Dear Vickie,

I remembered seeing your posting. I believe we chatted as my maternal great grandfather was a Fitzgerald in Perry County, PA. He married Loamie Mame Freeburn. Yesterday I found my grandmothers death certificate and voila there it was Steven Fitzgerald her father. I also saw the Frank and Annie M. Fitzgerald you mentioned in your posting. Makes me suspicious because my grandmother was Anna Menetta Fitzgerald - could be the reusing of Steven's mother's name. Steven died in a train accidnet on Aug 2, 1906. Anyway, in searching Perry County I found the following:

Mary C. Fitzgerald m. James G. Sharon
17 April 1901 in Newport, Perry County, PA
Parents: Frank & Annie M. FitzGerald
Parents: W.W. and Mary F. Sharon

The spouse was an attorney. I bet this is the Mary in your posting. She is listed as 21 years old, and the groom is 32.

Hope this helps and maybe we can work on this one a bit more as I still suspect Steven may have been a member of this family. Unfortunatley not sure when he and Loamie Married but it had to be before 1894 when my grandmother was born. Does the Fitzgerald family show up in the 1880 census in Harrisburg or Perry County?
