Bridget Jane Munhall & Michael O’Conner was my Great Grand father & motherMichael was born in 1831 & Died in Minnesota in 1922. Bridget was born in 1834 ? & died in 1928 in Minnesota. Bridget was sent to America at age 9 to live with her sister Catherinebecause of the Potato Famine in Ireland.She was 19 when she married, the date was February 26, 1854 in Boston. They had 13 children & adapted 9 more. They lived in Boston two years before he & his friend Willam Triggs ( my Great Grandfather) who came with him to America in about 1850. Both are buried in St Ligouri Cemetery in Preston, Minnesota.
In the last week I have been working with Munhall relatives of Patrick Munhall of Munhall PA. to gather information on the parents of Bridget. Our records show that Bridget’s father was John Munhall but we have no birth, death , marriage date or wife’s name. At this point I feel that John was the brother of Patrickbecause my Aunts told me we were related to him. WE are trying to gather information Patrick’s parents &their whole family. We know that after her husband’s death she came to America & lived to be 104 years old.
Please feel free to get in touch with any information you can help us on.
