Below is what you can see is info on a Mary Doonan born 1877 Cavan county Cavan Ireland . She is my Great Grand mother she came to the USA in 1896 to Mary John Gagain/Geoghegan born 1869 Cavan Co. Cavan son of Peter Geoghegan and Susan Daley also from Cavan .

Now After Mary Doonan came here to get Married to John gagain/Geoghegan she had a Daughter born 1898 in Waterbury Connecticut an a son ( my grand father ) born Nov 11 , 1900 in Waterbury Connecticut . Soon there After John mary husband died by falling , jumping or getting pushed off a bridge . Mary left the USA and went back to Ireland with John Jr and with Susan Gagain/ many spelling here in US for Gagain / Geoghegan .
