Hi Sandra,

Yes you are correct she is back home in 1901 which seems strange?

Her sister Annie went to America in 1908 was Mary away before that or after as they are both not in the 1911 census.

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Londonderry/Draperstown/Drumderg/610114/

Mc Kernon   James   22   
Mc Kernon   Sarah   24   
Mc Kernon   Teresa   18

The three above stayed at home.

Thanks for all your help as always very much appreciated

Kieran

Hi Sandra,

Thanks for your reply. Well Annie married John O'Halloran and was in Philadelphia and had four sons but there was no sign of Mary with her.

If you need more info on Annie just let me know and I can put more in.

Thanks again for all your help

Kieran

It was years and years ago and we had a few different threads but I remember the family now.   Did we find any obituary for Annie ?

Anna O'Halloran - 1894 - 3 January 1962 Philadelphia - aged 67 years.
Spouse:   John O'Halloran

Hi Sandra,

No obituary was every found but she was in a home and buried by the state.

Also none of her children had obituaries either.

Unless we look for the obituaries of the Gardiners that Mary was living with in the 1900 Brooklyn census?

Thanks again for all your help

That is sad.  :'(

Mary was a cousin of Anna McKernan Gardiner.  Presumably Anthony McKernan (Anna's father)  and Patrick McKernan (Mary's father)  must have been brothers.
 
Did you find a death notice for Patrick McKernan or Ann McNeill McKernan ?

Had another look thru the passenger lists but nothing jumping out.

Hi Sandra,

Thanks for all as always very much appreciated.

Well I have found this and it seems to be Mary going from Liverpool to New York

She is listed in Ellis Island as Mary McKenan  and arrives 3 Oct 1901.

However, I can't read where in Philadelphia she is going to its a John McKernan who could be her uncle.  So it would be after this she would become a nun.

Maybe her Nationalization will be able to be found or his death as his obituary could maybe list her ?

Thanks again for all your help so much appreciated

Kieran
