Still looking for information about Margaret Donegan, born @ 1825 in Ireland.
She married John MORAN (born @ 1828 in Ireland) 1 December 1853 at St. Patrick's, Calvey Township, Franklin County, Missouri. (St. Patrick's is now in the town of Catawissa.) At the time, John's family lived in Jefferson County, near Byrnesville, but this was the closest church.
Their children are Thomas 1856, Patrick 1857, Edward 1859, Mary A. 1861, John 1865.Thomas died in 1890, is interred next to his grandmother Mary Geatley Moran at Our Lady, Queen of Peace/St. Columekill Cemetery, up the slope from the Geatley family.
John died @ 1865, Margaret remarried, Mr. (Thomas?) Thompson, daughter Margaret born 1869.
The 1870 Jefferson County Census is the last I've seen of these folks!
