My name is Melissa Dooley Van Tassell; Anna Maria Beggs McGrane is my great-grandmother. Michael Beggs was born in Ireland. Michael and Margaret Cassidy Beggs were married in Rock County 18 Aug 1852. . Michael and Margaret had four children: Anna Maria, Patrick, Michael, and Peter. Edward, Bridget, and Margaret are their grandchildren, the children of Peter Beggs. When Peter's wife, Margret Tiernan, died, Anna Maria took the children (she had nine of her own). She raised Maggie (Margaret), and Michael II (who was not married) raised Eddie and Bridget.
Maggie married John McGhee and had five children..
Eddie married Agnes Reilly and had ten children.
Bridget married in about 1907 and had two children but I cannot find the name of her husband. Any input is appreciated. How are you related?
