Re: Bridget McGowan
Have you done any looking at Griffiths McGowan records? In County Mayo at Carrowmore Moy I find my ancestors listed.These were Patrick Mc Gowan and Mary Carabine.Their son Patrick n. 1849 there and first migrated to England and then US.
There are 2 Patrick in this community.One was nicknamed Felix and the other Patt.They are on Plot 3, parts b and d respectively.
Later in the death database, Pat Mac Gowan of Ballyowly (a town land of cmm) died 13 aug 1873born about 1809.Of illness, informant Mary McGowan, Head of Household.Wonder if designated as Head, succeeding Pat.
the second Pat MacGowan, Ballyhowly, a widower and farmer16 nov 1891 age 70 n abt 1821, from Bronchitis. Informant Anne Dunleavy.
Either one could be my gg grandfather.
Have you determined a point of origin for Bridget?
