James Byrne and Margaret Duggan, California
« on: Monday 17 May 21 11:31 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I am looking for more info on James Byrne, who per census records was born c.1868 in ireland. Here he is 1900 in California with his wife Margaret and children
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M9G4-RXH

He died and Margaret remarried, here she is in 1910
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MVGQ-Y3S

I have come across this grave which is a possiblilty for James Byrne in 1903
https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/80002804/james-byrne
One of the photos has the surnames Weber(wifes second marriage) Amend (one of his daughters married name was Amend)
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K98Y-HPJ
It is difficult to read the age of death but it does say he was from Dublin.

I would like to find when James Byrne came to the USA and parents if possible but as he was born in Ireland he may have come over by himself.

His wifes parents were William and Mary Duggan and she was born in Massachusetts as per census records.

Ya, thats what I was thinking when I was trying to read the age, I suspected it said 70 something. It also says "single" in the description which confuses things...

Well that solves that then. Thank you RJ.
So the James Byrne on findagrave that I linked to is unrelated to my James Byrne. It's very odd that a photo of that stone with Weber and Amend are attached to that page.
