Hi all,
I am hoping that someone will be able to find Lizzie Colgan born in 1886 to Patrick and Sarah Colgan who is listed in New York, Passenger Lists?  Also she had a brother callled Henry Colgan born in 1 Dec 1889.

Thanks for all your help it is very much appreciated

1908 and 1909 city directory of Philadelphia

Henry Colgan is at 3030 Fairhill Street.
1908 as a labourer, 1909 as a driver.

This would be the Uncle Henry mentioned in Lizzie's destination

1910 census Philadelphia, Erie Avenue.

Household of William McGlinn
Lizzie Colgan 22 servant emigrated 1907

also in the house is Margaret Rice 23 servant born Ireland emigrated 1908


In 1912 Henry Colgan marries a Margaret Rice, which Henry the brother or the Uncle we need the marriage certificate to find out, or maybe find them in the 1920 census.
