From other postings:
Daniel, was the son of John Mahoney and Mary Hurly
Was born about 1854 in England and died between 1888 and 1900-probably-Washington State.
Annie daughter of John Lowe, born about 1830 in Kildare, Ireland, Maxine Ellen, died about 1860 on Long Island, NY, two children, George Johnson Lowe, born about 1860 and Annie
Yes, they married in 1884 in Seattle on Oct 4, 1884.There is an image of the marriage certificate at: http://www.digitalarchives.wa.gov/default.aspxhttp://www.digitalarchives.wa.gov/default.aspx
witnesses John Lowe and Thomas Hellijone,
This website also shows, under Frontier Justice, King County, an 1886 Civil Case for Divorce/Custody, Anna C. Mahoney, Plaintiff, versus Daniel Mahoney, Defendant.
--This case shows Anna filing suit, there is NO indication that he abandoned her, or any indication that she filed suit because she just didn't wish to be married.You can't speculate without facts.You would HAVE to obtain the actual court records to identify the cause as specified in her Petition.Additional Documents would identify child support/custody and agreements in the final decree.
--The problem.Washington became a State in 1889.The Court Clerks for the Superior Courts were required after that time to maintain all Superior Court records.However, some Territorial records of court cases still exist.They might be at the Archives: http://www.sos.wa.gov/archives/archives_puget.aspxhttp://www.sos.wa.gov/archives/archives_puget.aspx
Or, the present Clerk of the Superior Court might have information:
You appear to have the US Census data already.I'll repeat the 1900 census as it was the first available (the 1890 burned, the 1880 was prior to marriage)
Residing in Shelton
John Lowe, born Mar 1830 in Ireland, widower
Anna Lowe, dau, born Feb 1864 in New York, mother of 2/2 living, widow
Richie, May 1886
George April 1888
--During this time period, many divorced women, especially with children did not want the stigma of identification of divorce.Thus, many took the term of widow.However, even though there appears to be a divorce case between these two, she might still have been a widow, without further proving information.
Now, your information identies Daniel remarried and had five children, three sons and two daughters.I do find a Daniel matching some of your criteria, born about 1854 in England, a new family as identified:
The 1900 Census for Seattle, King County, WA
Daniel Mahoney, born April 1854 in Ireland, immigrated in 1865, owned his home, proprietor of a cigar store. married 12 years (1887/1888)
Catherine M?, born March 1861 in Canada, immigrated 1868. mother of 5/5 living
Bernard, born Sep 1890
Daniel, born Dec 1891
William T, Dec 1894
Alfred, born Dec 1894 (Twin w/above)
Mary Myrtle, born Dec 1898.
The 1910 Census for Seattle, King Co,
Daniel Mahoney, born in Ireland, owner cigar store, immigrated 1881, married 22 years, first marriage.
Kate, 49 (1860/1861), born in Canada, mother of 6/6 living.
William and Alfred both 15
The 1920 Census shows Daniel P Mahoney, 69, now shown as born in New York to both parents born in Ireland, living with his family in Seattle.No additional Children.
I find a family tree showing Bernard.His father is identified as Daniel P. Mahoney, born April 1854 in Ireland, died 15 July 1944 in Spokane.
Children identified as:
Daniel Andy 1892
William Mitchael 1894
Alfred Steven Patrick, 1894
Mary Myrtle 1898
Marcelline C. Ruth Mahoney born 18 June 1900, died 20 March 1989 in Seattle.
--I sent a message to this person to read this thread and help if possible.
The Washington Death Certificate Index does show a
--Daniel P. Mahoney, death on 15 July 1944 in Spokane, but was age 81 years 3 months and 28 days, that would be birth about 1863.Father was Thomas J. Mahoney, mother Catherine Ahern. May/may not be the correct person
--Catherine M. Mahoney, died 3 Dec 1947 in Seattle, age 87 years 8 months 29 days (1860) married to Daniel P. Mahoney, father Bernard Flynn, mother Catherine Bennett
--George Mahoney, died 8 Aug 1943 in Mason County, age 57 years 4 months 4 days (1886) Father Daniel Mahoney, mother Annie Lowe

---The Washington State Library has a free research service, the ask-a-librarian program, where they will look for information in the archives, in this case the newspaper microfilm for an event.They will look up to an hour and send you the results.Contact them at: http://www.secstate.wa.gov/library/ask.aspxhttp://www.secstate.wa.gov/library/ask.aspx .
For an obituary:
Depending on the amount of requests, it could take up to a couple of weeks.
Otherwise, based on records, there was a Daniel Mahoney that married Annie Lowe.It "appears" AN Annie, at minimum, filed a case for divorce against A Daniel Mahoney.There is no further proof found on this couple.No ages, dates of birth, etc.
In 1900, a Daniel Mahoney was found in Seattle, born about the same time-frame that you identified.This person was married to a Catherine.This person may or may not be the correct person, depending of course on what additional information you have on this family.
So, any additional record you may have would help.
