I'm sorry I couldn't tell you that my Patrick and your Patrick were one and the same. Somewhere down the road though, we may find out that our McGuires are connected. Patrick's father, Patrick Sr., came from a family of 14 children. At the time of his death in 1914, he had four siblings still living -- two brothers, Thomas and Michael McGuire, both living in Scranton's North End and two sisters, Alice McGuire Costello and Mary McGuire Sylvia. One or both of the sisters were living in New Bedford MA at the time of his death. From the way the obit is written, it could be that Alice Costello lived in Scranton and Mary Sylvia lived in New Bedford or both Alice Costello and Mary Sylvia lived in New Bedford.
If it helps any, Patrick Sr.'s parents were Denis McGuire and Mary Gannon. Patrick's wife was Ellen (aka Helen) McIntyre.
