Jamie, I got this info on my Flannagan's from response at the England message board. 1871 census (British I guess) Thurlstone Bridge Station, (Manchester Sheffield and Lincolnshire railway) Thurlstone, Youkshire.James Flanagan 47 Railway Stationmaster Ireland Roscommon Ellen Flanagan wife 43 Ireland Mayo Joseph D Flanagan son 15 Telegraph Clerk Rlwy Lancs Ashton under Lyne Catherine Flanagan dau 13 Lancs Staleybridge Elizabeth Flanagan dau 11 Cheshire, Hyde James Edward Flanagan son 7 Cheshire, Hyde Theresa Flanagan dau 5 Cheshire, Hyde. Then in 1881 British census, I found this. Joseph D. Flannagan b.1856, place: Ashton under Lyne Lanc, Eng. age; 25, Occ. solicitors clerk Shorthandwriter. The next thing I have is Burial site at Mt. View Cemetary in Oakland CA. Joseph D. Flannagan 02-25-1921 along with Alice J. Flannagan 03-24-1941, Mary Ellen Flannagan 03-15-1889, Alice M. Flannagan 10-05-1979. These are all in the Carleton plot. I guess the Mary Ellen is the same as listed in the 1871 census as Ellen. Hope this info helps someone else.
