hi

james died at sea in 1942, i have alot of info on him. but wht i don't have is anything on his wife other then her name anna teresa power. james was from ireland and was a merchant seaman and the last address we have for him was from a letter he sent to my husbands grand father congratulating him on the birth of my father in law. it was sent from sea in 1940 with a home address of 103 west 101st street new york. from research we have found out alot about what happened to him but we know absolutely nothing about his wife. the immegration paperwork we found has her name as anna power from drogheda and i found a marriage reference for 1929 in dublin ireland. in the letter he mentions nancy and we think that was the name his wife used but we are not sure. we do not know what happened to anna/nancy after james died and cannot find any reference that we can confirm. can anyone help with suggestions please? james worked for isthmians lines.

thanks

Found this , Anna Hughes is a common name, the dates match up on her arrival, year of birth. You didn't say of they had children, on the 1940 census there is a Anna & James Hughes. They were both naturalized before 1940 census so it shows born in NY.
Good luck in your search.

Can you provide any more information on James' age, birth date, birth place? Father-in-law's first name (so we can locate on 1940 census) etc

Hello Caron,
I found the marriage ref for your James and Anna..Anne in Dublin.
The marriage is recorded in the 1st qtr of 1930.
You will see Vol and Page No's + Reg District.
Armed with those details you should have no problem ordering a copy of their marriage certificate which will give more details + father's names for both etc.

Same for Anna Teresa Power's birth ref...you can order her birth certificate from the PRO in Ireland with the following details. It will give both her parents names and address etc.


Marriage: Name: James Hughes
Date of Registration: Jan-Feb-Mar 1930
