Seeking information on Patrick Moynahan/Monaghan who was born 1847 in Ireland, married to Bridget, born 1843 in Ireland. Patrick and Bridget are in Reed City in the mid 1870's along with children Martin, born 1866 NJ, Michael, born ca 1870 in IL, and Patsy, born ca 1872 in IL. Patrick and Bridget had three more children in Reed City 1876-1878, all of whom died in their first year. Patrick died on May 23, 1915 in Reed City. He was the son of Martin Monaghan and Mary Gleason. When Patrick died in 1915 Bridget was still alive. In the 1884 Osceola County Directory, Patrick is listed as a Section Foreman.

I'm looking for the maiden name of Patrick's wife Bridget and what happened to her and the three living children after 1915. Any help greatly appreciated.
