States: Nebraska: Greeley
I am looking for information on Patrick Cadegan (aka P. W. Cadegan, P. W. Cadigan) and his wife Mary. They are shown on the 1880 Federal census for O'Connor, Greeley Cty, Nebraska, ED 144, page 185B. He is shown on the 1881 Personal Tax list under the O'Connor precinct. In the "Who's Who in Nebraska" 1940 by Edith Swain McDermott, it lists him in a group of Irish immigrants who came from Boston in 1877 that settled in a valley just east of Fish Creek which they named Boston Valley. In the Nebraska State Gazeteer business directory and Farmer list for 1890-1891 he is listed as running a meat market in the village of Brayton. I believe Patrick to be mt G. G. Grandfather who was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and Mary Cadegan (Ronan) mt G. G. Grandmother born in New York (1830). They left Cape Breton around 1870 moving to the Boston area. Do not have any information on either of their deaths. Appreciate any help.
