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.

1900 and 1910 census shows there were 2 surviving children of Patrick and Bridget.

Transcription records of Mount Olivet Cemetery in Reed City says Bridget's maiden name was Sullivan born 03 Feb 1838 died 04 Feb 1919 daughter of A Sullivan (

In 1937 Martin James MONAHAN filed for his social security number while residing in Wynne, Cross county Arkansas stating he was born in Hoboken, Hudson Co NJ 10 June 1866 to Patrick Monahan and Bridget Sullivan (

I find him listed in 1920-1940 census in Cross county AR wife was Minnie Lee Unknown born in Georgia in 1870 died 1958 and married about 1904 in unknown location.

Martin was conductor for the Missouri Pacific RR and died in their hospital in St Louis MO 26 July 1941. His wife did not know who his parents were (

Martin and Minnie are buried at Coghill Cem in Wynne AR (
