Margaret Rooney PA death help
« on: Saturday 20 January 18 00:31 GMT (UK) »
Im trying to find the death for a Margaret Rooney. she moved to PA in 1876 and in 1900 she is seen living with her sister in Brisbin, Clearfield, PA with her sister Bridget Craig and her family. Bridget died in 1903. She was born in Nov 1832 in Ireland and remained single. Her parents were Michael Rooney and Mary Minnoch who were both born in Ireland but died in Scotland. Bridget was married in Scotland and had all her children there and moved to PA in 1881. Ive not been able to find Margaret on previous census records.. the Rooneys moved Scotland in the beginning of the 1850s i believe.

Any help would be great

In case it helps with the family in general, there are brief biographies of two of Bridget Craig's sons here - http://files.usgwarchives.net/pa/clearfield/bios/craig-michael.txt

Just to clarify, the 1922 death certificate gives her date of birth as 1 Apr. 1827, born Ireland, marital status as single, her father's name as Jno. Rooney born Ireland, and her mother's name as unknown Rooney born Ireland.  In the space for informant, it looks like it was the undertaker's name.  She died due to a fall from the porch.

Considering her lack of living immediate relatives, it wouldn't surprise me if the date of birth and father's name got bungled by whoever gave the information, but just thought it was worth a mention.
