Mary Teresa Creighton in New York
« on: Tuesday 06 February 18 10:03 GMT (UK) »
Hi All
Mary Teresa,known as Minnie Creighton was born in Cookstown Co Tyrone ,Ireland on 20 August 1893. She emigrated to America,arriving in New York on 8 Feb 1926,going to stay with brother Robert at 107 Holl St,South Manchester.1930 census has her working as a servant in Eastchester.
Can,t find her in 1940 census,so asking the obvious questions,did she marry?or did she die?or did she return back to Ireland?
Any guidance would be appreciated.

Just to clarify for others, that was South Manchester, Connecticut and Eastchester, New York. 

There is a Westchester Co. marriage index here - http://archives.westchestergov.com/browse-all-online-indexes-main  I don't see her, but it only goes up to 1935.

Have you looked at what happened to her brother?

This appears to be Robert's son Robert on the Social Security Death Index:  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:JK2Y-1JD

On www.fultonhistory.com, I found an article in the Mount Vernon newspaper from 1951 that refers to Robert H. Creighton, age 52, of 96 Pine Ridge Road, North White Plains, getting into a minor car accident.  I'm not having much luck finding anything later than that.
