Seeking any information on William Monahan and Miss Harrison (born maybe 1790s), possibly Bridget, daughter of James Harrison of Churchill.

a William Monahan married Miss Harrison, she of Castleblayney Presbtyerian.

They either stayed in Irealnd or emigrated. Where to? Mot likely New York City, where they are NOT buried with the rest of the Harrisons in Green-wood Cemetery.

1840 Kings County, New York [Kings County includes Brooklyn.]
William Monahan household has four people in it.
one male 10-14
one male 15-19
one male 60-69
one female 40-49 [so born 1791-1800]
Of these, one works in agriculture. There are two free whites under 20.

1850 Brooklyn ward 5, Kings County, New York
William Monnahan, 60 [so born about 1790], born in Ireland, occupation: carman
Bridget Monnahan, 45, born Ireland
John Monnahan, 16, born New York
Rose Gulliver, 17, born Ireland
(Heather McFaddin, e-mail, 2 November 2012.)

Was this couple our family? What works is his name (William Monahan), her birthplace (Irealnd), her ages in 1840 but not 1850, the fact htere were so few children. There may have been no heirs of Mrs. William Monahan after 1900.

No immigration ship found for parents. No gravesites found for William or Bridget. No information about which county William was from.

I am interested in your thoughts and any information you might have on Monahans from County Monaghan.
