I am seeking information on the family of Michael & Bridget Dwyer (I do not know Bridget's maiden name). They resided in Waukesha County (Pewaukee), Wisconsin and later in Sauk County, Wisconsin. Michael was born in Ireland sometime between 1818-1823. He died in 1890 in Sauk County, Wisconsin. Bridget was born circa 1830 in Ireland, and I believe she died in 1895 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and was buried in Pewaukee, Waukesha County, Wisconsin. According to census records, they had the following children, all born in Wisconsin: Thomas; b. circa 1860; James; b. circa 1862; John; b. circa 1863; Andrew; b. circa 1865; Michael; b. circa 1867; William; b. circa 1868; Mary; b. circa 1870; Dennis; b. circa 1871; and Katherine; b. circa 1874 (she married James Welch).

I am hoping to find Bridget's maiden name, her marriage to Michael, and the birth date of their youngest daughter, Katherine. And any other information you might have. Thank you!
