I have some old family notes from a lady that was raised by Peter Ryan. Her name was Sarah Ruddy.She has William Curtis and Bridget Agnes Ryan married in Omaha but no date. In the family notes she is either Bridget Agnes or B.Agnes. Alternate name to look for?
On the 1900 census, it lists Agnes as married 6 years so that puts her marriage around 1893/94 at the age of 18.Agnes was born in Pennsylvania and that is also on the 1900 census.However, the children have father's birthplace listed as Pennsylvania and the mother (Agnes) as Indiana.Then ever so lightly Penn has been written over every Indiana entry. Do you know if William was born in Indiana or Penn? The enumerator was getting the info mixed from somewhere.
You might want to check Holt County, Nebraska marriage records that started in 1878.I couldn't find when Douglas County started.John and Ann had a farm right next to Peter Ryan in Inman not too far out of O'Neill in Holt County.According to family story, John's house was destroyed in a tornado and he sold his property to Peter and moved to Omaha. I do not have a date when that move was made so it is possible that they still lived in Inman prior to 1900.Also, John and Ann are both buried in the CAtholic section of Calvary cemetery in O'Neill even though they lived in Omaha.I would check St. Patricks parish records in O'Neill for a possible marriage of Bridget Agnes Ryan to WilliamCertainly, one would expect the marriage to have been in Nebraska since the first child is born there in 1894 but people traveled a lot to visit relatives in those days and it could have been another state altogether.
Family notes on children: 1.Mary Curtis married Byron B Farr.They had a daughter Marie Anna Farr who married George Centerbar on 28 Dec 1946 at Cathlamet, Washington.His parents supposedly owned a Hotel there on the Columbia River and it appears from the notes that they were married there. 2.William at age 30 was single 3.Ann married a Dr. A Osterburg or Osterbury. According to notes, he was a pathologist at Mayo clinic.They had three children listed: Annette who was a registered nurse, Erving Joseph and Donna who married a Bruce Colten
All this info would have to be verified since a lot of Sarah Ruddys other info about family turned out to be inaccurate.There has always been just enough clues hidden in these notes that kept me going past all the mistakes so hope some of this gives you more leads.
Agnes was only 24 in the 1900 census.She very well could have remarried before the 1910 census and I would look in Omaha.
Do you happen to have a death record or obit on John? The obit might name her with a different last name, if there is one.
