Well, it is now 2011 and time to repost my ancient queries.
I am trying to locate any information about my Caughlin/Coughlin ancestors who lived in Washington County, Wisconsin in the years 1850-55. The towns they lived in were Hartford and Erin.
The father was Luke Caughlin (b. Abt. 1820), married to Bridget Reidy (Reedy) (b. Abt. 1820; d. 1878 in Necedah). They had 3 kids: Michael Coughlin (b. 1849; d. 1925), John Coughlin (b. 1853; d. 1871) and Ellen Coughlin (b. 1858; d. 1946).
I have info on Michael and Ellen, but nothing on John or his father, Luke!
I believe there were other Coughlins living in or around Erin at this time and it is possible the families could have been related (at least it seems like too much of a coincidence that two totally unrelated Coughlin families would settle in a small place like Erin at that time).
Anyone who has information, please post it here or email me at [email protected] Thanks!
