William McNeil and Catherine Maguire
Posted by: Diana Landsman (ID *****9820) Date: September 07, 2010 at 09:46:46

I am looking for information on the children of William McNeil and Catherine Maguire who were residing in Albany, NY in 1880. William McNeil murdered Catherine Maguire on May 21, 1880 in Albany. He was sentenced to life imprisonment, and served 31 years until pardoned by Gov Dix in 1911.
There were 4 or 5 children left orphaned. Helen (Nellie) McNeil was sent to an orphanage, but I am unable to locate the older children, who I believe were taken in by relatives of neighbors. Any information concerning the children, and also information related to Catherine's or William's parents would be most welcomed.
