US Lookup Requests / Vahey, McCarthy, Hovasse - Massachusetts
« on: Sunday 09 September 18 09:01 BST (UK)  »

Mary Ellen Vahey b 7 Aug 1909 Cambridge, Massachusetts, died 13 Oct 2001, Melrose, Middlesex, Mass.

Have her in 1920 census with widowed father James Joseph Vahey, b 1875, Ireland, d 1935, Mass - Unable to locate 1910 census with mother Mary, née Bagot/Baggot born 1886 Ireland, died 10 Feb 1919 Massachusetts (my line)

By 1930 census she is still with father and 2nd wife, married with a son Lawrence J McCarthy, b 7 Sept 1928.  No father/husband listed on census. Lawrence died 2008. Possibly first husband is called Timothy, unable to locate marriage or death.

By 1940 census she is with 2nd husband Joseph Hovasse, b 1909, first son Lawrence McCarthy, age 11 and 3 further Hovasse children, firstborn a girl in c1934 then 3 sons. 2 prior to 1940 on census, the 4th son b ? after census taken.

Unsure If Hovasse children still living. So no names given.

If possible would like to find marriage details of husbands and births or bapts of all children & possible deaths/burials of her family.

Thanks if you can help, or point me in the direction of Massachusetts BMD after 1920/1930s. Any info appreciated.


The Common Room / Ancestry tree sharing with family
« on: Saturday 01 September 18 19:55 BST (UK)  »
Recently put my tree on Ancestry, which has a facility to share with those on ancestry via user names or via email with friends or family. 

Have invited a few family members to view via their email but they cannot access.

Anybody else had this problem?


It have all info on my g grandfather Thomas Baggot b 1850 from his marriage in 1873 address Shanbally, Williamstown, to death 1927 in Loughrea County Home.  Also all info on his children.  Have an extracted 1851 census address Shanbally, that names Thomas parents as Pat Bagot (Patrick?) & Biddy (Bridget) Kevany. Father deseased by 1873.

There are a few trees on Ancestry with a large number of siblings for him, no proof of connection as difficult pre 1864.  Did find a sister Bridget b 1844 who was present at the death of their mother in 1889 at  Shanbally.  She married as a spinster in 1890 from Shanbally, father Patt Bagot.

Also think there maybe a brother Patrick of Shanbally, but no idea of age, think older.

Are there any church records available I can access, to try link family and connect to possible siblings via parents.

Thanks if you can help, any info appreciated.
