Re: Edward Henry Hagerty, born 1867 in Detroit, Michigan

In Reply to: Re: Edward Henry Hagerty, born 1867 in Detroit, Michigan by Kim Reynolds of 94914

I have seen information on that family also, and I thought it was the right one until I did more digging into that family . . . later dates just don't match up, and my Grandfather tells me that the Edward Hagerty I am looking for was the first to be born in America.

Here is a complete run down on everything I know about the family.

Edward Henry Hagerty was born on May 9th, 1867 in Detroit, Michigan . . . this is from what I am told and what is in the family Bible. I have not been able to find Edward's actual birth record.

I found a record of his marriage to Bridget and Edward on at
May 1, 1894 is listed as their wedding date.

I have records of Edward and Bridget living in Ramsey County (St. Paul) Minnesota for the 1895, 1900, 1905, 1910, 1920 and 1930 Census. Edward Henry Hagerty died on April 7, 1947.

I do not know his parent's names, but my Grandfather has told me that they were from Ireland. Edward Henry Hagerty was supposedly the first Hagerty from our family line that was born in America.

Edward and Bridget had 3 sons . . .
Edward Henry Hagerty (1895-1972)
John Thomas Hagerty who is my Great Grandfather (1901-1944)
James Hagerty (1908 - unknown)

Edward Jr and James never married.

This is the information I have for Bridget . . . Bridget D. McMannan (it is spelled several different ways on different census reports)
Born August 21, 1872 in Ireland. I have found these two links that support that
It lists Michael McMannan and Honor Lavalle as her parents.

The 1930's Census listed her year of arrival in the States as 1888, which would correspond with the information in the 1895 Census that stated that she had been in Minnesota for 7 years. The only other records I have for her are the same ones I have for Edward. I do not know her date of death.

So what I am looking for are Edward Sr. parents, Bridget's date of death and James's date of death . . . . obituary would be nice too.
