McGoughs and McGues in the 1880
Census of the United States

The 1880 federal census lists the relationship of the persons living in the household to the head of the family. When this relationship is wife, son, or daughter, and the age and relative position of the family member indicates this relationship, I have not repeated the information. When the census indicates that the member is a brother, sister, nephew, niece, grandson, granddaughter, or similar relative, I indicate that relationship when the census lists it.

On this page, I have intermingled the black and white McGoughs. This contrasts with my treatment of the 1870 census where I have segregated the blacks and whites and created a separate page on African-American McGoughs.

Patrick and his wife Ellen (Herbert) McGeough were married in Albany on September 21, 1879, and had daughters Catherine and Ellen and a son named James. "Our great grandfather Patrick McGeough Jr. was born in County Armagh, Ireland about 1857, and he was living in Albany, NY by 1879. He appears to have been related in some way to a Peter McGeough, who also was from Armagh and who was living in Albany at the same time as Patrick. Both Patrick and Peter emigrated to America from Liverpool. ... Patrick's father was Patrick McGeough Sr. and his mother was Catherine (Hanratty) McGeough. Ellen's father likewise was named Patrick and her mother was Hannah (Dunn) Herbert. ... He appears in the US Census for Albany in 1880, and he also filed a Declaration of Intention and a Petition to become a citizen in that year, which suggests that he was in America by 1875. Patrick worked as a laborer and as a teamster. He died at a relatively young age of consumption. Patrick's spouse, Ellen Herbert, was born about 1854 or 1857 in Ireland, and her parents' names were Patrick Herbert and Hannah (Dunn) Herbert. Ellen likewise died early." Patrick's sister Mary (McGeough) Flynn may have been living in Albany in the 1880s, and she died in New York, NY in 1945. Our McGeough Ancestors by Chuck Washburn.

Ann died in 1874 at the age of sixty seven. Thomas married in 1873 at the age of twenty eight. Thomas's fathers name was Andrew McGough and I believed they lived in Clontibret parish in county Monaghan Ireland. Seeking any information on other members of the Andrew McGough family." Here is part of a follow-up poting by Richard O'Connell of November 30, 2006: "Ann Mcgough died in 1874 and was buried in Thomas's and Bridget McGough family plot in Calvary Cemitary in Queens New York. Since I posted my request for help in October I have found information in the New York City Directory that Ann McGough was Thomas's aunt. Also that her son Patrick McGough can be found in the 1880 U.S. Census of New York City (7th ward). Here is a summary of a follow-up posting of January 23, 2007, by Richard O'Connell: Andrew McGough I believe was born around 1800–1810. One of his sons (Thomas's) death certificate from New York City revealed that Thomas was born around 1845 and that his mother's name was Bridget McGough. An Andrew McGough can be found in the 1838 Tithe and 1854 evaluation of tenants in townland of Drumgristin in the parish of Clontibret, in county Monaghan.

["JOHN M. McGOUGH during the past five years has gained a substantial position among the business men and citizens of Allen County, his home interests being centered at Harrod, where he is proprietor of the leading hardware store and is also local postmaster. Mr. McGough was born on a farm in Van Wert County, Ohio, August 1, 1879, son of C. A. and Arabelle (Shaffer) McGough, the former a native of Mercer County and the latter of Van Wert County. After their marriage they located on a farm in Van Wert County, but in 1912 the father sold his farm and engaged in the bakery business at West Mansfield. The mother died April 3, 1912. C. A. McGough was for many years a member of the United Brethren Church but is now affiliated with the Methodist denomination. There were twelve children in the family: John M., Clarence, Percy, Lucy, Bert, Harry and Nina, the two latter deceased, Addie, Marie, D'Arle, Ruby and Vernon.

"John M. McGough spent his boyhood and early youth on a Van Wert County farm, acquired the advantages of the common schools, and subsequently finished his education in the Ohio Northern University at Ada. Beginning at the age of eighteen he was a teacher and spent altogether six years in school work. In 1904 he entered the service of the Oil Well Supply Company at Lima as bookkeeper and later was promoted to manager of the business.

"The only fatality occurring to any of the A. E. F. in the late world war was the accidental death of Saddler Robert T. McGough, son of the late James E. McGough and Mrs. Alice Wharton McGough, although there were about twenty-eight young men of the parish in the service of the government, all of whom, however, were not overseas, and some who did not get into the strife, but would have been had the war lasted a few days longer. Following is the official report of the death of Mr. McGough which occurred on February 6, 1919:

Hqrs, 113th Co., Trans. Corps.
Camp Guthrie, Montior, APO. 701-A,
Amer. E. F., March 20, 1919.

From: Commanding Officer, 113th Co., Trans. Corps.
To: J. C. McGough.
Subject: Sadler, R. T. McGough.

I beg to acknowledge receipt of your letter of March 5th, 1919, requesting information regarding the death of Sadler, R. T. McGough of Co. 112th Trans. Corps. Sadler McGough met his death through an accident while working in one of the locomotive erecting shops of the 19th Engrs. at St. Nazarre. It was caused by a heavy box of locomotive parts falling from one of the shop cranes directly onto his body. There is every reason to believe that death was instantaneous. Though his body was conveyed immediately to the Hospital by motor car. Sadler McGough's death occurred in the line of duty. The box which caused it had been lifted off a freight car and was being carried down the shop over the line of standing cars for greater safety. McGough was aware that the box was overhead and had stepped near a locomotive standing on the next track, to be a safe distance away. At this point the direction of the box was changed to across the shop. McGough was however apparently unaware of this change for he suddenly stepped out from beside the engine to underneath the box. The whole thing was instantaneous. There was not an instant to give, warning. The box collapsing and falling from its supports the moment that McGough stepped under it. He was buried with military honors in the American cemetery in the country a short distance from St. Nazarre. His death made a profound impression on the members of the regiment, especially his own company, where he was universally respected and liked.

"THOMAS McGOUGH, attorney at law, is a son of Peter and Sarah (Marshall) McGough. The former was born near Blairsville, Indiana county, Pennsylvania, September 30, 1822, and is a son of Thomas McGough, a native of Cambria county and Catharine (Gamble) McGough, born in Indiana county, both of whom are dead. In 1848 he (Peter) married, in Venango county, Sarah Marshall, born in March, 1827, in Lawrenceburg, Armstrong county, Pennsylvania. She is a daughter of Samuel and Phoebe (Perry) Marshall, and the mother of six children: Samuel; Thomas; Doctor Peter McGough, of Pittsburgh; Phoebe; Catharine, and Blanche. Peter McGough was in early life a teacher, subsequently a merchant and banker, and for several years has been engaged in the insurance business. Politically he is a Republican, and for five years held the office of United States collector for the twentieth district of Pennsylvania. Thomas McGough was born at Parker’s Landing, Armstrong county, and came to Franklin with his parents. He received his early education in the schools of Franklin, and graduated at Princeton College in 1873. He then commenced reading law with C. Heydrick of Franklin, and was admitted, to the bar in July, 1876. Mr. McGough was married in January 1886, to Miss Lydia, daughter of General Alfred B. McCalmont. She was a native of Franklin, and died after a brief illness, November 24, 1889. In 1879 Mr. McGough was elected district attorney and twice re- elected, holding the office until 1888.

"Robert McGough, son of Robert and Mary (Provines) McGough, was born in 1831, in Jefferson township, and received a good education. He partially learned the surveyor's profession, but devoted most of his life to farming. In 1860 he was married to Mary M. Lee, daughter of John Lee, of Jefferson township, who bore him the following children: John L., William W. (a carpenter of Steubenville, Ohio), Mary (wife of William Anderson, of Jefferson township) and Samuel B. (deceased in youth). After his marriage Robert McGough lived for some time with his father in Jefferson township, and in 1861 came to Hanover township, locating on the farm where he died in October, 1880, and was buried in Burgettstown. He was an excellent judge of cattle, and devoted considerable attention to that department of agriculture. In politics he affiliated with the Democratic party and held various offices in the township. After his death Mrs. McGough resided for seven years on the old home farm, then removed to Steubenville, Ohio, where she is living.

"John L. McGough was born December 25, 1860, in Jefferson township, having been but an infant when his parents removed to Hanover township. He was reared to manhood on the farm which is his present home, receiving a common-school education. On September 25,1884, he was married to Belle Stephenson, who was born May 14, 1860, a daughter of David and Rachel (Noah) Stephenson, of Jefferson township. To this union two children were born: Vance L. and Elsie D. Mr. and Mrs. McGough have always resided on the home place, following farming and stockraising. The spirit of progression, so characteristic a trait in the lives of father and grandfather, is equally marked in the acts of John L. McGough. Politically he is a Democrat, and in religion both he and his wife are members of the M. E. Church."

"JOHN L. McGOUGH, one of the representative and prosperous young farmers of Hanover township, is a descendant of a well-known pioneer family. His grandfather, named Robert McGough, was born in Ireland, and when a young man came to America, first locating in Jefferson township, Washington Co., Penn. He there married Mary Provines, a native of County Tyrone, Ireland, who came to America with her parents in early girlhood. To this union were born children as follows: William, went to Jefferson county, Ohio, where he died; John, of Columbiana county, Ohio; Mary Ann, widow of E. S. Campbell; Robert, of whom a sketch follows; Sarah (Mrs. Absalom McCullough) and Rebecca, widow of James Neil, Wellsville, Ohio, twins; Samuel of Wellsville, Ohio, and Andy (deceased). The only capital of Robert McGough was a good supply of energy and industry. Year after year saw his possessions increase, and at the time of his death he owned six farms, with which he gave all his children a good start in life. In politics he was a Democrat, and in religion he and his wife were members of the U. P. Church at Burgettstown. They were buried in the Burgettstown U. P. cemetery.

Robert McGough, son of Robert and Mary (Provines) McGough, was born in 1831, in Jefferson township, and received a good education.

On September 25,1884, he was married to Belle Stephenson, who was born May 14, 1860, a daughter of David and Rachel (Noah) Stephenson, of Jefferson township.

The spirit of progression, so characteristic a trait in the lives of father and grandfather, is equally marked in the acts of John L. McGough. Politically he is a Democrat, and in religion both he and his wife are members of the M. E. Church.".

Here is a note from 1910 by Carol Eddleman from Pennsylvania Roots:

"JOHN L. McGOUGH, auditor of over Township, Washington County, is a prominent farmer and stock raiser, operating 227 acres, in which he has a one-third interest. He was born in Jefferson Township, December 25, 1860, and is a son of Robert and Mary Ann (Lee) McGough, and a grandson of Robert and Mary (Provines) McGough. 

The McGough family is of Irish ancestry and the grandparents were early settlers in Washington County. The father of John L. McGough had educational advan­tages afforded hiin and he partly prepared for the pro­fession of civil engineer, but later became more interested in farming, coming from Jefferson Township and settling on the present farm in 1861, on which he continued until his death in October, 1880. He had many fine herds of cattle of his own raising. He married Mary M. Lee, who was a daughter of John and Jane Ann Lee. She remained a widow for some years after his death, and then married J. C. Riddle and now resides at Steu­benville, Ohio. The children born to Robert and Mary Ann McGough were John L., of Hanover Township.; Will­iam W., a carpenter at Steubenville, Ohio; Mary, wife of William Anderson, of Jefferson Township; and Samuel B., who died in youth. Robert McGough was a Demo­crat in polities. He attended the Presbyterian Church. 

John L. McGough was but one year old when he was brought to Hanover Township, and his life has been pleasantly and usefully passed here. He attended the public schools through boyhood and when twenty years of age, having lost his father, the responsibilities of life first touched him, and being the eldest of the children the management of the farm fell to him. It has never been divided, there being three heirs, and he rents all the land and successfully cultivates it. He devotes at­tention to stock raising and has something of a reputation for fine cattle. 

On September 25, 1884, Mr. McGough was married to Miss Belle Stephenson, one of the following family of children born to David and Rachel (Noah) Stephenson, farmers of Jefferson Township: John R.; Belle, who be­came the wife of Mr. McGough; Nannie, who married James Jackson, of Hanover Township; Nettie, who married C. E. Fulton of Calgary, Canada; Mollie, who married Harvey Linn, deceasead; and Dora, who married William Criss, deceased. Mr. and Mrs. McGough have two children, a son and daughter: Vance L., who married Ethel Fulton and lives in Ohio; and Elsie D., who remains with her parents. Mr. McGough and family are members of the Methodist Protestant Church. In poli­tics he is a Democrat.

Brittan is listed as Little Berry Brittain, age 1, in the 1850 census of My Subdivision, Smith county, Texas, living with his father Joel Brittain, a farmer, age 27, born in Tennessee (M-432, roll 915, page 60, line 3). I sometimes use the spelling Brittain below, although the spelling in the 1880 census is Brittan (or possibly Brittin). The wife is Lana Ann McGough, daughter of Thomas Carson McGough. Although he was the father-in-law of L. B. Brittain, the head of the household, the census describes no relationship. Four Brittain children are listed in the household, all born in Texas to a father born in Texas and a mother born in Georgia: M. C. Brittain (son), age 16; V. J. Brittain (daughter), age 14; T. J. Brittain (son), age 4; and S. R. Brittain (daughter), age 2. The older two of these children may have been Little Berry Brittain's by a previous marriage. Lana Ann McGough, age 14 (female), born in Georgia, is listed with her father in the 1860 census of Newburgh, Parker county, Texas. Lana Ann McGough was the sixth child and second daughter of Thomas Carson McGough and Lana Kitchens. She was born on January 19, 1846, in Twiggs county, Georgia. Rowe, page 218. Lana's 2nd of 4 husbands was Berry Brittain whom she married in 1875. Rowe, pages 200 and 218–9. Here is part of an email I received from Janice Timmons on January 4, 2009:

"I am a great grand daughter of Lana Ann McGough (great-great grand daughter of Robert McGough). Lana Ann McGough and her second husband, Little Berry Brittian, is my lineage. Lana Ann and Little Berry's baby daughter, Molly Dora Brittian, was my mother's mother. Molly Dora Brittian married Virgil Artemis Drake. (Called Ralph Virgie Drake at Rowe, page 200.) Their children were Earl Vernon Drake, Ina Drake, Andrew Jackson Drake, Little Berry Drake, Violet Joyce Drake, Leroy Drake and Benjamin Kenneth Drake. A younger brother died at about age 2 the same year Ina died. My mother (Joyce) and her brother Ben are the only two still living. My name is Janice Earleene Lucas Timmons. My middle name comes from Uncle Earl."]

My grandmother, Catherine Fitzpatrick McGough, was a sponsor of this John McGough at his baptism. John McGough married Murtee Morehouse on October 6, 1889.]

Mary Ann McGough, age 12, at home, born in Wisconsin. [Married George Bradford (b. 1873). Emails of June 11 and 13, from Lucus Swanholm, tell this story of how the son of George and Mary Ann McGough Bradford, James Cliford Bradford, became James Clifford Boustead:

"George and Mary Ann had a child, Don, in 1906. In 1908 my grandfather, James Clifford, was born. Mary Ann died when James C. was between one and two years old. After Mary Ann died, George Bradford became involved with a Fannie Loomis. ... James C. was placed for adoption prior to George and Fannies relationship ...

"I had assumed that George and Mary Ann were married in Eau Claire, and I expect it was between the years of 1900 and 1905. However, the rolls you listed have James C. as being born in Minneapolis. I don't know if this is where he was born, or adopted. It certainly is possible that they were married and resided in Minneapolis. I do know that Mary is buried in Eau Claire. I have been unable to find anything on George so far,

""My grandfather was adopted by James T. Boustead and Mary Elizabeth who resided in Minneapolis, MN."

James C. (Clement) Boustead was listed as 11 years and 11 months old on January 1, 1920, in the 1920 census of Minneapolis, Hennepin county, Minnesota (roll 836, page 195b) as the son, born in Minnesota, of James T. Boustead, age 60, born in England, president of an electrical company,* and his wife, Mary E. Boustead, age 46, born in Michigan. In the 1910 census of Minneapolis (roll 704, page 144b), James E. (?) Boustead, age 51, who emigrated from England in 1881 and was a naturalized citizen, president of an electric machinery company,* and his wife, Mary E. Boustead, age 37, who had been married 4 years, are listed with no child. This supports the statement that the James C. Boustead, who was almost 12 in 1920, had been adopted.

His father's obituary in 1895 says Arthur was a lawyer.]

[A History of Milwaukee by Bayrd Still (Madison State Historical Society of Wisconsin, 1846), pages 327 and 429, describes Peter McGeoch's (and Nelson Van Kirk's*) speculative activities in attempting to corner the wheat market in Milwaukee in 1875–1878. At page 334. the book mentions Peter McGeoch's meat packing company. At page 368, the book mention that the Milwaukee Street Railway Company, which operated cars pulled by horses and mules over 14 1/2 miles of track, was sold to a group controlled by Peter McGeoch in 1881. He is the Peter McGeogh described in the press accounts in the Los Angeles Times of June 19, 1883, quoted by Sheryl Bansfield on her web page McGeough In The News:

"THE MILWAUKEE MILKMAN

"Failure of a Heavy Lard House in Chicago.

"CHICAGO, June 16 - A season of extraordinary excitement was prevailing on 'Change, immediately after the opening this morning, by the rumor freely circulated that the firm of McGeogh, Evorham & Co., who have for a long time been looked upon as the heaviest dealers in lard and other provisions on the Chicago Board, had failed. This was verified in a measure soon afterward by a member of the firm circulating about on the floor of the Exchange and notifying all with whom they were interested in provision deals to close them. Something in the nature of a panic appeared to seize the provision corner, and for a time the interest in other trading was lost. An effort to ascertain the extent to which McGeogh had been operating failed both upon application to the firm and members of the Board of Trade.

"LATER. - The liabilities of McGeogh, Everham & Co., whose failure was rumored this morning, will be very heavy. A falling market brought in its train plenty of rumors of other impending failures, but up to 11:30 there was nothing to report. Members of the broken firm have declared to a representative of the Associated Press that they would make no statement of any kind before tomorrow. Peter McGeogh, the head of the firm, is a resident of Milwaukee and is familiarly styled "The Milwaukee Milkman". He is reported to have been the leader in a number of daring bull movements on both the Milwaukee and Chicago markets and failed here two years ago."

Here is another article quoted by Sheryl Bansfield, this one from the Butte, Montana, Daily Miner of August 1, 1883:

"THE GREAT LARD FIRM.

"McGeogh, the head of the great lard firm of Chicago, is likely to get on his feet again. It appears that the total gross indebtedness of the firm amounts to $6,000,000. Of this amount, there were due the banks, $4,050,000. They held collateral to the extent of $3,900,000. There was also due to customers and the trade in Chicago over $1,950,000, and there had been deposited as security about $700,000, leaving the entire amount to the creditors and unsecured parties $1,400,000. There was realized from the assets and accounts about $250,000, and Mr. McGeogh and his friends in Milwaukee furnished $450,000, making the necessary $700,000 with which to liquidate the indebtedness of $1,400,000. This enabled the firm to offer a compromise of fifty cents on the dollar, which the creditors almost without an exception accepted. Through the assistance of his friends, who repose implicit confidence in his ability to recover from his present embarrassment, he is enabled again to take the slippery trail on which he so recently experienced such a serious fall."

The McGeoch Building at 322 East Michigan Street, Milwaukee, was built by Peter McGeoch in 1895.

The story ends on this sad note of November 29, 1895, from the Daily Republican of Decatur, Illinois:

"Peter McGeogh, the old time Chicago speculator and board of trade man and millionaire, shot and killed himself at his country residence near Milwaukee Wednesday morning." The Chicago Tribune of November 28, 1895, carried an extensive report of the death of Peter McGeoch, and said that he "committed suicide because he could not bear the notoriety which was given him by the suit for divorce about to be commenced by his wife." His second wife, Mrs. Mary Trowbridge Libbey, whom he had married in 1888 after the death (on December 3, 1885) of Catharine Harvey McGeoch, his first wife, had left the home "some weeks ago" and her intention to seek a divorce was made public the day before the suicide.

*P. McGeoch of Vankirk and McGeoch is listed in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin 1859 City Directory (pae 150) with a home at 6th and Galena. Van Kirk and McGeoch operated a slaughter house in Milwaukee in the 1870s. See the biography of Fred Wetenkamp, who worked there in the early 1870s.

+Elijah Harvey was a son of Enoch Harvey. The Harvey family is listed in the 1850 census of the town of Lake Hills, Jefferson county, Wisconsin (61A page 0059b) (roll 1000, page 59): Enoch B. Harvey, age 39, born in Canada (1860 census of this same place says he was born in Vermont (roll 1413, page 371); his wife, Mary Harvey, age 38, born in Vermont; Mary J. Harvey, age 17, born in Vermont; Catharine Harvey, age 14, born in Vermont; Eliza (should be Elijah; see 1860 census) S. Harvey, age 8, born in Vermont; George Harvey, age 12, born in Vermont; Riley Harvey, age 6. born in Wisconsin; Isabella Harvey, age 2, born in Wisconsin.]

Articles on McGeoch and his "daring speculations" in wheat and disastrous attempt to corner the lard market in the Chicago Tribune, New York Times, and Los Angeles Times in the 1880s and 1890s number well over one hundred. The articles are available on the Internet on ProQuest Historical Newspapers. Most of the articles spell his name McGeoch (or M'Geoch), but several spell it McGeogh (or M'Geogh).

Peter McGeoch's father, William McGeoch, age 63, a wheat buyer, born in Scotland, is listed with his wife Matilda and their family, in the 1860 census of Waterloo township, Jefferson township, Wisconsin (roll 1413, page 568).
