Vonda I can at least tell you what became of some of the children of Catherine McGaffigan & Dennis Doherty. Thank you for the information on the date and location of Catherine's demise. My Gr Gr Gr grandfather was Patrick born 1817 and it was said that he came to the US with his brothers and parents. They arrived in St Johns New Brunswick Canada May 17, 1839. I never discovered what became of his father. The family later settled near Cambridge, Mass.
Patrick died Feb 24, 1906 Town of Mitchell, Sheboygan County, WI, His wife Susan died Jan 20, 1904 same location. They left behind a large family. Patrick arrived in WI May 7, 1855.
John b 1820 died in Sheboygan, Co. WI but I never discovered when. He arrived in Wisconsin about 1849.
Their Sister Catherine b 1832 or 1833 who married Ed Mc Laughlin also died Sheboygan Co. WI November 13, 1909.
Patrick, John and Edward McLaughlin were all farmers, their farms being situated next to one anothers.
There is buried in the family pot an Ann McGaffigan who died 1892. According to the censu she was born about 1811. I have never been able to deermine who she is. A sister of Catherine Doherty nee McGaffigan perhaps??
