Nancy was the daughter of Joseph E. and Julia Desmond Scully Gorman. Julia was a sister of my maternal gg grandfather John Desmond Scully and has, until research by yours truly and a cousin, remained a mystery. Hopefully, someone reading this will reply.
What we know is Julia's first marriage was to John Crangle who died accidentally in 1850. Prior to 1858, Julia remarried Joseph Gorman and their two children, Nancy and Joseph, were born in Pittsburgh. Prior to 1870 the Gormans moved to St. Louis.
While no research to date has been done on Joseph, Nancy married Charles T. Farrar and had children Benedict, Joseph, and Jerome.
There was one child from Julia's first marriage, daughter Julia Crangle born in 1845. The last documentation of her is the 1860 census when she's living with her Grandmother Scully in Pittsburgh. After, she disappears from the records.
Perhaps - and this is a long shot - a Gorman descendent will have the answer.
