Hi DoireM,
Here is a link to a website that has many early California newspapers.
https://cdnc.ucr.edu/cgi-bin/cdnc?a=q&l=en&leqX=&oa=1&src=
If you use "advertisements" to specify what you are looking for, it will come up with births, marriages and deaths. It's a great tool for early San Francisco research!
Good luck. Sheila

Hello Timothy,

Great to hear from you!

I am the descendant of Michael's sister Susan Margey.  Michael, James and Rodger (three brothers) left Donegal and settled in San Francisco.  I have done extensive research on the Margey line.  I did find the newspaper clipping with details of Harry Margey's tragic death.  So Harry would of been named after Michael and Susan's father Henry Margey and his wife was Hannah Friel Margey.

Thanks again for making contact.

Regards,
Marie

Hi Tim,

I live in the Emerald Isle, actually about 8 miles from where our ancestors lived!

Howdy!

I wanted to send a PM, but apparently you have to have 3 posts first...

Iím also a Michael Margey descendant and it looks like my uncle beat me to this thread.

Earlier in the thread it mentioned that Michael and Alice were in an online tree, and that might have been because of me as I made an online version of my tree back in Ď07.

Greetings from Houston area Texas!

Hello from Ireland, delighted to hear from a Margey cousin and from Houston, Texas too.  Michael and my Susanne were siblings.

Sorry to be so late to the party! I see this thread started over a decade ago.

My grandfather Harry, that my uncle mentioned above (his dad), the grandson of Michael Margey, passed away April 2, 2018.

I'm the oldest of the 4 grandkids, 3 by my mom, 1 by my uncle.

So assembling the data, I guess we are somewhere along the lines of fourth cousins. Hopefully I can think of a good third post to make since I'd like to know additional information you may have on Michael Margey's dad, and especially if you have ancestry above Michael's parents. Before this thread, I only knew his mom's maiden name from the death certificate info.
