marriage of mary doherty/william mclaughlin brooklyn 1933
« on: Tuesday 28 May 19 21:54 BST (UK) »
Could some kind roots chat colleague assist me with following. I have found the birth record of my Aunt namely Mary Doherty born Buncrana Ireland April 1905.

 The Catholic church records have recorded that she married a William McLaughlin at St Caths Catholic church Brooklyn on April 16th 1933. I have contacted St Caths but they dont have any record of their marriage.

With the assumption that they got married in 1933 I cant find William McLaughlin and now wife Mary McLaughlin in 1940 US Census. Also seeking Mary immigration record from around 1920/27 under name Mary Doherty from either "Buncrana Donegal" or possibly "miniward Buncrana". Thanks for any leads.

Do you have a date of birth or year of birth for William McLaughlin?

Could this 1938 death be Mary?  https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:2W5D-JPG  If so, that would explain why you're not finding her in 1940.

Could you give us  a link to the civil registration of Mary's birth, or exact DOB and parents' names?

I have found two Mary Dohertys from Buncrana so far, arriving together in 1924. Both are saying they are 21, but one might be yours. Impossible to tell without a parent's name.

Here they are:

Arrived New York September 28, 1924, on the Cameronia from Londonderry.
line 24 on page

Mary Ann Doherty, 21, contact person: father Bernard of Ardravan, Buncrana, Donegal. headed to her aunt, Mrs Catherine Hall, 50 Lambure Avenue, Roxbury, Mass. born in Buncrana.

2 lines up:
Mary Elizabeth Doherty, 21, factory worker, contact: mother Mary Ann Doherty, of Mill Brae, Buncrana, Donegal. headed to sister in law Bridget McBride, in Philadelphia. born in Buncrana.

Mary Elizabeth's sister Francina, 19, was with her and going to the same destination.

a male Doherty from Buncrana was above them.

[Note: Roxbury is part of Boston]

Thank you, that eliminates the first one. The male Doherty in the group was a Constantine, though, if I remember right.

-------
here is another that is probably not yours, too far from Buncrana. born in Malin Head, Donegal. She was scratched from the manifest of the SS Transylvania which left Londonderry 9 June 1928. mother was Mary of Miniward, Donegal.

edit again. I should read what I am talking about before replying :) So she could be the Mary Elizabeth in that group.

So she could be the Mary Elizabeth in that group.

Mary Elizabeth was with her sister Francina, age 19, and Francina's father is named John:

So she isn't Mary Eliz. either.

One of the previous threads said that Mary emigrated to the US in Nov. 1930 traveling to a cousin Annie Owens in Philadelphia.  If that's the correct one, the passenger list is here - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33S7-95H9-8VP?i=380&cc=1923888

The 2nd page indicates that she was never in the US before, so I'm wondering if this one is her or not.
