|I am researching the family of Tobias Mansell, born September 1865 in New Jersey son of John Mansell and Johanna Fitzgerald both born in Ireland per Tobias' death certificate. Tobias lived most of his life in Brooklyn, New York. Tobias was a Police Sargent on the Brooklyn, New York Police force. Tobias married Sarah Brown and had one son John. Sarah died in 1889 and Tobias married Rose Angelina Drugan in 1896. Tobias and Rose had 8 children - Florence, Francis, Helen, William, Joseph, Rose, and twins Agnes and Edward. |
Rose Drugan Mansell was born August 1873 in Brooklyn to William Drugan, born in Ireland and Bridget Anglim also born in Fox and Geese, Co. Clare, Ireland. Rose had 8 siblings, 5 of them were alive per the 1900 census.
Tobias' father John Mansell either died or was divorced from Johanna Fitzgerald before 1873 when she married William Nowd. Johanna had 6 children only 2 of which were alive in 1900 - Tobias and John Mansell.
Tobias' brother John was born March 1863 and married Elizabeth Umland. John and Elizabeth had 8 children - James, John, Mary, Josephine, Frank, Alice, Thomas and Charles.
I would appreciate any information on this Mansell or Drugan family and would be willing to share what I have.
