Mary Farrell Burke, dau. of Wm. Farrell & Mary McAndrew d. Scranton PA 1934
Posted by: Jamie O'Brien (ID *****6266) Date: May 03, 2002 at 15:57:05
  of 466

The info on my gg-grandmother's death certificate is as follows:

Name: Mary A. BURKE (nee FARRELL)
Address: 889 Providence Road; Scranton Pennsylvania
Age: 70 (actually she was abt. 76)
Birthplace: New York (have no idea where in NY)
Date of death: November 11, 1934
Cause: Coronary thrombosis; arteriosclerosis
Father: William FARRELL
Birthplace of father: Ireland
Mother: Mary MCANDREW
Birthplace of mother: Ireland
Informant: William BURKE (Mary BURKE's son)
Address of informant: 889 Providence Road

I have hardly any other information on either the Farrell or the McAndrew surnames. All that I know is that William FARRELL was born in Ireland around 1840 and emigrated to somewhere in New York abt. 1850.

Mary FARRELL BURKE was born somewhere in New York abt. 1858. She married an Albert BURKE (who is also from NY)abt. 1875. They had four children:

Anna ("Annie") b. abt. 1876 in Scranton Pennsylvania
(married John THOMPSON)

Theresa b. abt. 1879 in Scranton PA
(married Michael MCGUIRE)

William b. abt. 1882 in Scranton PA
(married Mary DODANE)

Elizabeth b. abt. 1886 in Scranton PA
(married John NEARY)

Sound familiar to anyone? I was hoping the death certificate would yield the exact place in New York that Mary FARRELL BURKE was born, but much to my disappointment, it didn't. Thanks in advance for any help anyone might be able to give me.
