OK!I find the family in the 1900 US census and Ann stating that she is a widow so then I say McGOWAN is her married name. 224 Sumner Street
AnnDec 18546/6 children living IRELAND JamesMarch 1877 Massachusetts Mary Ellen Dec 1881 Massachusetts William Mar 1886 Massachusetts Annie Mar 1885 Massachusetts MargaretMay 1887 Massachusetts
Yr of immigration given as 1872
Husband/Father born Ireland
It would appear that Mr McGOWAN died after Sept 1886. There is a margin note in the census referring one to "line 66 for 3x family" Then at line 66 which is the next page it refers back to line 44 where we find Ann McGowan.Family of line 66 is an individual named Eugene Sullivan born Mar 1820 Ireland.
I researched and found the following.Let me know if it matches anything else that you may have.
