Patrick O'Connor was married to Bridget Larkin. Both were born in Ireland, and show up on the Brooklyn, NY 1860 Census. Their children were listed as Margaret, MaryAnn, Katherine, and Bridget. The 1870 NY Census shows Bridget as a widow, living with Margaret, MaryAnn, Katherine, and Elizabeth. I am searching for death records for Patrick (husband) who died between 1869-1870. And death record for daughter Bridget who died between 1860-1870. Patrick was born approx 1827. There were dozens of Patrick O'Connors killed in Civil War, but I am unable to find a connection that would identify one of them as my family member. Does anyone know if they put wife's name, occupation on the war records???? I am against a solid brick wall, and have not made any progress on this family in 2+ years. I need help!! Thanks in advance for any token kindness you bestow me!
