I am searching for information on Patrick MEAGHER and
his wife Mary RYAN of Tipperary. I'm almost certain they emigrated from Ireland in 1851 and ended up in Maryland. So starting from the earliest I know of the MEAGHERS:
>Patrick b. c. 1802 (Railstown parish of Cashel Co. >Tipperary) on headstone; d. 4 Dec 1880, Balto, Md. >m. Mary RYAN Meagherb. c. 1810 (same on headstone); d. 28 Dec. 1880,Balto, Md.
Patrick also had a brother Rev. Pierce MEAGHER who had died in Harrisburg, Pa. before he died. Patrick's parents died in Ireland, but I don't know their names. His father died in 1851 in his 84th year; his mother died 24th of Aug 1838 in her 60th year
>Both Patrick and Mary are buried in New Cathedral Cemetery in Baltimore, Md. St. Patrick Section Lot 57B >
>Their children: >Margaret- 1836 - became a nun >Pierce - 1842 - died at age 11; buried with parents >Alice Cecelia - 1845 - married Arthur Shanklin >Philip Thomas - 1848 - married Sarah Potter >Annie - 1856 - buried with her parents >Thomas - 1866 - died at age 4; buried with parents Julia - married Robert J. Foley > >Alice is my ggrandmother and is buried in a small >cemetary behind Immaculate Conception Church in Baltimore in Robt. Foley's plot because Julia Foley was her sister according to family sources. Arthur Shanklin was buried with his first wife.
