I have Ellen Egan b 7-4-1831 Galway, Ireland
She married Frank Hopkins (also from Galway) on 6-26-1853 in Glossop Derbyshire England, they came to New Jersey a few years later and ended up in Illinois (Lasalle county/Marshall County) (around 1866)
and remained until their deaths.
Ellen had four sisters that I know of who also died in Lasalle county Illinois. The Egans and Hopkins families are burried in Wenona Illinois.
Mary Egan 1820 – 1895
Winifred Anne Egan1839 – 1918
Catherine A Egan1843 – 1912
By accident I found an Illinois record of death for Winifred with the last name spelled Agen. I am sure the record belongs to my Winifred Egan. It lists her parents as Luke and Mary (Reilly) as her parents. I would estimate Luke's birth abt 1800.
Do you have any of these folks in your tree? I am trying (without luck, on a hunch) to tie Ellen and her sisters to Cornelius Egan b 5-10-1825 in Ireland, (spent some time in Lasalle county Illinois) d 6-26-1900 in Grafton, Fillmore County Nebraska.
