In Reply to: Meagher in the Bronx by Tracy Hogan of 972

I believe I found his WWI Draft Registration Card. I can send it to you. Send me an email (
On the card it states that he is a police officer.

Name: Edward J Meagher
City: Bronx
County: Bronx
State: New York
Birthplace: New York
Birth Date: 21 Mar 1889
Race: Caucasian
Roll: 1754124
DraftBoard: 15


I believe this is his social security information:

Name: Edward J. Meagher
SSN: 087-26-0884
Last Residence: 10467 Bronx, Bronx, New York, United States of America
Born: 21 Mar 1889
Died: 15 Oct 1969
State (Year) SSN issued: New York (Before 1951 )

A person had to fill out an application to get a social security can get a copy of that applicationÖ. Included on the application is the fatherís full name and the motherís full maiden name, the personís city of birth. You must contact Social Security for that information and because the cost is $27, I only do it when there is no other way to find out the information.

To be specific, the application form contains the following information:

Full name

Full name at birth (including maiden name)

Present mailing address

Age at last birthday

Date of birth

Place of birth (city, county, state)

Father's full name "regardless of whether living or dead"

Mother's full name, including maiden name, "regardless of whether living or dead"

Sex and race

Ever applied for SS number/Railroad Retirement before? Yes/No

Current employer's name and address

Date signed

Applicant's signature

There is a way to get his birth certificate.That should have his parents names on it.

You may be able to get his police records too.

The NYC public library may have local papers that you can search if you live in the area.
