I am looking for the obituaries of various Egans and Edgeworths between 1908
and 1945. Are these easily available? Where?
The Syracuse library (downtown) has a number of obits indexed on the 5th floor. I am sure there are a few there.
Since I don't make it downtown too often I make use of the Syracuse directories which we have at work (Syracuse University library). Many times they will list a death date for a person and then I can look them up in the newspapers.
I took a quick look thru a couple:
1920 Syracuse directory
Egan, Bertha married Joseph Howard
Egan, George T. died 29FEB1920 age 63
Egan, Alice R. died 23NOV1919 age 25 (town of Onondaga)
1919 Syracuse directory
Egan, Bartholomew died France 29SEP1918 age 22
Egan, Ethel L. married Walter Nolden
Egan, Ettilbert J. moved to Detroit, Mich.
Egan, Laura C. married ??
Do any of these look promising? If so, I can look for their obits or marriage records. I will also take alook thru some others.
Re: Edgeworth and Egan obits
I have records of Robert Edgeworth, died 1902 in Jersey City, NJ. Curiously, he had a relative listed on the 1870 census by the name of Bridget Eagan living with him in Jersey City. I found no other reference to her.
Are you still able to do some look ups?
I need some dates for a Mary Sugrue Lynch who died in 1927 but I do not have month so I can get her death cert. Her husband was John Lynch and he died 1951 both buried St. Mary's Cem. DeWitt. In 1920 they were living on Burnett Ave and by 1930, John Lynch, now a widower was living with his brother in law Dennis Sugrue on Huron St.
I didn't find the info you were looking for but I did find an article about the drowning of Dennis Sugrue in 1937. Do you have it? I think it may be Mary's brother.www.fultonhistory.com
Search in quotes "Dennis Sugrue"
Yes, I have it..or rather had someone copy it for me from microfilm few yrs. ago. Did someone put that on the internet because I didn't. It took some time too get that record because I had to contact Sandy Creek because it was in a different county. Yes, they were siblings.
Let me know where you saw this.
finally figured it out...did not understand at first. Printed out too small for whole page, but will manage.
Would it be possible for you to get the Obituary for George T. Egan who died in Syracuse February 1920, I think George belongs to my family in New Zealand. Have just read your "post" on Ancestry. I know it was a long time ago, but would be grateful if it was possible.
Hi Cecelia. I didn't find an obituary but I did find a funeral notice in The Syracuse Herald, 1920 (date illegible). Hope there's something that can help you.

VEIL FOR MISS EGAN
Syracuse Girl Now a Nun in
Order of Presentation.
CEREMONY AT WATERVLIET
Syracusans Attend Services When
Popular Thirteenth Ward Girl
Becomes Sister Mary Angela—Gets
Black Veil in Two Years.
A number of Syracusans returned
yesterday from St. Colman's Presentation convent, Watervillet, where they
witnessed the ceremony which transformed Miss Florence A.Egan, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George T. Egan
of No. 105 Daisy street, into Sister
Mary Angela of the Order of Presentation Nuns.
Miss Egan, who was one of the pret-
tiest and most popular girls in the
Thirteenth ward, left home last spring
to enter upon her novitiate. Her par-
ents and brothers at first entreated
her not to give up her home and the
world to retire into the life of the
cloister, for they had planned for her
a happy future such as that to which
most girls of her age look forward with
delight But, although deeply grieved
to resist their pleadings, the young
woman refused to give up the career
for which she believed that she had a
vocation and after her family saw how
deeply her heart was set on it, they
gave their consent and their blessing.
After a novitiate of two years the
Syracuse girl, who has renounced the
world and all that it holds dear for the
life of prayer and contemplation, will
receive the black veil and make profession.
The ceremony was performed by the
Rt, Rev. Mgr. Swift, vicar general, assisted by the Rev. J. Slattery. the Rev. Robert Reilly and the Rev. F. J. McMahon. The sermon on "The Religious
Life" was preached by Father Reilly.
Among the Syracusans who attended
the services were Mr. and Mrs. George
T. Egan, Mr. and Mrs. Frank L.
Woods, Miss Alicia L. Daley, Miss
Anna M. Egan, Miss Mary Woods,
Miss Helen Murray and Miss Eva Murphy.

Thank you so much for all that information, I really do appreciate your time. George T. Egan, I think, is my grandfather's brother. Now, I just need proof of his birth place in Ireland to confirm it.
Thank you again for all your help.
