St Augustine College, Brooklyn, New York ... Mary Mulligan 1940 onwards?
« on: Friday 10 January 20 12:05 GMT (UK) »
I am researching a lead from a family member in a letter. Mary Mulligan, my great aunt was supposed to either finish her education, or become a teacher here. I canít get any inroads into this, either yearbooks or even if this school/college is in the right area of New York? Mary was born 1903 in Scotland, emigrated to the USA in 1925, married in 1933 to John Mulligan, had two children, (*) and (*), who I also cannot trace. She died 1966 in Florida.I was hoping to trace even a yearbook from this lead StAugustines College. ring a bell with anyone? Thank you, Kathy

Do you have her in 1930 census?

Here she is with John and children in 1940 but you donít give her maiden name for 1930 search. Was she a student/teacher then perhaps?

I can see a 1933 marriage in Kings Co NY (via https://stevemorse.org/vital/nymarriages-igg.html?index=groom ) of John Mulligan to a Mary B Ryan, the only John Mullig* to a Mary marriage that year.

Mary B Ryan came into the US in 1929, having previously been in the US 1925-1929.  Address given in the US was that of a friend, Mrs Mary Carpenter, 423, Clinton Avenue, Brooklyn, NY.  Her occupation is governess.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:24FS-JPY

In 1930 a Mary Ryan b. Scotland is living with a Carpenter family, headed up by banker James Carpenter and his wife Mary - she is listed as a nurse but may mean nurse/nanny to their younger children in this context as opposed to a medical nurse.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X4JH-CJ2

It would be good to know exactly what the wording in the letter says. If she came into the US as a young woman in her 20s and was working as a governess, it doesn't seem out of the question that she was a teacher before her marriage - but I can't find a St Augustine's College in the NY area.

There is a St Augustine's which is a RC church in Brooklyn: https://staugustineparkslope.org/

Hi Heywood, she was Mary Bonar Ryan before her marriage. I didnít know she had gone back to Scotland in 1929, I know her mother was ill and died in 1930 .. maybe a final visit?
New information, nurse/nanny, thx so much.

Sandra, thx for Obituary. Are these available for free online?

I canít find St Augustineís College either in Brooklyn.
Will post what I have.
Thx guys.

Mary was a teacher, she completed her education at St Augustines College  she taught for 30 years in Brooklyn. She married John Mulligan from Edinburgh. Molly as she was known was former vice-state Chairman of the Junior Daughters of America and was an active Girl Scout. Her sister Eleanor was with her in Florida where she died. She was survived by 2 daughters.

This is what I have.

Daughters were Joan and Betty Mulligan , kings, Brooklyn, NY from 1941 census. I have not one single lead as to how to trace them.
