Hi. I am looking for any descendents of David Moylan and Bridget Sullivan Moylan who were married in Omaha in 1889 and had twelve children: Julia, David, James, Frank, Marie, Michael, Madeline, Dorothy, John, Leo, Mary, and Agnes.

I have information on Bridget's two sisters Mary Sullivan Cahill and Abbie Sullivan Donohue. Hope to share information.

This is the website for Greater Omaha Genealogy Society. Although there are several marriages, when birth index and obit index are checked, there are no entries for Moylan.

There are no Moylans listed in Forest Lawn index.

They seemed to have "disappered" sometime in the 1920's.

Thank you for the information. I did get in touch with a descendent who was very helpful. I had gone to the Greater Omaha Genealogical site for the obits. The strange thing was there were Moylan's on it one day and two days later they were all gone.

Was goofing around and saw your post from january 2011 looking for relatives of David Moylan and Bridget Sullivan Moylan. Their daughter Mary is my grandmother. David had long passed prior to my birth in 1955 but I still do have vague recollections of great grandma Bridget before her death in 1959 I believe. My own father (Mary Moylan's son) is nearly 86 and still alive. If there is anything you'd like me to ask him about his many aunts and uncles (of those twelve kids and their families, there were plenty around Omaha), let me know.
