Note for:   Mary Haggerty (Hegarty),   ABT 1825 - unknown         Index
Note:   Birth information from LDS Ancestral File.

Fran found the name Mary for Thomas' wife, in John Mulhern Sr's death record at W-B Court House. Lists father Thomas and mother Mary.

I would love to find descendants of other Haggertys (Hegartys) from Killybegs, Co. Donegal, Ireland, that might be related to Mary and her siblings. I have no other information at all on Mary. Kathleen Mulhern Brophy has been to the church in Killybegs, and was unable to find any documents on Thomas and Mary's marriage.

(Francis, son, was listed as daughter Frances. This was an error.)

NOTE: Jeddo and Freeland are in Foster Township, Luzerne County. Oakdale, Drifton and Hazleton are in Hazle Township, Luzerne County. This would indicate they were living in Oakdale in 1900. They moved from Jeddo to Oakdale some time between 1885 and 1900.
