Tavern at 691 Kennedy Boulevard, Bayonne -run by Ward family 1967

Hi,

I have come across info that members of my Ward family, originally from Donegal, ran a tavern at the above address in 1967. This is referred to in Margaret Ward's (nee Gallagher)obituary in 1967. Margaret was married to Daniel Ward who died in 1937. They had children Eugene, John, Mary (Cushing) and Margaret (Jacob).

I was wondering if anyone can recall this Tavern and also looking for anyone with links to the family.

Kind Regards
A

I remember the tavern and it turned into a Chinese take out about 8 years ago right after I moved out of Bayonne. I think the name was S&W

Many thanks for your reply. Wonder if it was still run by members of the Ward famly until then? S and W may have stood for ______ and Ward, perhaps.

Thanks again

Hi, I just came across your post and wonder if my great-aunt might be related to your Ward side of the family. My Aunt Irene's maiden name is Ward - she was born in Ireland and has lived in Bayonne for as long as I can remember. She is married to Ziggy Mackiewicz - they owned Kristianson's Ice Cream Shoppe (spelling?) in Bayonne, not sure the exact timeframe but it was probably back in the 60s. I'll ask her if she had family who ran the tavern in question.

Hi,

Many thanks for your post. That would be great if you could check . Even if your great aunt is not related she may remember the family. My Wards were originally from Cloughglass , near Burtonport, in Donegal. I think a lot of people from around the area emigrated to Bayonne.

Thanks again

Hi,

Thanks for your message. The information I have on Margaret Gallagher:

She was born Nov 10 1889 in Bayonne. Lived in Cloughglass at the time of the 1901 census. Married Daniel Ward, also of Cloughglass in 1911

Margaret's parents: John Gallagher (Neil,Tullyillan)and Mary McGonagle (Andrew). They married on Jan 8 1889 in Bayonne.

Margaret siblings in 1901 Census: Anne, Mary, Neil and Ellen

Does this information match with yours?

Thanks ,yeah I'm looking on a website called Donegal Geneaology Resources and I've gotten the same information as you but I'm going to ask my grandfather because he would have some information.I believe my great grandfather was Margaret's youngest brother.
