I do not know if this helps. A gg grandmother of mine was Sarah McGoldrick, one of a family of McGoldricks from Co.Tyrone who had emigrated to Ohio, Perry Co. their mother was Bridget McGoldrick, whose husband had died in Ireland. Most are buried in St. Dominics Catholic Ch. Cemetery in Harrison Twp., Perry Co. Ohio.
I believe that Bridget was a Nugent before she married a McGoldrick in Co. Tyrone Ireland. I think she was born about 1791 (Calculated from her age given in Census Records). She married a ____McGoldrick, probably where I suspect she was born, Omagh, Co. Tyrone Ireland. She and her husband are known to have had at least 7 children, 3 sons & 4 daughters, and after her husband died in Ireland, according to family records, she and her children immigrated to America. She settled in Harrison
TWP., Perry Co. Ohio.
The following is not proven, but I thilk she immigrated with another McGoldrick Family in the area, ie. Edward & Catherine Mc Caffrey McGoldrick and their 11 children. I think Edward McGoldrick was likely Bridget's deceased husband's brother.
I also suspect, but cannot prove that Bridget was probably a Nugent, before her marriage. Several Nugent's were listed as cousins in court documents for Perry county. There was a "Nugent Hill" in adjacent Pike TWP. in Perry Co. An Andrew Nugent might have been a brother, or son of Bridget's brother.
There are no tombstones in the St. Dominic's Catholic Church Cemetery for Bridget McGoldrick or any of her family. (Ann McGoldrick and her husband Michael Car(e)y obtained the original McGoldrick homestead/property in Harrison TWP., just a couple of miles from St. Dominic's Catholic Church. (Only the cemetery remains. ) The other McGoldrick family is well represented there. I suspect that Bridget and her family were too poor to afford tombstones. We have no records as to when or where Bridget died. We do know from the will of her daughter, also named Bridget McGoldrick, who died in 1868, that her mother was still alive at that time.
