Her parents are Christopher and Margaret McGrath from Ireland living in Byron, Waseca Co. Minnesota.
The only further information I can find is in the mother Margaret's obituary from the
New Richland Star (Minnesota) on April 3, 1931 which list a daughter Mary Cosgrove from Hurd, North Dakota.
Other information from that obituary has the mother Margaret being from County Loud, Irelandborn May 4, 1839.She was the daughter of Thomas and Marcella Kirk.
Margaret was living in Byron, Waseca Co. MN by age 11.
Margaret wed Christopher McGrath from Faribault, MN in 1859, they had 12 children and 5 survived.
They are in the 1880 US Census for Byron.
I would like to follow-up on Mary McGrath Cosgrove, and see if there are any pictures of her that I can compare,
or any letters from her childhood neighbors.
Thank you for your time, CY
