Re: McGettigans of Philadelphia
I believe your McGettigan's are buried with my McFaddens. Mary McG is listed in the 1880 census as a boarder with them at 2228 Carpenter St. She is 65 and can not read or write. She is buried at Old Cathedral Cemetery Section Z range 11 lot 69. She died 1-9-1888 age 92. I believe her daughters are with her. Hannah d. 2-27-05 age 58 and Bridget d. 12-6-09 age 51. They are in the polt with 8 of my family. (Shaun, Sarah, Anna, Francis, and Frank McFadden and George, Sarah and Mary Pauline) My gg Shaun bought the plot in 1886 for about $25.00 which includes perpetual care.
I can't find a connection between the families except this. Hope this helps - If you find anything let me know. Paula
