. Patrick married Ellen Ryan, daughter of Edmund Ryan and Margaret Ryan ( long-time resident in monona, Clayton, Co. Iowa). She was living at home on the 1880 census- Patrick and Ellen had their 1st child Feb 1883 in South Dakota.
I do not know how they met, but, today I found a Thomas and Mary McGovern in Monona on the 1880 census- with a Martin McGovern age 61 living with them. I am wondering if that was Patrick's father and brother.
