Looking for family of Patrick Taggart & Mary Mulholland
« on: Friday 02 October 09 15:08 BST (UK) »
Searching for any info on the following family which emigrated to Westfield, Bureau, Illinois from Scotland (On 6 June 1904 they arrived in New York, USA):

PATRICK TAGGART was born on 4 September 1861 in Kirkintilloch, Dunbartonshire, Scotland. MARY MULHOLLAND (Patrick's wife) was born on 23 September 1865 in Kirkintilloch, Dunbartonshire, Scotland. Patrick, aged about 22, married Mary, aged about 18, in Dunbartonshire, Scotland in about 1884.

They are both recorded in the 1910, 1920 and 1930 census in Cherry, Westfield Township, Bureau, Illinois, USA.

They had ten children:
Patrick TAGGART b about 1885 Sco
Sarah TAGGART b about 1888 Sco, d bef 1904 in Sco
Katherine TAGGART b about 1890 Sco, d bef 1904 in Sco
Mary TAGGART b about 1892 Sco
Francis (Frank) TAGGART about 1893 Sco
Helen (Ellen) TAGGART about 1895 Sco
John TAGGART about 1899 Sco
Edward TAGGART about 1900 Sco
Margaret TAGGART about 1903 Sco
Sarah Taggart103 about 1905 Illinois, USA

Additionally, from 1920 and 1930 census info there are 3 grandchildren b in Westfield (Mary, Patrick, Margaret) living with Patrick and Mary.

From census info their eldest son Patrick by 1920 was widowed and living in Racine, Wisconsin.

Any help greatly appreciated.

All the sons are of the age where there may be WWI and/or WWII Draft Registration Cards available for them, which should give you dates of birth.

WWI card - Patrick Taggart, born 25 Mar. 1885, living in Cherry, Bureau Co., Ill.

WWI card - Edward Francis Taggart, born 11 Mar. 1900, living in Cherry, Bureau Co., Ill.

WWII card - Frank Taggart, born 16 Mar. 1893 in Scotland, living in Cherry (Westfield Twp.), Bureau Co., Ill.

On the Social Security Death Index (www.rootsweb.com or www.familysearch.org), you can see Edward with a death date of Oct. 1983 and Frank with a death date of Jul. 1986.  There's also a Mary E. Taggart who died 23 Nov. 1996 and last lived in Spring Valley, Bureau Co., who might be a match for Frank's wife.

You can check some Illinois death records here:  http://www.ilsos.gov/GenealogyMWeb/idphdeathsrch.html  There are 4 listings for Taggarts who died in Bureau Co. - Patrick, Sara, and two Marys.

Thanks again.  Found all this info but link broken to illinois death records (have tried googling it too but unable to get in - will keep trying).

Since posting this have also found John Taggart in Linn, Ohio from 1925 married to a Gladys. 

Also got his ss death Sep 1985 in Cedar Rapids Linn.

V successful afternoon!

Just need to try and find the three grandchildren and try and find out who their parents were.

I found John & Gladys in the 1930 Census in Cedar Rapids, Iowa (not Ohio).  I found a wedding anniversary notice in the Cedar Rapids Gazette from 25 Jan. 1972 that says they were married 10 Jan. 1922 in Cedar Rapids and Gladys' maiden name was Sage.  Three foster sons attended the party.  I also found an obituary for Gladys that says she died 19 Jan. 1975 in Cedar Rapids.

Again, thankyou very much for this info.

Is there anyway to access these obits/announcements electronically (for free).  Tried to have a look for some bit sites I found were subscription based.
