I have been working on my paternal grandmothor's line for several hours today.
I know the following:
My grandmother Elizabeth Finnegan Croughwell born Sept. 1890 in Monson,MA
My G. grandfather Patrick J. Finnegan born 1861-1863 Ireland married Mary Ann Haggerty Jan. 3, 1888, Monson, MA
My G. grandmother Mary Ann Haggerty Finnegan Born. Apr. 1861 Ireland Died July 7, 1915, Monson, MA
Record that I found states that Mary Ann Haggerty was a widow when she died . The record states that she was born in 1863, however,the date that is listed for her birth at the cemetery is 1861. Note: On my grandmother's death certificate it states that Mary Ann Haggerty was born in Deposit, NY.
Since my G. grandmother died a widow, I have been searching for the whereabouts of my G. grandfather Patrick J. Finnegan . I did not find him buried in Monson, MA. with my G. grandmotherand I cannot find anything on his death.He died before July 1915.
My G.G. grandfather Patrick J. Haggerty(Johnmay be his middle name) born 1840 Ireland died 1918 Monson, MA
My G.G. grandmother Catherine Lyons (Lynes) born 1840 Ireland died 1923 Monson, MA.
Records have Catherine's maiden namespelledLyons or Lynes. On the record at the cemetery it lists it as Lynes.
Mary Ann Haggerty Finnegan , her father Patrick Haggerty and her mother Catherine Lynes Haggerty are buried at Bethany Road Cemetery in Monson, MA.This may be a Haggerty family plot. Since Mary Ann died before her parents, she may have been living with them prior to her death.
Patrick J. Finnegan's parents are listed on their marriage certificate as:
My G. G. grandfather Edward Finnegan birthplaceIreland My G. G. grandmotherMary birthplace Ireland
I do not know Mary's maiden namenor whether or notthey came over to the States from Ireland
Any help in locating my G. grandfather's resting place or any information on his parents would greatly be appreciated.Thank you in advance.
