Rose Anne--Thanks for responding. I do have his death record from the city of New Bedford MA. It just says he was born in Ireland (parents John and Mary). I was never able to locate a marriage record. His wife was Isabel Quinn from Halifax NS (maybe born in St John NB). It might be that Terence came down through Canada and they were married before Massachusetts. Terence's death record gives the cemetery (St Mary's New Bedford), but a few years after he was buried, the cemetery was moved and he was buried with others in an unmarked grave. No cemetery records are available. Isabel was born Feb 1829. Terence died at age 30 in Oct 1851, so the Irish census you mentioned unfortunately does not help me. I located both of his children's baptismal records and followed up somewhat on the godparents. His son's godfather was John Rodgers and I found he was born in Co Down. They also list Terence as Terence A Hagan. The Hagan coat of arms we have mentions Tyrone, but I have no evidence he came from there. He was a tailor in Boston (I know from family and records) and then he went to New Bedford but died so young-no naturalization records. I check the Irish church recors through Irish Family History Foundation, but I get the feeling they are not complete. Thanks for taking an interest. Any more suggestions welcome. John H Hagan
