Michael McNAMARA & wife, Mary - Newport 1880 census
Posted by: B.J. McNamara (ID *****8704) Date: January 12, 2013 at 22:25:12
  of 970

I am researching the family of Michael McNamara age 42 shown on 1880 Newport, Campbell Co KY with wife, Mary age 32, and five sons:
1. Dennis McNamara age 10
2. Thomas McNamara age 8
3. John McNamara age 6
4. Peter McNamara age 3
5. Joseph McNamara age 8 months

I am trying to determine if John McNamara (child #3) is my grandfather!!

I first find Michael & Mary in 1870 living in Lexington, Fayette Co KY, with one child, Dennis age 8 months

My grandfather told me he was born in Lexington KY.

By 1880 Michael, Mary and 5 sons are living in Newport KY.

In 1900 Michael & Mary are still living in Newport KY, but only Dennis, Thomas & Joseph are in the household with them.

I believe John McNamara age 24 (child #3) is the person shown on 1900 Newport Campbell Co KY census, living as a boarder in the household of Bridget Kane (widow).

I cannot find Child #3 after 1900.

When I was born in 1938, my grandfather John McNamara was elated and told my mother that I was the first girl born in his McNAMARA family in five generations. Then I found the 1880 census with Michael McNamara and FIVE SONS and am trying to confirm if Michael's Child #3 is my grandfather.

If there are any descendants of Michael & Mary McNamara who happen to read this query, please get in touch with me at: Any help will greatly be appreciated. Thank you.

Barbara McNamara
