I am researching a Patrick Dergan/Durgin/Durkin b. Ireland abt 1847. Patrick married the widow Mary Gray Brophy, my g-grandmother, August 22, 1868 in Monroe Co., IA.Pat and Mary had a son Henry born 1869. The family remained in Monroe Co., Ia until 1879 and then they moved, destination unknown. Mary's siblings/descendants never heard from her or her new husband again. My grandfather was placed in guardianship in Monroe Co., IA and never saw his mother again.
