Dear Friends:

My GG grandmother, Margaret McCullagh (who was from the Omagh area in County Tyrone) married James McGarvey and they had a daughter named Susanna McGarvey (born in County Tyrone, Ireland) and she married Edward Bradley (born in Philadelphia, PA). Susanna McGarvey died about 1944.

Does anyone have information on the McGarvey/McCullagh families from Omagh, County Tyrone?

Thank you,

Joe

My grandmother was Mary McCullagh(b 1892) near Plumbridge Co Tyrone. Can you give and more details(dates?) and if possible townland and nickname if known.
My g-m was known as Minnie ' Watt ' Mc Cullagh as the Mc C's was so numerous in that part of Tyrone.
McGarvey is also in my line so details would help.

Dear Vincent:

First, let me apologize for getting back to you so late. I was in the midst of a major house move when you sent me the question in July 2002.

My second great grand father was James McGarvey (of Ireland, probably from County Tyrone). He married Margaret McCullagh in the 1800s (dates unknown). Their daughter, (my great grandmother) Susanna McGarvey, was born in Omagh, County Tyrone---that is for sure). She married Edward Bradley who was born in Philadelphia, PA (which is my birthplace too). They had four children, Marie (who married my grandfather, Frederick C. Gibson), Catherine,(who married Frederick's brother, Robert Gibson), Margaret, and Edward Joseph. Susanna McGarvey Bradley died about 1944 in Philadelphia, PA.

As you have mentioned, there are a lot of McCullagh in and around Omagh.

If you have any information that can help me in my search, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Joe

You can say that again, there are a lot of McCullagh's around Omagh and I'm one of them. However I left Omagh in 1955 and now live in Canada. I too am trying to trace ancestors. I want to share a little story with you if I can. I was in Omagh in 2002 (first time in twenty years) and it was such a pleasure to have someone call me by the correct last name. That certainly doesn't happen in Toronto!!

Good luck!

Looking for help with McCullagh and McGarvey line from Cty Tyrone and Phili, PA. My g-granmother was Mary McCullagh, who married Patrick McGarvey, not sure when or where, both from Cty Tyrone (don't know the town). They had one daughter - Margaret Mary McGarvey (b-3/9/1884, d-6-24-37), who married John Patrick Conway, a postman on 10/11/1911, in Phili, PA (John- b-2/25/1871, d-7/9/1944). They moved from Phili to Atlantic City, NJ in the 1920's and had 4 daughters- Marie, Anna Rose, Patricia and Eileen (Dolly). Many children from the 4 daughters.
Mary McCullagh had many sibblings - Peter J. McCullagh (a priest in Phili), also possibly Alice, Jane, Rose, MaryAnn, Annie, and Edward. The McGarveys and Conways are buried at Holy Cross Cemetary, in Yeadon , PA.
Any help would be great.

Don't know if there is any connection but my great grandmother was Mary McCullagh (or augh?), she had a brother Peter J. (maybe other siblings not sure). They came from count Tyrone, to Phili, PA. Mary McCullagh married Patrick McGarvey. They had one daughter Margaret Mary McGarvey who married John Patrick Conway in 1911.

Ther are so many McCullaghs in some parts of Tyrone that they allocated nicknames. My g-m was Mary MCCullagh but she was know locally as Minnie "Watt". Its likely that you people were from Plumbridge or the Glenelly Valley.
Can you estimate their likely marriage date and I am assuming that they married in Tyrone?
Have you a date for their emigration?The priest is also a good link.Was he trained in Ireland?

The McCullagh's that I am searching once upon a time lived in Glenelly Valley in "clougtheny-GLEBE" said to arrive in Glenelly from Inisowen. When the 1st road was being made between Omagh and Cookstown a Glenelly McCullagh was working on it and met his futre wife Kate Keenan. For distinition reasons "John Kates". Apparently there are "Hugh Kates" who may still be in Glenelly Valley. And there are "Charile Kates" in Rosyth. John and Kate named one of their children John he married Ann Monaghan and one of their children was named Michael who married Margaret Devlin and they named one of their children John who married Mary Innes. Then we hit the generation of my Father then myself. I still don't have all the info that goes with this bit of info. But if anyone else does......... I'd appreciate hearing/reading what you have. Thanks

Oh and I belive that the John McCullagh who married Mary Innes is the uncle of (this particular) Margaret, it is possible her Father was Michael as this John McCullagh had sisters named Mary Ann, Matilda and Cassie. His brother's were Patrick, Michael and Willie. Their Father Michael died at the age of 37 and as a result his Mother was known as "Margaret the widow" I believe they were living in Upper Belix at the time.

I finally made it to Phila, PA. I only had time to go Holy Cross Cemetery where I could not find the caretaker, but did, with the help of my husband find the grave site for my g-grand parents McGarvey- (Patrick McG and Mary McCullagh), as well as my g-parents John Conway and Margaret Mary McC McGarvey. The headstone says that my g-g-parents were from Cty Tyrone, with no additional info. I brought my mother along who had not been to the gravesite in 55 years.

I then made a trip to Old Cathedral Cemetery to look up Conway relatives, where I found an impatient caretaker, who let me look through only a couple of the cemetery records books, to no avail.

I plan to start on the census records soon. I do have a letter dated 1871 from the family priest, Peter J. McC, written while he was at St Charles College in Ellicott City, MD- I believe that this is where he got his early training pre-priesthood. My mother says that he was called Uncle Doctor, because he had a Doctorate in Philosophy -although I am not sure from where it came.

Still taking baby steps and enjoying every one of them.

I still have not made a connect back to a specific area of County Tyrone- But here's what I have learned since my last post-
I visited Holy Cross Cem., Phila, PA - learned that Patrick McGarvey and Mary McC were definitely from County Tyrone, Ire - the headstone is clear on that, just not sure where in Cty Tyrone. Patrick died 7-25-1911, and Mary McC McGarvey died 7-27-1917. From what I can tell I would assume that they got married in Cty Tyrone somewhere between 1870 and 1885, although they may have gotten married in the US. Just not sure yet and I do not have emigration dates yet.

The priest I referred to was definetly trained in the US, with early training in Ellicott City, MD at St Charles College, which burnt down in early 20th century. Peter was the appointed rector of St Mary's Catholic Church, Lancaster, PA in 1883 and died in 3/1/1910 and is also buried at Holy Cross Cem., Phila, PA. I sent the church a request for info., but have not heard from them yet.
