Bill,

My great-grandmother was Jennie Elligett. She married Robert Magher. Family rumor claims they came into the U.S. from Canada, possibly Nova Scotia. They had 7 children. They were (in order of birth):
Frank Magher b. Buffalo NY

Robert Magher b.?

Alice Mary Magher (my grandmother), b. Frankfurt, NY Jan 10, 1888, d. Apr 1, 1952.

Arthur Magher b.?

Ann Magher b.?

Mildred Irene Magher b. Apr 26, 1904, d. Oct, 1995.

Raymond Magher

They finally settled in Kearny, NJ.

At first I thought your Jenny Elliget, 4th child of John Elliget and Maria Mahaffey, might be my Jennie Elligett, but my Jennie would have been closer in age to John Elliget and Maria Mahaffey.
The search continues.

Eileen
