McGrann's in Watertown, NY
Posted by: Kathy Simons (ID *****0280) Date: April 18, 2002 at 17:40:56

I'm trying to find information on John McGrann abt 1860-?), married Emma/Emelia Flynn (1861-1888). In going through the Watertown Directories of 1888-1892, there were the following McGrann's listed:

1888

Name: Edwin J. McGrann
Occ: Delivery Clerk
Address: 7 Moulton

Name: James McGrann
Occ: Machinist
Address: ?

Name: John McGrann
Occ: Miller
Address: 9 Davidson

Name: Peter McGrann
Occ: Drayman
Address: 19 Lynde

Name: Peter McGrann, Jr.
Occ: Laborer
Address: Boarding, 19 Lynde

Name: Thomas McGrann
Occ: Teamster
Address: Boarding, 41 Mounton


1889, 1890

Name: Edwin J. McGrann
Occ: ?? (I'm guessing same as above)
Address: 29 1/2 LeRay

Name: Miss Anna McGrann
Occ: Tailoress
Address: Boarding, 19 Lynde

Name: James McGrann
Occ: ?? (Again, probably as above)
Address: Boarding, 19 Lynde

Name: Peter McGrann
Occ: Drayman
Address: 19 Lynde

Name: Peter McGrann, Jr.
Occ: Laborer
Address: Boarding, 19 Lynde

Name: Thomas McGrann
Occ: Teamster
Address: Boarding, 41 Moulton


1891

Name: Edwin J. McGrann
Occ: ?? (Take a guess)
Address: 19 Mundy

Name: Miss Anna McGrann
Occ: Tailoress
Address: Boarding, 19 Lynde

Name: James McGrann
Occ: ?? (Take another guess)
Address: Boarding, 19 Lynde

Name: John McGrann
Occ: Miller
Address: Boarding, 19 Lynde

Etc., Etc., Etc.

When John's wife died in Nov., 1888, they were living at 9 Davidson, so John must have moved between then and the publication of the 1889 Directory. I'm also guessing, that all of these McGrann's were all related.

The only new McGrann name to the Directories was Miss Susie McGrann, occupation of trimmer, and was also boarding at 19 Lynde.

Does anyone know anything about the McGrann's that lived in Watertown?

Thanks in advance,

Kathy
