I do have Ancestry and have tried the link. No luck....but I'll keep digging! My grandmother died in Bellevue....is that still in Allegheny or another county? I need to get a county map for back then! Don't know if they were living there when they got married. Anyway, thanks for your help....
Having worked in law enforcement for 37 years, I know the pain of a member of the law enforcement family being killed. If only the public would give them the respect they deserve. Anyway, in my ancestor search, I've come across 2 cousins living near you. I was born in Mt. Lebanon but moved to California when I was young so I'm not real familiar with the area. My father's family seemed to have stayed in and around Allegheny Co. Having a heck of a time finding marriage info on my grandfather and grandmother. How are the records kept? This would have been around 1920 or so. I was able to get my great grandfathers and great grandmothers marriage info from 1897. Very strange. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
Saw your comment last nite on the Chat but had to run so I didn't get a chance to chat with you. You posted about the trooper's death. So very sad. I pulled up the link you had to the story and saw Cranberry Twp mentioned. Do you live near there? (since you mentioned you knew the trooper) I was asking because I just recently connected with a cousin who lives in Cranberry Twp. Just curious. Prayers and thoughts are with the trooper's family.....
Hi you guys,
My maternal grandfather was William Russell Mooney (1898-1966) he named all his homes Avoca you may know it as Ballykisangel, its in the Wicklow Mountains we took my mother there after my dad died, but couldn't find any obvious links other than the feeling we had come home
I don't know if you got my previouse note - but Patrick O'DONNELL was a British Soldier and when the US - Canada Border was set, the troop was on an Island that became US Property, the troop was moved to Pentanguishene (Penetang, Ontario on the Georgian Bay) He took his release from the British Army and stayed in Canada, he married Mary Guilteney in Penetand and they are Buried in the Military Cemetry there.
Samuel Laird was a prominent citizen in Illinois. He has had military training and volunteered for service in the war with Mexico, becoming colonel of a cavalry regiment. He was a strong supporter of Abraham Lincoln and was deputized to escort Lincoln to Freeport for one of his famous debates with Stephen Douglas. Samuel drove four white horses in tandem, hitched to a high-seated carryall on which he sat with Lincoln. The two were dressed in long-tailed coats and high silk hats.
When the Civil War came along, Thomas Laird, the oldest son of Samuel and Elizabeth Laird, enlisted Oct. 8, 1861, in company G, 46th Illinois Infantry, and served with distinction. He saved the life of his commanding officer and was promoted to first lieutenant. He was discharged Feb. 2, 1866. Laird Haines also served in the Union Army.
I have searched www.familysearch.org and the pilot withiut success. Tried GenSmart but that doesn't go back far enough. Tried Stevemorse.com/org in every color imagneable. One of these days he'll probably drop out of nowhere. Just hope I'm still around to catch him!
I checked the recommended sites but came up emty-handed. I subscribe to ancestry.com International every other year and this is my "no" year. I can't access the data from America. Some other sites have links that have expired and unusable. My John Mooney apparently died at sea between UK and Canada/United States.
I am another at the Wall. I am seeking information on John Mooney (1822- ) Ireland and Mary Hehir (1820-1880) both Ireland. Family stories indicate County Clare. The Clare Heritage Centre in Corofin, County Clare reported completion of research on John Mooney and Mary Hehir. The search involved a full and detailed study of all Marriage Registers at their disposal. They failed to uncover evidence of the couple's marriage. The available Baptismal Registers also failed to show any records on children to a John Mooney and Mary Hehir.
this is what i was talking about last night..
