New York Passenger List - Liverpool to New York on the City of Brussels - Hamilton Mc Grath born 1848 aged 22 years - Jane Magrath aged 14 year and Kate Magrath aged 12 years.

Sandra

Do you have a date for this please? (Just going thro everything - so much new info that really ties them in to Geo Ponder Magrath & Mary Scott).

Hamilton's death info has his occupation as 'Carlaten' - do you think this was as in 'Charlatan', unqualified health/ potions person??
Thanks

Must have been 1870 - Hamilton was born 1848 and was 22 years.  I'll be back in a mo when I've checked.

Well - that kept me busy for a few days!! ; :)  Thank you so much to all of you.
Haven't quite finished all the cross-checking but nearly ....
The 1870 Census family definitely ties in to my Geo Ponder Magrath & Mary Scott  - a whole host of children who just do not appear in the Irish records that exist.
A few incognitos, don't know if you are able to clarify??:
1. Catherine Magrath b1859 Ireland who married Burt Somers is a very likely candidate for a sibling. I can find a Burt Somers in Lincoln New Mexico 1900, who was b1864 Maine, widowed - but nothing else to firm up suspicions of family link.
2. In the 1905 Bronx Census Catherine Burke Magrath  is with her one surviving child Margaret Magrath Terry & gdgtr Pearl Terry & 2 gchildren surnames Shields.  So whose children were the Shields they I wonder ???
3. Thanks so much for the Springdale, Ct Cemetary link - this gave a list of burials in which I found previously unknown husband of Marian Magrath Walker, Dr JK Walker - the probable link for Marian & Wm B's burial there  :)
4. Charles V Magrath has been a mystery. Some time ago I did find a ref to a Charles V, carpenter in Fairfield Connecticut in 1920 which seemed unlikely as he was always a Clerk and would have been 80.  But now your amazing finds have produced Hamilton Thomas's gson Robert Hamilton Magrath as dying in 1992 in Fairfield, CT - so I wonder if there is any evidence around for our Chas V Magrath, born about 1841 Dublin, Ireland living/dying in the area?
Many thanks
