Looking for info on the marriage of a Jack Mooney to a Louise D. Gross and their descendants. Marriage would have been in the 1940's (?) They may have moved to Maryland at some point.

Probably don't link. I reach dead ends. The Mooney family that I am researching is Martin Joseph Mooney born 1907 and his father of the same name. They lived in Pittsburgh on Fairacres Avenue. Don't know a wifes name only the Sr. Mooney's was Grace Dowd. Maybe someone out there will be able to help us.

Surnames: Mooney & Dowd
Martin J Mooney, my grandfather, Martin J Mooney, my uncle, & the Beechview Mooneys

Greetings from the 'BurgH. I am very familiar with whom you are looking for. Martin J Mooney was my grandfather, borne here. My mother, Margaret, at 88, is the youngest of the "Beechview Mooneys" (1711 Fairacres Ave) & unfortunately, the last. For as many times as we visited Beechview, I know that section of the City as well as I know my own.

I have more on both the Mooneys & the Dowds. Martin J did marry my grandmother, Grace Dowd, in 1899. Their only son who lived into adulthood would be my Uncle Mart who married Mary Agnes. Grandpaw Mooney was borne here in Pittsburgh, with both of his parents, Michael Mooney & Elizabeth Roach, coming from Ireland, separately. Eliza (shown both ways) died very early at 35 in 1885, while Michael died a widower in 1921 at 71.

On the other side, at the age of 7, my grandmother, Grace A. Dowd came with her parents, Charles Dowd & Ann (McGonigle) Dowd & her 2 brothers, John & Rodger, from Randallstown, County Antrim, on the State of Indiana, Sept 19, 1884. See http://www.castlegarden.org for the 5 of them. The Dowds & the Mooneys are buried here in either St Marys in the Lawrenceville section or Calvary Cemetary in the Hazelwood section of Pittsburgh. Just out of curiousity, how are you related or why are you researching them?
