McDonagh family Ireland
« on: Sunday 01 April 12 19:52 BST (UK) »
Hi My name is Maria James and my great grandmother was Maria McDonagh. She was a lodger at 18 Airdriehill Square, Airdrie in 1891 when she married my great grandfather Thomas O'Brien who lived in the same street. I am trying to trace what happened to her as she was in the 1901 census in Scotland with her husband and children but he died later that year and she seemed to disappear between then and 1922 when she was noted as dead as she was deceased at her sons wedding that year. in the 1911 census her children were living with her husbands mother. I think the family name may come from Galway or Roscommon but I cannot seem to trace her, any help would be appreciated. Thanks Maria x

Hi Tara

He was called Edward McDonagh and he was a general labourer. Her mother was Margaret McDonagh (Woods). I dont think they lived in Scotland as they are not on any of the census. I think they may have only come over for the wedding from Ireland or perhaps they did not even attend the wedding but she just listed them as her parents. She was a lodger at the time of her marriage.

Hope you can help.

Regards

Maria

Any idea when Maria was born? civil registration of births started in 1864 so if she was born after that date there should be a birth registration.

Civil registration index is at Family Search site however it may be difficult to see the correct entry from the index. Some extracted Irish births  also available which cover 1864-1880 list names of parents and exact date of birth-

Hi there,

I would reckon that the Mary that 'kinkerswell' found could most likely be your Maria - as I have seen these Christian names being interchangeable.

I think Edward and Margaret had 4 children - Mary, Margater and Edward but I can't find the name of the 4th. I can't see a marriage for this couple either but I think with 'kinkerswell' super find you now now that your McDonagh roots are in County Longford. The children were all baptised in Granard Roman Catholic Church.

Hi I wondered if you could tell me where you found those records please? I looked on the family search website but could not find those entries. Maria
