McGoughs and McGues in the 1870
Census of the United States

 

These are my notes on McGough and McGue families in the 1870 census of the United States. I treat Magough as a form of McGough. McGues (and Magues when there is an indication that the origin of the name is Irish) are included because, when the name has been entered in a US census return, it often represents a family whose name was recorded as McGough in Ireland. McGows are listed only when other information identifies them as McGoughs, since McGow is most often a form of McGowan. There are "look backs" to earlier censuses that I found helpful in tracing the movements of a family from county to county or from state to state. For a comprehensive listing of McGoughs in the 1860 census, go to: McGoughs and McGues in the 1860 Census of the United States. I also list on this page several McGaughs (sometimes listed as McGaws) in Ray county, Missouri, because that family has often mistakenly been called McGough.

The 1870 census shows 77 African-Americans with the surname McGough: 31 in Georgia, 21 in Louisiana, 15 in Louisiana, 9 in Arkansas, and 1 in Mississippi. Without exception, these persons could neither read nor write. These persons are listed on a separate page: African-American McGoughs in the 1870 Census. There are cross references on this page. There were also several black McGaughs in the 1870 census of Ray county, Missouri, whom I do not list.

States and territories where I found no form of the name in the 1870 census are: Arizona, District of Columbia, Dakota Territory, Florida, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, South Carolina, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

The states in which I found a form of McGough are listed alphabetically. Under the heading for a state (or territory), counties are listed alphabetically, and then townships within counties are alphabetized. To find maps with the boundaries and locations of counties in any state, go to the US Census Bureau's website State & County QuickFacts, click on the state, and when statistics are displayed, click on view map above the search box at the upper left.

The census of 1870 was the first census to include significant recounts. New York, Philadelphia, and Indianapolis were among cities who felt that their population had been undercounted. Francis J. Walker, the supperintendent, ordered that the census be taken a second time in these cities. The second enumeration was accomplished mostly in November and December of 1870, and January of 1871. Margo J. Anderson, in her book The American Census: A Social History (Yale University Press 1990), at page 89, explains:

"Walker was the first census superintendendant who had to contend with demands from irate city boosters unhappy with the bureau's figures. The bureau ordered a recount of several places—including the cities of Indianapolis, Philadelphia, and New York. In both New York and Philadelphia, the popular notion of the population was considerably above what the bureau counted. New Yorkers believed that they had passed the 1 million mark, but the bureau initially county only 923,944. Philadelphia's first count was 657,277, while the local boosters had predicted 800,000. In Philadelphia and New York, the second count was 2 to 2.5 percent above the first, far below the claims of 10 to 20 percent undercounts. In Indianapolis, the new numbers were significantly higher. The city, a Republican stronghold, had hoped to reach a population of 50,000 at the ninth census and was thus devastated to learn that the initial count was under 41,000. It was also the home of the powerful Republican senator Oliver Morton. After a complicated series of appeals and discussions, Walker authorized a recount that resulted in a 19 percent increase in the Indianapolis population. In the 1870s, though, little was made of this undercount, both because the southern states were already reaping a bonus in congressional seats and electoral votes from the abolition of slavery and because few whites were seriously looking for growth in the black population."

Althugh the second enumeration figures were available on microfilm, they were not indexed by NARA. Ancestry.com has now indexed these second enumerations and made the microfilms available on their census pages. I have been adding them to this page, and I am also undertaking to identify the second enumerations as such with the date the count was made. Data on both enumerations were to be recorded as of the official enumeration date of June 1, 1870, but the execution of the second enumeration was not always perfect on this point..

There were some strange permutations between the first and second enumerations. Here is an illustration of the difficulty of finding the same household in the indexes of both enumerations. In the first enumeration of Philadelphia, 20th Ward, 66th District, taken on June 4, 1870, this household was listed:

(1870) William Coll, age 66, tavern keeper, real estate $3000, personal property $500, born in Ireland (roll M593_1407, page 428). [Indexed by Ancestry.com as William Call, born in 1804.]

Jane McKenna, age 40, house keeper, born in Ireland.

Mary J. Conway, age 18, born in Pennsylvania to parents who were foreign born.

Wm McGuckan, age 16, attending school, born in Pennsylvania.

In the second enumeration, taken on about November 19, 1870, the same household appears this way:

(1870) William Coll, age 60, at 1500 Sixth Street, P.O. 1710 Warnock Street (roll 593_1434, page 231). [Indexed by Ancestry.com as Welleaney Coll, born in 1810.]

Jane McKenna, age 40.

Wm McGuckin, age 16. [Indexed by Ancestry.com as Kir Fun McGue.]

Mary Conway, age 20. [Indexed by Ancestry.com as Mary Lonsway, born in 1850.]

In coming up with the comical name Kir Fun McGue, the indexer of the second enumeration misread the abreviation of the first name, Wm, as Fun, and the last syllable of the last name, McGuckin, as Kir, and transformed that syllable into a middle name. Because the name in the census is actually McGuckin, not McGue, I do not include the entry in my tables below.

Notice that the second enumeration of Philadelphia provided a street address, which is not usually found in the first enumeration, but did not provide an occupation or place of birth of the person enumerated, or much of an information other than name and age. Nor did it provide the place of birth of the parents.

Occasionally, a family designated as McGough in the first enumeration became McGue in the second enumeration. For example, this family appears in Philadelphia, 3rd Ward, 7th District, in the first enumeration of June 4, 1870:

(1870) Peter McGough, age 50, laborer, with personal property worth $300, born in Ireland (roll 1388, page 313a)

Catharine McGough, age 50, keeping house, born in Ireland

Mary McGough, age 13, at school, born in Ireland

James McGough, age 11, at school, born in Ireland

Peter McGough, age 9, at school, born in Ireland

Here is how the same family appeared in the second enumeration of Philadelphia, 2nd Ward, 2nd District, on November 15, 1870:

(1870) Peter McGue, age 35, at 1228 Francis Street (roll M593_1416, page 440).

Catharine McGue, age 40.

Mary J. McGue, age 14.

James McGue, age 12.

Peter McGue, age 10.

(To complicate matters, the district boundaries were changed between the first and second enumerations. Maps showing the district boundaries for the second enumeration are at the Free Library of Philadelphia map department.)

"Picking up historic plantations in the Deep South by wealthy Yankees was once an easy matter. It was new money to a poor but proud land. George F. Baker invaded the Glennville section when he became owner of the great domain of the McGoughs, whose pillared house preserved the romatic legend of wealth and ease and fine living. But not many of the storied mansions of Barbour county have changed hands."]

While some of the mining boom towns faded away once gold fever died down, other settlements such as Downieville and Sierra City have remained."

"McGough Family History Traced to Early Lincoln

"Catherine and Ella McGough, two prominent teachers, who have served this community in the educational field as teachers, and who have participated in the civic and religious affairs of this community for several decades, trace their ancestry to the early settlers of this community. ...

"About this time [1857] their paternal grandparents came to this country, with the influx of Irish immigrants. Andrew J. McGough, born in County Louth, in 1831, and Miss Catherine Clarke born in County Meath in 1832, were two of the immigrants, who soon met after arriving in Boston, Massachusetts.

"By 1860 they had married and became early settlers in Prairie Creek Township. It was a wild waste of low swampy land. They lived to raise six boys. The land was changed into a rich productive farm. Mr. McGough was a public spirited citizen and hailed with delight the rapid development of this far famed prairie. He lived to see a land increase from $15 to $150 an acre, and to see a swampy prairie changed into one of the most beautiful and productive portions of Central Illinois. . . .

"Within a distance of a few miles [from] where these pioneers settled it is no wonder that Mary Hickey born 1860 and Hubert McGough, born 1861 met and were married in St. Patrick's Roman Catholic Church, Lincoln. To this union were born two daughter, Catherine and Ella. They bought a farm three miles southwest of town, and had the opportunity of watchin Postville develop into Lincoln, and their daughters have watched the growth of Lincoln every week. From childhood in horse and buggy days it was a weekly trip to Mass every Sunday, over what is now U. S. City 66, on Fifth Street. In 1909, the McGough family moved to Lincoln in the present home of 217 Fourth Street. In 1914, Hubert McGough who spent his youth on the banks of Prairie Creek was called to his eternal home. His human life-span was only fifty-two years, but his life was gentle and serene. In his heart, he carried those he loved and in health his hand was never weary and his step never failing in ministering and caring for those who were in any way dependent upon him. In 1935, after a life of service to God and her family his wife Mary departed this life."]

IL - Tazewell County

Delavan

[On December 12, 1968, Andrew McGough of Delavan, Tazewell county, Illinois, ran an advertisement in the Boston Pilot seeking information about two brothers from the townland of Killanny, parish of Killanny, barony of Farney, county of Monaghan, Ireland: Edward McGough and Patrick McGough. Edward and Patrick had arrived in the United States in May of 1859, and had both been employed by Thomas Hoye in Boston, Massachusetts. The message was: "Good News Awaits."

[The Andrew McGough who placed this ad was the Andy McGough who is listed under Prairie Creek township, Logan county, Illinois, above. Prairie Creek township was about 7 miles southeast of Delavan, and just south of the boundary between Tazewell county, to the north, and Logan county, to the south. "Andrew and Catherine Clark McGough, immigrants from Ireland, first settled in Boston, Mass., where they met and were married. In the year of 1860 they became early settlers in Prairie Creek Township (Logan Co.) on a farm west [actuallly, south by southeast] of Delavan, which at that time was a wild waste of low swampy land, selling for $15 an acre."

[*This listing was called to my attention by an April 26, 2006, email from Joe Johnston:

"Hello Hugh: I've spent several hours with your web pages and thank you profusely for all the work you've done gathering and posting all that material. My descent from Miles McGough of Harford County, MD, is:

Miles

Thomas

John

Phillip

Lauretta (Lottie) m. James Bennett Johnston

Henry William Johnston

Joseph Henry Johnston

"These McGough and Johnston lines met up in Neosho County, Kansas, a few years after the Civil War. A Catholic mission to the Osage Indians, had been established there, at a place called Osage Mission, now St. Paul, in 1847. After the Civil War, the government moved the Osages to Oklahoma, opening their former reservation in Kansas to white settlement.

"My great, great grandfather, Absalom Johnston, married Elizabeth Thomas, a Catholic descendant of people from the original Maryland colony, St. Mary's County, and converted to Catholicism, in Kentucky. I imagine that the desire for new land near a Catholic church is what impelled both families to move to Neosho County, Kansas. I can't think of any other reason!

"I have some information about some descendants of Phillip McGough that I can send you in a Word document, if you would like to have it. You seem to have become a major depository of McGough information.

"Incidentally, I noticed that you don't have Phil's 1870 census information. That, no doubt, is because the enumerator listed him as 'McGoe', which is how we pronounce it, and you list only McGoughs and McGues.

"Again, thank you for sharing.

McGough, age 43, farmer, holding real estate worth $500, born in Livingston city, Kentucky; his wife, Dicey F., age 27, born in Caldwell county; and son, John B. McGough*, age 3, born in Caldwell county. (roll 194, page 305b) (Indexed by Genealogy.com as "McGongle, John G.") The IGI says that this is John Stevenson McGough, born in Pennsylvania on February 15, 1807, who married Dicey Terrissa Harper in Caldwell county, Kentucky, on November 20, 1844 (and his second wife, Loretta B. Avery on April 22, 1860). The IGI says that the parents of John Stevenson McGough were John M. McGough and Elizabeth Stevenson; that John M. McGough was born in Pennsylvania on October 20, 1763; married Elizabeth Stevenson on November 23, 1797 (probably in Livingston county, Kentucky); and died on November 19, 1816. Elizabeth Stevenson was born in Livingston county, Kentucky, on April 4, 1774, and died on February 14, 1841.

Adeline Avery, age 38, a domestic born in Tennessee, was living in the same household, probably his sister-in-law. Loretta was apparently John Stevenson McGough's second wife. The IGI says that John S. McGough married Loretta B. Avery in Caldwell county on April 22, 1860, and that this is the John Stevenson McGough, born in Pennsylvania on February 15, 1807; and that Loretta B. Avery was born in Tennessee.

This same Nancy McGough is shown by the 1860 census living in Belle Fontaine (spelled Belfontain on the census form), Choctaw county, Mississippi, with the children listed above, and older sons James, then age 21, farmer, born in Alabama, and Andrew, then age 17, farm laborer, born in Mississippi. Nancy Childers had married James Madison McGough (his second marriage) in Talledega county, Alabama, on July 8, 1836, according to Carolyn McGough Rowe's A Glimpse of the Past, pages 79 and 140. James Madison McGough had been born in Christian county, Kentucky, in 1810, to John McGough and Elizabeth "Polly" Brooks. John McGough was the oldest son of Robert McGough and Agnes "Nancy" McWhorter, who moved their family from Alabama to Hopkinsville, Christian county, Kentucky, in about 1809, and back to Dallas county, Alabama, in about 1819.

John McGough married Elizabeth "Polly" Brooks on June 22 1810, in Christian county, Kentucky. (The marriage records spell his surname McGue.) Their son. James Madison McGough, was born there in 1810. This James McGough is shown in the 1850 census of Choctaw county, Mississippi as age 40, a mechanic, living with his wife Nancy, age 34, born in Kentucky. Children were: John, 18, a farmer (the product of James McGough's first marriage to Mary Ann "Polly" Rasberry on October 15, 1832, in Bibb county, Alabama. Polly died in 1832, probably in childbirth.); Thomas, 14; James, 10 (James Lamar McGough, born August 13, 1838; in Talladega county, Alabama; died September 21, 1923, in the Confederate Home in Austin, Texas); Mary, 8; Andrew, 6; George, 5; Tabitha, 2; and Holland, 6 months. John, Thomas, and James , were born in Alabama, the younger children in Mississippi. This indicates the family moved from Alabama to Mississippi around 1841 or 1842. James Madison McGough died before the end of 1860, and sometime after fathering his youngest child, Matilda, who was born in 1857.

(1870) J. L. McGough, age 32 (mistakenly shown on the census form as 13), farmer, with personal property worth $735, born in Alabama (one property removed from Nancy McGough, above).

[There were several McGaugh families in this township in 1870. Generally, I have not included McGaughs in these census summaries. This family was indexed as McGough in the 1860 census of Ray county (Knoxville township, Richmond P.O.), however, and I have therefore included it both in my 1850 (where it is indexed as McGaugh) and 1860 census pages. The 1860 index entry may have misread the handwritten census records, where the name is closer to McGough, but can also be read McGaugh. Most other records spell this family's surname as McGaugh, but it occasionally appears as McGough. In the 1880 census of Ray county, the surnames of a few of the fragments of this family that I have been able to identify appear as McGaw.]

McGough in the 1860 census of Ray county, Knoxville township, Richmond Post Office. In this census, John A. McGaugh is listed in household and family #64; and Louisa McGaugh and the children are listed in a separate adjacent dwelling and family #65. Despite this entry, in view of the 1860 census entry, they should be considered as one family. To add to my confusion, #65 is also used for the dwelling and family of James Crowley, next door, where Samuel McGaugh, age 18, was residing. (see below)]

(1870) Louisa McGaugh, age 42, keeping house, real estate $2500, personal property $50, born in Tennessee, cannot write. [The name "Louisa" is my interpretation of blurry writing on the census return, and is made with the help of the 1860 entries for this family. In this census, John A. McGaugh is listed in household and family #64; and Julia McGaugh and the children are listed in a separate adjacent dwelling as family #65. Despite this entry, in view of the 1860 census entry, they should be considered as one family. Louiza Maze (elsewhere Mayes) married John A. McGaugh on September 12, 1844, in Ray county, Missouri.

Williams, age 68, a farmer, with two children at home: Enna Williams (Rowena or Ena), age 24, born in Missouri; and Carl Williams, age 22, a laborer on the home farm, born in Missouri.

"Explosion and Fire at the Dudley Observatory. (From the Albany Journal, Dec. 17).

"The alarm sounded from station No. 83, shortly after 7 o'clock last evening, was caused by a slight fire which occurred at the Dudley Observatory. It appears that while Joseph McGeough, an employee, was engaged in examining the retorts in the gashouse at the Observatory, one of them exploded, and McGeough was blown through the door of the building, and quite a distance beyond. Four barrels of coal tar, which is used in the manufacture of gas, and which was in the gashouse at the time, immediately took fire, and soon after the building took fire from them. The gashouse was entirely destroyed, the Fire Department being unable to procure any water in that vicinity. McGeough, the man who was in the building at the time of the explosion, and who made an involuntary exit as we have described, was fortunately uninjured, though badly blackened and considerably frightened. With the exception of the destruction of the gashouse, no other damage, so far as we could learn, was done to the property of the Observatory. The loss will probably not exceed $2,000."]

[*Here is some material from the now dormant website of Michelle McGoff-McCann:

"John McGough was born in Knockreagh, Donaghmoyne Parish of County Monaghan, Ireland, to Michael McGeough and Ann Woods in 1834. He lived on the farm with his siblings James, Michael, Peter, Rose, Patrick, and Mary until 1858. At 24 years old, he emigrated with his younger brother, James McGough sailing from Liverpool on the Aurora and arrived in New York City on July 1st, 1858.

"He first lived in Pompey, New York working on a local farm and then eventually settled in Jamesville, NY where he was a prominent farmer in the community. [Pompey is in Onondaga county, 6 to 7 miles southeast of Jamesville, and 5 miles south of Manlius.]

"He married Anne Burns and had 6 children: Ann McGough (1865–1947), Mary McGough (1867–1935), Catherine 'Katie' McGough (1869–19??), John McGough, Jr. (1871–1929), Michael J. McGough (1872–1932), and Nellie (Ellen?) McGough (1874–1942)."

James McGough and a John McGough were both privates in Company C of the 12th New York Volunteer Infantry, which was known as the "Onondaga County Regiment." James McGough enlisted in the Union Army in Elmira, New York, on May 1, 1861, and his age was shown as 21. John McGough joined as a private on August 30, 1862, in Syracuse.]

Patrick McGough, a younger brother of James and John McGough, may have enigrated in 1868. Here is material from the now dormant website of Michelle McGoff-McCann:

"Patrick William McGough was born in the Donaghmoyne Parish of County Monaghan in 1849, and the date at which he first emigrated to America is unknown. I have estimated that he may have emigrated early in 1868 since there is a Patrick McGough listed as attending church services in Jamesville, NY at St. Mary's Catholic church. Patrick's older brothers, James McGough and John McGough had emigrated in the late 1850's and were living in Jamesville. Patrick opened up a grocery, saloon, and hotel at 763 Market Street in Elmira, and first appeared in the Elmira City Directory in 1885 as a laborer living at that same address.

"I believe he married in abt.1882 to Margaret Hallinan at St. Patricks Church, Elmira, New York.

"Patrick and Margaret had 3 children: Mary Catherine, John James, and Thomas Henry."

[John McGough of New York joined the Union Army in Syracuse (Onondaga county) as a private on August 30, 1862, and on October 10, 1863. John McGough, age 19, joined the Union Army as a sergeant in Syracuse, New York, on July 6, 1863.]

[Here is information from Michelle McGoff-McCan's dormant web page about a son of Owen McGough's who was born a year after the census: John "Jack" McGough (b.July 30, 1871- d.August 22, 1941) Troy, New York:

"Owen worked as a peddler and raised his family at 393 N. Fourth Street in the 13th Ward of the city [Troy]. He didn't have an easy time of it. Not only was his leg injured after being kicked by a horse during the war, leaving him crippled for life, Owen's young wife died soon after the birth of their third child, Jack, at the age of 29. Owen quickly remarried in 1873 to Catherine Flannery (b.? - d.1908) who raised the childen: 1] Patrick McGough (b. 1863) 2] Owen Francis McGough, Jr. (b. 1865) and 3] Jack McGough (b.1871).

"Jack was a handful from an early age. At thirteen he'd been 'sent up' for stealing a pair of shoes, fancy shoes of yellow alligator hide. "Inside," Jack became adept at a variety of trades: pickpocketing, cardsharping, various forms of fraud, forgery and larceny.

"His life really took a turn on March 6th, 1894. Jack and his friend Bartholomew 'Bat' Shea were involved in the shooting of a man, Robert Ross, during a political rally. Jack and Bat went on trial, and Bat was sentenced to death for the killing. After Bat was sentenced and a date selected for his execution, Jack McGough came forward and confessed.

"After Jack's release from Clinton County prison, he returned home and married Mary (Maggie) Reilly in Troy, NY. They left soon after for San Francisco, California. Jack McGough died in 1941 in San Francisco.

"The book 'The Trial of Bat Shea' by Jack Casey (1994), is a historical novel detailing the lives of all the persons involved in this murder, trial and the events surrounding it. The murder of Robert Ross sparked an explosive backlash. Pious congregations cried for vengeance. A secret society set out to set right the wrongs committed by these 'street thugs' Shea and McGough, ended up corrupting the system in its zeal to get justice. Shea and McGough are tragic figures in a town where the deck was stacked against them by poverty, and then by the criminal justice system."

Michelle McGoff-McCann's archived website goes on to publish: Jack McGough's confession appeared in the New York Times on January 28, 1896.

"Margaret McGoff/McGaff/McGough/McGeough
Ogdensburg, New York, USA 1862 to 1872

"I am looking for any information regarding Margaret McGoff/McGaff. She was my great-great grandmother. Her story is that she, her parents and two brothers came over from Ireland during the potato famine. Her parents died enroute and she and her brothers were separated. The next listing I find regarding her is that she ended up in Ogdensburg, New York working as a servant for F.N. Burt who resided at 21 New York Avenue. He operated a tannery. The next notation regarding her is that she was married in Notre Dame Church in Ogdensburg to a Joseph Robichaud in 1872. According to my grandmother her grandmother Margaret spent a lot of her life agonizing over the fate of her brothers who she never saw or heard from again. I am looking to see where Margaret and/or her brothers may have been placed being that they were orphans for her to end up in Ogdensburg. Margaret was young enough when her parents died that she didn't know the date of her birth and had trouble remembering her brother's names."

F. N. Burt is listed in the 1860 census of the village of Ogdensburg (2nd ward), Saint Lawrence county, New York: age 42, operator of a "tanner factory," born in New York, with his wife Olivera, five children (ages 3 through 16), and a 17 year old servant, Mariah Burns (M-653, roll 854, page 0, line 22). In the 1850 census of Oswegatchie, Saint Lawrence county, the same family is listed under Franklin Burt, age 34, in the tanner business (M-432, roll 589, page 118, line 28).

Mary McGough married a man with the same surname as hers. Whether there was any blood relationship between Mary and John McGough is not known.]

[Here is material on John McGough from the now dormant website of Michelle McGoff-McCann:

"John McGough was born in County Louth to Michael McGeough and Mary Farrell on August 30, 1844. He had 3 siblings, Michael, Ann and Bridget all living in the Darver Parish. The family emigrated to America in the Spring of 1850, just 5 years after the start of the famine in Ireland.

"The family settled in New York State. John eventually moved to Yates County, in the Town of Milo. On August 30, 1862, John enlisted at Penn Yan in the 44th Regiment New York State Infantry Volunteers to become a soldier in the Civil War. He mustered in on August 30, 1962 for 3 years of service. John served under Captain Munger and fought in the Battle of Gettysburg. John's service was completed in 1865.

"After the war, John settled down in Penn Yan and married a woman by the name of Mary McGough (1853–1902)—they had the same surname. Mary's father, Patrick McGough was from County Louth also, but of no proven relation to John.

"John and Mary had 4 children: Charles (b.1877 - d.1961), John H. (b.1878 - d.1959), Anna Rose (b.1894 - d.1980) and Albert George (b.1896 - d.1981).

"John raised his family and lived in Yates County until his death on September 28, 1934. At the time of his death, John was the oldest living GAR veteran of New York State who had served at Gettysburg. He was 90 years old. ... He is buried at St. Michael's Cemetery in Penn Yan, New York."]

[Here is material on Patrick McGough from the now dormant website of Michelle McGoff-McCann:

"Patrick McGough was born in County Louth in 1829. Patrick emigrated to America in about 1850 and on November 20, 1857, he petitioned to become a citizen in the City of Milo.

"A blacksmith by trade, Patrick lived, owned and operated a blacksmith shop in Milo Center. ...

"Patrick McGough married Julia Sanders (orginally of County Cork, Ireland) and had seven (7) children: Patrick (b.1850 - d.1884), Thomas [1] (b.1852 - d.abt.1863), Mary (b.1853 - d.1902), Rose (b.1857 - d.1908), Charles (b.1860 - d.1943), Thomas [2] (b.1863 - d.1907) and Katherine (b.1865 - d.?).

"The couple does appear to have had two sons named Thomas. Thomas [1] born in 1852 last appears in the 1860 census as 8 years old, attending school. By 1865, Thomas [1] is missing from the census, but instead there is another Thomas [2] who is listed as the youngest child of the family at age 1 1/2.

"In 1863, Patrick appears on a Civil War enrollment list subject to perform military duty. I have not located him as a soldier in any NYS regiment. Perhaps as a father of six and one of the town's blacksmiths, he was too valuable to be sent to war?

"Patrick's two sons, Patrick Jr. and Thomas [2] followed in their father's footsteps in the blacksmithing trade. Tragically, Patrick Jr. was struck by the cars in the train yard in Himrods in 1884. Thomas continued on the family tradition, until the late 1920's.

"Patrick McGough was an integral part of the community until his own death on February 27, 1881. He is buried at St. Michael's Cemetery, Penn Yan, NY."

[Here is part of an email of September 15, 2005 from Phyllis Goodin of Ohio:

"You have Elizabeth McGough married to Colbert Amerine in Miami County Ohio January 1850. In the 1860 census for Darke Co. OH I find a Colbert (31) and Eliza (26) Emarine with children William H (9), Catherine (8) Harrison (3) and Marla (male-5 mo). In 1870 Franklin Co. I find Eliza (36) remarried to Nelson Loring (50) with children Harrison (13) Frank (11) Marley (11) Mary (4) and Martha (2) all listed with the family name Loring. Close by on the census are William Amerine (20) working on a farm (with a Mary McGough by the way) and Kate Emerine (17) at another residence close by working as a domestic servant. This leads me to believe that Colbert and Eliza/Elizabeth had at least 4 children together, William, Catherine, Harrison and Marley. I also have Marley's death certificate which listed Eliza McGough and Colbert Amerine as his parents. Marley is my gggrandfather. In 1880 I can only find Harrison (Harry) and Marley in Licking Co. Ohio where Marley stayed till he died. I can't find a trace of any of them after 1880 except Marley."]

PA - Philadelphia County

There were two enumerations of the 1870 census in Philadelphia. Here is a good posting on Rootsweb that explains it:

"From: "Walt Stock" <waltstock@worldnet.att.net>
Subject: RE: [PHILLY-ROOTS-L] re: 1870 Census
Date: Sun, 21 May 2000 11:18:44 -0400

"In 1870, two census were taken, one at the regular time (in the summer), one later, around October-November because of claims of fraud, miscounting, etc.

"The first enumeration is indexed (in paper). Many large genealogical collections have this index. There is no Soundex to either the first or second enumeration in 1870.

"Wards were divided up into districts in 1870. To complicate matters, there were slight changes between the district boundaries on the first and second enumeration. Maps showing the district boundaries for the second enumeration are at the Free Library of Philadelphia Map Dept. Written descriptions of the boundaries for the second enumeration are available on microfilm.

"In the first enumeration, street numbers and names were NOT shown. They were shown for most entries in the second enumeration.

"There is no index to the second enumeration. [The entries are now indexed on Ancestry.com.]

"What to do? Find the family in the first enumeration index. Look at the first enumeration census pages on microfilm and make a note of the district number; it's on the top of the page. Find the family in Philadelphia city directories of 1870-71. Put them in a district for the second enumeration. Get the second enumeration on microfilm and (1) find the district (2) find the street address by scanning the pages rapidly (the street name is written across the top of the page, the numbers down the left side).

"If you can find the family on the first enumeration but not on the second and you can't find them in the city directories, try this: go back to the first enumeration and make a list of the five heads of household above and below the entry of interest. Then lookup those ten names in the 1870-71 city directories. The names will cluster around one city block or two. Put them in a district for the second enumeration. Get the second enumeration on microfilm and (1) find the district (2) find the street address by scanning the pages rapidly (the street name is written across the top of the page, the numbers down the left side).

Here is an inscription from Holy Cross Cemetery Inscriptions, St. Albans, Vermont

Name: Mary McGough
POB: Augill, Co. Monoghan [Monaghan?], Ire
DOB/AGE: 67 Yrs
DOD: 3-23-1874
Spouse of: James Agnew
Inscription: A Native of Augill, Co. Monaghan, Ire. A beloved wife & affectionate mother & faithful friend

In the 1870 census of Fairfield, Franklin County, Vermont, there is listed a Mary Agnew, age 64, born in Ireland, who could not read or write, living on the farm of Patrick Ragan, age 34, born in Ireland, and his wife, Catharine Ragan, age 31, neither of whom could read or write. The name Ragan looks like Ryan on the handwriten census return and is so indexed by Ancestry.com. (Catharine Agnew Ragan, wife of Patrick Ragan, died on November 10, 1876, at the age of 36. Catharine was probably the daughter of James Agnew and Mary McGough Agnew. Patrick Ragan, who was born in 1835, died in 1907.) Also listed in the household was Mary Ragan, age 67, born in Ireland (roll  M593_1620, page 221B; Family History Library Film: 553119). (If their gravestone in Holy Cross Cemetery, St. Albans, is correct, what appears to be Ryan on ther 18870 census return should be read as Ragan. Patrick Ragan is listed in the 1880 census of Fairfield, Franklin county, Vermont, as Patrick Regan, age 40, widowed, a farmer, born in Ireland. Living with him are five children born to Catharine Agnew Ragan, and his widowed mother, Mary Regan, age 80, born in Ireland; roll  T9_1344, page 80: Family History Film 1255344.) Irish Famine Immigrants in the State of Vermont, Gravestone Inscriptions by Ronald Chase Murphy and Janice Church Murphy (Baltimore, MD: Clearfield Co., Inc., 2000) at page 470 lists what is apparently this same inscription both under Mary Agnew and under Mary McGough (see Ancestry.com). The book, at page 474, lists the lifespan of Patrick Ragan as 1935–1907 and of Catharine Agnew Ragen as 36 years, with date of death on November 10, 1876.

On May 1, 1907, Patrick Regan, who was about 70 and and extremely deaf, was killed when struck by a train while he was walking on the tracks of the Central Vermont Railway about 2 miles from his former home in St. Albans. See: Eleventh Biennial report of the Board of Railroad Commissioners for June, 1906–1908, volume 11, by Vermont Board of Railroad Commissioners, page 194. This is doubtless the Patrick Ragan discussed in the previous paragraph.

There is a photograph of the gravestone under Mary McGough Memorial on Find A Grave (memorial# 16425884), with this description:

Thomas emigrated from Canada to the US, through New York, in 1861, moved to Eau Claire shortly after 1861, and filed a declaration of intent to become a US citizen on October 31, 1872, in Eau Claire.
