You’re welcome Tiswell. My interest in your ancestry was purely genealogical. I wanted to see if I could confirm some of the records you found, and to also see if more information could be uncovered about your ancestors through other applications, such the Latter Day Saints and Irish Family History Foundation websites.

In addition, I believe that Michael Kinane did have second family. If you recall from my first reply, I located the death record for John Edmund Kinane, son of Michael Kinane and Bridget Britt. John Edmund was born on 10 September 1904, and died on 1 May 1916. Below is his death index from the LDS website for quick reference:

I also found his mother Bridget’s death index at the LDS website. This index shows that Bridget died in Wiota, Wisconsin 0n 25 September 1904. The death index also notes that she was born in Ireland around 1866, that she was married at the time of her death, that she was buried in Argyle, and that her husband was Michael Kinane:

A copy of Bridget’s death record can be found in LDS microfilm number 1306209, which you can order from your nearest Family History Center.

Bridget died only 15 days after her son John Edmund was born. I have a theory as to why John didn’t live with his father, but with William C. Kinane’s family. It may be that Michael blamed his son John for the death of Bridget, who could have died due to complications of child birth. This is only a theory, of course.

Records show that a year and a half after Bridget died, Michael Kinane married Catherine McGrath in Argyle, Lafayette County, Wisconsin, on 21 February 1906. The marriage index below from the LDS website, shows that Michael’s parents were James Kinane and Joanna O’Neill, while Catherine’s parents were Patrick McGrath and Ann O’Neill:

The marriage record for Michael and Catherine can be found in LDS microfilm number 1292007. I hadn’t come across information in your Family Tree at Ancestry.com that Michael’s parents were James Kinane and Joanna O’Neill. I’ll have more information about James Kinane and Joanna O’Neill, as well as Patrick McGrath and Ann O’Brien, a little later.

Next I found Michael and “Katherine” in the 1910 census in Wiota, Wisconsin. In this census the surname is spelled “Kinnane.” The census shows that Michael is a 44 year old farmer married for four years, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1886, and who became a naturalized citizen. The census gives his marital status as M2. This stands for marriage number 2.

The census also shows that her marriage to Michael was her first marriage, designated by M1. Katherine is shown to be 44 years old and born in Wisconsin, though her parents were born in Ireland. She is also shown to have had 1 child born to her, and that this child is still living. The only child in the household who is less than 4 years old is 3 year old Mercedes Kinnane, born in Wisconsin. The other three children in the household would be from Michael’s first marriage. These children are 12 year old Willie; 10 year old James; and 9 year old Thomas. Also in the household is a “Hired Girl,” 20 year old Sarah Anderson, born Norway.

The family in the household enumerated just after Michael and Katherine, is that of 36 year old John McGrath, a farmer born in Ireland; his 6 year old daughter Marie, born in Wisconsin; and his 65 year old widowed mother, Mary McGrath, who immigrated to the U.S. in 1847. These McGraths may be Katherine’s relatives, though I’m not sure how, as the marriage index above shows that Katherine’s mother was Ann O’Brien, not Mary O’Brien.

I also found “Mike Kinane” and family in the 1920 census for Wiota, Wisconsin. In this census Mike is a 55 year old farmer born in Ireland. He immigrated in 1889 and became a naturalized citizen in 1902. The census also shows that he owned his own home free of a mortgage. But, the census lists his wife as 55 year old Bridget Kinane, born in Wisconsin.

Bridget’s death index as well as the 1900 census, show that her birthplace was Ireland, not Wisconsin.

The circumstances behind listing Bridget as Michael’s wife in the 1920 census can only be surmised at this point in time almost 93 years after the census was taken.

It’s possible that one of Michael’s sons gave the information to the census taker. Of course, if one of his sons had given the information, he might have told the census taker that his mother was Bridget, rather than Katherine, which would have been true. In any event, this is only a guess. Perhaps the real reason that Bridget is listed as Mike’s wife in the 1920 census will never be known for certain.

The three children in the Kinane household in the 1920 census are 21 year old farm laborer Will Kinane; 17 year old farm laborer Thomas Kinane; and 12 year old Mercedes Kinane:

The 1906 marriage index for Michael Kinane and Catherine McGrath, had shown that Michael’s parents were James Kinane and Joanna O'Neill. The census returns were pretty consistent with Michael’s age, showing that he would have been born circa 1865-1866. With this information I looked for his birth or baptism index at the IFHF website. I believe I found his civil birth index, showing his birth recorded in Emly, Tipperary in 1866. His parents are listed as James Kinane and Joanna O’Neill:

In addition to Michael, below are the Ancestry.com indexes for other children of James Kinane and Joanna/Johanna. These children are Eliza (1864); Michael again (1866); Anne (1867); Mary (1868); Thomas (1871); Catherine (1872); Doragh (1875); James (1878); and Joanna (1879). The indexes list either Tipperary or Emly, Tipperary as their birthplace. James’s 1878 birth index however, gives his place of birth as “Arlamon,” Tipperary. The actual name for this place is Ardloman. Each index is accompanied by an LDS microfilm number. These individual microfilms will contain copies of the original birth records for the Kinane children.

I also found the IFHF civil birth indexes for several children of James Kinane and Johanna O’Neill. The births of all the children were recorded in Emly, Tiperary. These children include Ann (1867); Mary (1868); Thomas (1871); Catherine (1872); Doragh (1875); James (1878); and Joanna (1879).

The IFHF search engine accepted Johanna as the first name of the children’s mother in some of the indexes, while in other birth indexes, the search engine would only accept Joanna as her first name. If you order the birth transcriptions for the Kinane children from the IFHF, make sure to spell the first name of the child’s mother the way it is spelled in the indexes below:

Tiswell, in going over the indexes above, and comparing this information with the Kinanes I found in Chicago, as seen in the last reply, I’m a little confused about how the Michael Kinane in Wisconsin is related to the Chicago Kinanes, as they appear to be from different lines, though they are likely related in some way, perhaps as cousins?

For example, William C. Kinane (who adopted Michael’s son, John Edmund), was the son I believe, of Michael Kinane and Hanora Cummins. Could it be that William’s father Michael was the brother of Michael’s father James?

Next, I looked for the KInane family in the 1901 census of Ireland. I didn’t find the father and mother, James and Joanna Kinane in the 1901 census, but located what I believe are four of their children, though their ages in the census may be off by a few years when compared to their birth indexes. The address of the Kinanes is house 1 in Ardloman, Bruis, Tipperary.

These children, all born in County Tipperary, and all single, are 26 year old farmer Thomas, 23 year old Dora; 22 year old James; and 21 year old Johanna. Also in the household is a farm servant, 19 year old John Shanihan, born in Tipperary.

I also found the person I believe to be Thomas Kinane in the 1911 census living in an address of house 10, Ardloman, Bruis, Tipperary. In this census Thomas is a 40 year old famer who is married to 23 year old Marianne. The census shows that Thomas and Marianne, as of 1911, were married for 4 years, and in that time had 2 children. The children are still alive and in the household. These are 2 year old Josie Mary and 10 month old James. Also in the household are two servants. These are 16 year old Bridget McNamara and 20 year old Patrick Tinnan:

CATHERINE MCGRATH


The 1906 marriage index for Michael Kinane and Catherine McGrath gives the names of Catherine’s parents as Patrick McGrath, and Ann O'Brien. The index also shows that Catherine was born in Wiota Township, Wisconsin. I looked for, but didn’t find her birth index, or the marriage index for her father and mother. I looked for these at both the LDS and Ancestry.com website. You may want to look for them too in case I missed finding them.

But, I did locate Catherine and her family in the 1870, 1880, and 1900, Federal Census enumerations, as well as in the 1905 Wisconsin census. These enumerations were found at Ancestry.com.

You’ll see in the 1870 census below from Ancestry.com that 34 year old Patrick “McGath,” a farmer, has a real estate value of $3,000 and a personal estate value of $1,000. His 29 year old wife Ann is listed as keeping house. There are two children in the household, born in Wisconsin. These are 6 year old Catherine and 4 year old Amy. You’ll also notice that in the household enumerated just prior to Patrick and his family, is the family of 30 year old James and 23 year old Mary McGrath, both of Ireland. They have three children in the household. James and Patrick may have been brothers:

The families of Patrick and James McGrath are also found together in the 1880 census for Wiota, Wisconsin. In this census Patrick and Anna’s youngest daughter is named Anna, rather than Amy:

By the 1900 census Patrick and Ann McGrath have only one daughter in the household. This is 34 year old Catherine, who was born in Wisconsin in September of 1865. The census also shows her 63 year old father Patrick was born in Ireland in March of 1837, while her 59 year old mother was born in Ireland in November of 1840. Patrick and Ann are shown to have been married for 37 years as of 1900. This means they would have been married since about 1863. In the time they were married Ann is shown to have had two children, with only one alive. This means that their daughter Amy/Anna had died between the 1870 and 1880 census.

The 1900 enumeration further shows that Patrick and Anna immigrated to the U.S. in 1852. This means they would have married in the U.S., and not in Ireland

Also in the household is an orphan, 14 year old Joseph Wilson, born in Illinois in May of 1886.

The 1905 Wisconsin State Census shows that Patrick and Ann, and their 35 year old unmarried daughter Katie, are still living in Wiota. This census also shows that Patrick and Ann have an adopted son. This son is 26 year old Charles Butler, who was born in the U.S., but whose parents were from Ireland.

Also in the household are two servants, 18 year old Andrew Tagin and 15 year old John Scalon:

I had seen the name Charles Butler before, and then remembered that when I was at the 1900 enumeration for the McGraths in Wiota, I had noticed a person by the name of Charles Butler living in the household of 40 year old William and 39 year old Fannie O’Donal. This household was enumerated just before Patrick, Ann, and Catherine McGrath, and Joseph Wilson, who the census shows was an orphan..

In the 1900 census Charles Butler is listed as a 21 year old farm laborer, born in New York in January of 1879. Tiswell, you must be proud of your McGrath and Kinane ancestors, knowing that they took on the responsibilities of caring for children that weren’t their own.

Next I located Find A Grave entries at Ancestry.com for the burials of 72 year old Anna McGrath (1912); and 77 year old Patrick McGrath (1913). These records show they are buried in Monroe, Green County, Wisconsin:

I can’t be sure that these Find A Grave entries pertain to Catherine’s parents, but they may. You can view the gravestone for Patrick and Anna at the Find A Grave link at: http://tinyurl.com/chfgdz2

This link shows they are buried in Calvary Cemetery. The gravestone shows that both Anna and Patrick died in 1912, rather than in 1912 and 1913 respectively, as noted in the indexes above.

I also found a Patrick and Anna McGrath in the 1910 census living at 258 Market Street, Monroe City, Green County, Wisconsin. Again, these may be the parents of Catherine McGrath Kinane, but I can’t be sure, though Lafayette and Green counties border one another in southern Wisconsin, and are on the northern Illinois border.

The 1910 census shows that 72 year old Patrick and 69 year old Anna had been married for 44 years. The census also appears to show that Anna had 7 children, but that only one of the children was still left alive. I placed a ? after the 7, as I can’t be entirely sure if the number does represent a 7, or a 2. We know from previous records that Patrick and Ann had two children.

The census also notes that Patrick is living on his own income:

BRIDGET BRITT


Up until now I hadn’t done much research concerning Michael Kinane’s wife Bridget Britt. We know they were married in Chicago by the Rev. Daniel H. Riordan at St John’s Church on February 18, 1896. At the time of the marriage Michael was 28 and Bridget 26. Her age of 26 in 1896 places her year of birth in 1870. But, the 1900 census below shows that Bridget was 35 years old, placing her year of birth in 1865. On the other hand, her 1904 death index lists her age as 38 with a birth year of 1866.

I believe you already have seen the 1900 census for Michael and Bridget Kinane and their two children, 2 year old Willie and 11 month old Jane, showing they were living in Wiota, Wisconsin. I’ve included the census below for easy access:

Indexes from Ancestry.com shows the births of four children named Bridget Bitt between 1860 and 1870 in Ireland. None of the births was recorded in 1865, but two were recorded in May of 1864. These are for Bridget Britt, daughter of Edmond Britt and Mary Cuddihy. Bridget was born in Callan, Kilkenny on 3 May 1864. The second index is for Mary Britt, daughter of William Britt and Bridget Minnane. Bridget was born on May 10, 1864 in Bansha, Tipperary. In my first reply we saw that Patrick Kinane, son of Michael Kinane and Hanora Cummins, was born in the Bansah area.

The four indexes are below:


Ireland, Births and Baptisms, 1620-1911

You would need to find a record in the United States that gives the names of Bridget’s parents, to find if any of the indexes seen above, pertain to her. Her 1904 death index did not provide the names of her parents, but her full death record may. There is always the possibility it may not, however.

Concerning the children of Michael Kinane and Bridget Britt, we know from the 1910 census that in the household with them were three of their children. These were 12 year old Willie, 10 year old James, and 9 year old Thomas. By this time their son John Edmund Kinane had been adopted by William C. Kinane and family, and was living in Chicago with them.

These make a total of four children. But Ancestry.com indexes show that Michael and Bridget had a t least five children, all born in Wiota, Wisconsin. Only one of them, William, is named. He was born on 25 April 1898. The index also shows Michael and Bridget had a child born on 30 January 1897. I couldn’t find out what this child’s name was, but this child is not in the household with the family in the 1900 census.

The Ancestry.com index also shows a child born on 25 June 1899. I believe this child is James. I also suspect that the 11 month old “Jane” Kinane in the 1900 census, was actually James. Another child in the Ancestry.com index was born on 26 February 1903. At this point I didn’t know who this child could be, but I didn’t think it was Thomas, as the 1910 census gives his age as 9, placing his year of birth in 1901. The last child in the index was born on 10 September 1904. This would John Edmund Kinane.

Please see below for the birth indexes of the Kinane children:

Next, I found the death index of the Kinane child born in 1903. Like the birth index however, the death index did not provide a first name of the child, but shows the child was born in Wiota on 26 February 1903, and died in Wiota on 1 March 1903. The index shows the gender of the child was female, and that her parents were Michael Kinane and Bridget Britts:

I also found 39 year old widower Michael Kinane and three of his sons, William, James, and Thomas, in the 1905 Wisconsin State Census. By this time Michael’s wife Bridget had been deceased since the previous year, 1904. His son John Edmund would have been alive in 1905, but is not in the household with his family. He may have been living with William C. Kinane by 1905:

The 1940 census shows that 74 year old widower Michael Kinane is living in the household of his son, 41 year old William, and William’s 42 year old wife Agnes R. Kinane, in Wiota Towsnhip, Wisconsin. In the household is William’s sister in law, 45 year old Mary E. Kammerade. Kammerade is probably Agnes’s maiden name as well.

A copy of the census can be found at the LDS website link at: http://tinyurl.com/c8cex4b

Next, I looked for a Wisconsin death index as well as a Social Security death index for Michael Kinane, but didn’t find them. But, there are Social Security death indexes for Michael’s son William, and William’s wife Agnes that you can access at Ancestry.com if you wish to view them. Agnes died in 1977, while William died in 1995. The index shows his last residence was Janesville, Rock County, Wisconsin. He must have been about 97 years old when he died.
