I am looking for information about my Meagher grandparents, James Francis Meagher born abt1841 in Tipperary,Ire. came to America when he was 1yr. with his parents Thomas and Mary Ann (McClure) Meagher. James married Addy Mirley, but she died March 10, 1880. I don't know about children from this marriage. Then he married Catherine Donvavan on April 15, 1881. Given the dates between the death of his first wife and the marriage to the 2nd, leads me to believe there is a very strong chance that James had children from his first marriage. His children with Catherine are: Joseph Meagher, born Oct.1900. [Joes'first marriage was to Mary Fishbach. They had no children that I am aware of. Joseph married a second time to whom I do not know, and they did have children. They lived in Brooklyn NY.] Elizabeth(Betty 1894-1972), my granddmother,married George Gallaudet(1894-1922) May 11, 1915, Abagail 10/1902, Catherine,1884-1972, Anna ?, Margaret 4/1896 and there may have been a brother Edward from his father previous marriage, to Addy Mirley. Everyone lived in Brooklyn, NY. James does however have brothers and I am trying to find out their names. I don't know about sisters, could be?
I hope this does sound familar to someone.
