Looking for help on Pierce Britt who married Johanna Cagney.
1880 census shows them in Buffalo, Erie, NY USA
Pierce age 40 born in IR
Mary age 35 born in IR
I am hoping to work in reverse to see if this is my Johanna Cagney nee Ahern
Johanna Ahern marries Daniel Cagney pre 1845,presumably in Limerick. The Cagney’s baptize two children one named John and the other Mary. One in Kilcolman/Coolcappagh 1845 and the other in Ballykiely townland 1848. I have no info on marriage place or date of Johanna and Daniel.
I have no info on marriage or emigration or passenger lists to America. Next thing you know Johanna is in Cairo IL advertising in the Boston Pilot for her brother Owen Ahern
The next lead is Johanna Cagney in the 1870 Census; age 70; Widow; 10th ward; Buffalo; Erie County; 21 June 1870;dwelling 720
She was living with her daughter Mary and her son Pierce Britt. What is puzzling to me is that Pierce's family is buried in Orleans County in Ridgeway New York.
there is death of jc in erie county 1899 trying to find info on that
