McGoughs, McGeoughs, and McGues in the 1900
Census of the United States

 

"The 1900 census is the only available federal census that provides the month and year of birth of the person enumerated. The other US censuses include only the age in years. The 1900 census is also the only census to record the number of years couples were married, the number of children born to the mother, and how many were living at the time of the census. This census was the first to indicate how long an immigrant had been in the country, whether a home or farm was owned or rented, and whether the owned property was free of a mortgage." (From an article on Ancestry.com, published on Cyndi's List.)

This page is designed to be used with my other pages covering McGoughs in the US censuses for the years 1790 through 1880, and I intend to add cross references to and from my other pages as time allows.

Entries from the 1900 census for Iowa, New York, and Pennsylvania are on separate sub-pages. Another page provides supplemental information for Rhode Island.

[Here is part of a message of December 30, 2006, from Timothy McGough, that is a follow-up to earlier correspondence:

"My name is Timothy Roy McGough and I live in White Bear Lake, MN 55110. I am a 27 year veteran of the Hennepin county Sheriff's office in Minneapolis. My brother, Thomas Charles McGough lives in Cushing, Wisconsin, and is a manager of a prefab home plant for Hans Hagen Homes.

[Here is an earlier message from Timothy McGough of January 27, 2004:

"My name is Timothy Roy McGough and I come from a family in Minnesota that pronounces the name like mcgue. As far as I know I am not related to the McGough Construction company. They pronounce the name mcgoff. My great grandfather was Thomas McGough. As far as I know he left his family to look for a job and never came back. I was told he ended up in Georgia.

"My grandfather Charles Patrick McGough* was a carpenter and was from Minnesota. He did move away for awhile as he traveled for work. He lived in South Dakota and Ismay, Montana, where my Dad was born. My dad's siblings were Cora, Mary, Helen, Ceil, Charlotte, John, and Lois. Everyone has passed away except Helen, Charlotte, and Lois. (Lois is living in Bloomington, Minn.) The only McGough males left to carry on the name were John's son Michael who lives in California , my brother Thomas Charles McGough, and he has no children, and myself and my two son's Kevin Charles and Michael Timothy. My two sisters Janis and Karen are married. We do have some relatives, brothers and sisters of my grandfather and they live in Stillwater, Minnesota.

""Just to let you know I have been called MaGoo since I was a young child."

*The 1930 census of Minneapolis lists Charles P. McGough, age 49, married at age 24, born in Minnesota to parents born in Northern Ireland, a carpenter in the housing industry; his wife Pauline, age 40, married at age 16, born in South Dakota to parents born in Norway, and six children, ranging in age from 18 to an infant. The children include a son Charles, age 13, born in Montana (roll 1093. page 13A, line 1). The 1920 census of Groton, Brown county, South Dakota, lists the family on Main Street, with their son (and 5th child) shown as 2 years, 11 months, old, born in Montana. Charles P. McGough, the father, is listed as age 39, a house carpenter (T-625, roll 1715, page 9B, line 80). (In 1920, the family is incorrectly indexed by Ancestry.com as McGaugh.) In the 1910 census of Riverside, Brown county, South Dakota, Pauline McGough, age 20, married is listed separately from her husband, a "servant" in the home of Ole and Louise Belam (her parents), both of whom were also born in Norway. Living on the Belam farm with Pauline were her two daughters, Cora M. McGough, age 3, and Charlotte E. McGough, 1 year, 2 months; both of whom were born in South Dakota. (T-624, roll 1477; page 9A, line 13). Pauline McGough was probably the Pauline Belden who was listed as the 10 year old daughter, born in South Dakota in October, 1889, of Ole (a farmer) and Louise Belden, both born in Norway, in the 1900 census of Riverside, Brown county, South Dakota (T-623, roll 1547, page 1B, line 65).

[Here is a follow up from Timothy McGough on December 31, 2006:

"My dad is Charles Patrick McGough born in 1917. He married my mother Doris E. Quist. She was born in 1921. I had a brother Darryl Charles who was born in 1942 and died in 1956. My oldest sister Janis E. was born in 1944 and is married and living in Brainerd Minn. to Lee Chrisinger. My sister Karen E. was born in 1946 and lives in Wyoming, Minn with her husband William Ruben.

"I am the only one who has sons who will carry on the McGough name. Michael Timothy McGough, born July 25, 1980. He is in the airforce Reserve and is a pilot with a Cargo company in Anoka, Minnesota. Kevin Charles was born on April 26, 1986, and is also in the Air force reserves and works for Best Buy. I also have a daughter Kelly Ann McGough, born December 29, 1982, who lives in St.Paul, Minn. Below is the rest of the info I received from my sister Janis and some info sent from you to her."

[Attached was a message that Janis Chrisinger had sent me on February 6, 2004:

"I'm Janis (McGough) Chrisinger. I believe you have found our family of origin. My great-grandmother was Delia O'Halloran (or O'Halleran or O'Halliran); there are many spellings of this name and I'm not sure which was her spelling. From this union of Thomas McGough and Delia O'Halloran were born six children, one of whom was my grandfather, Charles Patrick, as mentioned by my brother, Tim. Charles married Pauline _Schoule or Shoule__from Groton, South Dakota. [Probably Pauline Belden or Belam; see above.]

"Just a little trivia, I live in Brainerd, Minnesota, and my grandfather, Charles who worked in construction, helped to build the bridge in Brainerd that spans the Mississippi River."

(1900) James Bernard McGough, born in county Monaghan, Ireland, in 1863, married Catherine Beagan in Aghabog, county Monaghan, Ireland, on January 8, 1885, and died in 1903, in Benson, Swift county, Minnesota. The family moved from Brookly to Benson, Minnesota, sometime after June of 1900. James and his family are listed in this 1900 census in New York, Brooklyn, 24th Ward, above. Below is the listing of his widow, Catherine, from the 1910 census of Benson. [Much of the other information is from a posting under Del L. Johnson Genealogy on OneWorldTree on Ancestry.com. James McGogh is listed above in this census in Brooklyn Borough, 24th Ward, Kings county, New York.]

Paul J. McGough, in a message of February 20, 2000, to Al Beagan's "Genealogy Notes," says:

"My great grandmother Catherine McGough was actually Sarah Catherine Beagan, but used Catherine (or Kate in the Beagan family) as her common name. I was surprised to see she had a sister called Sarah Beagan. I wonder what her middle name was. ...

"Catherine Beagan and James Bernard McGough (who assumed his middle name after their marriage) were married on Jan. 8, 1885 at the Aghalog [I assume this is Aghabog] Catholic Church, Clogher Diocese in County Monaghan, Ireland. They came over separately to Brooklyn. James first to establish a residence on April 17, 1887 and then Catherine and their young daughter Mary Ellen boarded the Circassia, an Anchor line steamship at Londonderry Ireland. They traveled 3rd class passage to America, landing at the Port of Castle Garden New York on June 1st, 1887."

See my page: McGoughs, McGeoughs and McGeoghs in the Baronies of Dartree and Monaghan—Civil Parishes of Aghabog and Killeevan—under Killyfuddy. The townland of Killyfuddy is in the civil parish of Killeevan on the western boundary of the civil parish of Aghabog, near Rooskey Lough.

Paul J. McGough says in his email to Al Beagan:

"Catherine's brother Thomas Beagan came to America around 1870. He found work on the railroads which he followed westward to Minnesota. In 1876, he found himself working out of Joliet Illinois where I have been told he fell in love with the mayor's daughter, Johanna Reardon (I have not researched the Reardon family line yet to see if it is true). They were married on Dec. 13, 1876.They moved west to Minnesota in early 1877. He went to work for James J. Hill's St. Paul & Pacific Railroad, and arrived in Benson Minnesota in 1878. At that time the tracks ended in Benson Minnesota. He help built the stone abutment for the railroad bridge across the Chippewa River at Benson. While working in Benson, he became aware of the Irish settlement Archbishop John Ireland was setting up in neighboring DeGraff. They decided to take up a homestead and settle near DeGraff. Thomas Beagan farmed the land they homesteaded but he also continued his craft as a stonemason by building the dam at Swift Falls Minn. and helping build the stone railroad depot in Benson."

"Joseph Henry McGoff, mechanical superintendent of the eastern lines of the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company, whose office is in Topeka, was born at Springfield, Mass., Jan. 25, 1863. His parents are Henry and Ellen C. (Hines) McGoff, the former a retired resident of Clearwater, Neb., and a native of Glasgow, Scotland, while Mrs. McGoff was born in Worcester, Mass. Henry McGoff, the father, came to the United States when a mere lad, alone and empty handed, but perseverance and industry enabled him to become established as a coffee and spice merchant, which business he followed very successfully until his retirement.

"Joseph H. McGoff was reared in Springfield, Mass., until eighteen years of age and obtained his early education in the public schools of that city. When thirteen years of age he became an apprentice at the machinist's trade in the United States government armory at Springfield, Mass., and remained there five years, by which time he had sufficiently mastered the trade to take a position. He left Springfield, in 1881, and after traveling about for one year as a journeyman machinist he entered the employ of the Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis & Omaha Railway Company at Eau Claire, Wis., as a mechanic in the shops, and later became a foreman. He remained in that company's employ until 1888, but from that year until 1902 he was successively employed as a machinist, foreman, general foreman, master mechanic, and superintendent of shops for the Northern Pacific railway, located at Brainerd, Staples and St. Paul, Minn. Since 1902 he has been in the employ of the Santa Fe Company. Beginning in that year as master mechanic in the Santa Fe shops at Ft. Madison, Iowa, he held that position until 1908, when he was transferred to Topeka, where he was made mechanical superintendent of the eastern lines.

"Mr. McGoff was married Feb. 24, 1887, to Miss Thea Elise Maylum, of Eau Claire, Wis. She was born in Christiania, Norway, June 11, 1865, and came to the United States with an uncle when she was a girl. Mr. and Mrs. McGoff have three children—all daughters: Ellen Margrethe, born March 29, 1888; Louise Josephini, born April 23, 1890; and Thea Lillian, born Dec. 1, 1892. Politically Mr. McGoff is identified with the Republican party, and his church association is with the Episcopal church. He is a Knight Templar Mason and is a member of the Topeka and Commercial clubs."

[Here is part of an email of January 18, 2007, from Linda Debarea:

"I think John McGough and Birdie Cooper were married in 1900, shortly after the census was taken since their 1st child was born abt. 1901 in South Dakota.

"This is the story I was told by Birdie's niece, Claire Mayer—'Birdie lived awhile with Rose and James Mann (Rose was Birdie's sister). Living in the same area was an older Irishman named John McGough. He told dad (Claire's father Earnest; brother of Rose and Birdie) stories of lying out on the hills above a little creek named Hump Creek, named after the Lakota Chief Hump who traversed through there at the time of the Ghost dances, on their way to Montana. (Hump died at Cherry Creek, South Dakota on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in December 1908 at the age of 70. He is buried in the Episcopal Cemetery near there. Source—www.aktalakota.org.) Anyway, John had accumulated a few bucks, I have no idea how, trading cattle maybe, and then he married Birdie. They went to Canada near a little town about 30 miles west of Moosejaw, Saskatchewan and homesteaded there. They had two sons, Stanley and "Bud", whose real name I do not know.' ...

"Birdie's mother had 10 children with Jacob Cooper and when he died she was just not able to support them all. Some left home at a very young age and some were adopted out so I only have a photo of 5 of the 10. Birdie's mother married twice more after that and had 2 more children. (I've found one of the two of those.)

"I know that at one point, Birdie's sister Etta Belle Cooper and her husband John Wesley Jones were supposedly living in the same area as John and Birdie. According to Birdie's niece Claire, 'Etta and her husband Wesley went about 30 miles west of Moosejaw, Saskatchewan, Canada to homestead. They selected land beside a lake however, the land was not very arable; quite rocky and better suited to ranching than farming."

WANT CARNEGIE MEDAL FOR WIDOW OF FIRE HERO —

MOVEMENT FOR PENSION AND MEDAL FOR MRS. McGOUGH —

If Pension is Granted Will Be Second for San Antonio—McGough Lost Life in Robstown Fire —

San Antonio, Tex., May 14.—A movement has been set on foot to secure a pension and a Carnegie medal for the widow of Clarence McGough, who lost his life in the Robstown fire while trying to save others of the inmates. Professor Wesley Peacock has the matter in charge and is now gathering data to present to the Carnegie commission. McGough is survived by his widow and one daughter, Corrine, aged 4 years. At the time of his death, he was 31 (may read 34) years old and had resided in San Antonio twenty-eight years. The reports from Robstown are to the effect that McGough re-entered the building, from which he had come out safely, to save the life of a man who was trapped. He did not succeed and also lost his own life.

If McGough's widow is given a Carnegie medal it will be the second which has come to San Antonio. ... ]

When Uncle Bill got sick, his wife gave him a capsule the doctor had left, and as soon as he swallowed it, his stomach was on fire. He jumped out of the bed, ran to the chicken house and found a dozen eggs he had put under a hen the day before to hatch. He swallowed that dozen eggs and it eased his pain, and he again sent for the doctor. They found his wife had replaced the medicine that was in the capsule with lye. Equillah was nowhere to be found but returned the following day with her sister, a gun, and a black snake whip, intending for her sister to hold a gun on Uncle Billy while she whipped him. He took the gun from the sister and the whip from his wife without harm. Equillah moved to Parker Co, Texas William fied for divorce on 13 Sep 1899 asking (for) custody of their two children (Effie McGough and Henry Frederick McGough)."]

["FRANCIS A. McGOUGH—obituary

The Sprague Advocate, Nov 15, 1918

The entire Sprague community was shocked to hear last week of the death of Francis McGough. He passed away at the home of his parents at E. 801 Boone Ave. Spokane after a few days illness with pneumonia following an attack of influenza.

FRANCIS ALAYISIUS McGOUGH was the fourth son of Mr. and Mrs. P. E. McGOUGH, a well known pioneer family here. He was born at their farm home on Dec 29th 1892 and with the exception of a few months has spent his entire life in this community.

He attended the local public schools and since grown to manhood has engaged in wheat farming with his brothers who now operate the McGough farm. During the winter months for several years he has worked in the shoe department of Culbert-Grote-Rankin and in the Model Boot Shop in Spokane. He went to Camp Lewis with the October 1917 quota from Lincoln County but was honorably discharged in December owing to a lame ankle which resulted from a broken leg some years ago.

Frank was an exemplary young man, admired, respected and loved by all who knew him. His kindly quiet ways and gentle courtesy endeared him to every one with whom he came in contact. In his last moments he was soothed and comforted by ministrations of the Catholic church of which he was always a most sincere and devoted member.

He leaves to morn his loss his father and mother, sisters CARMEL and IRMA of Spokane, brother EPHRIAM, JOHN and LEO, who reside here and RAYMOND who is in training at Camp Lewis. A host of relatives and friends join with the family in their deep sorrow.

Funeral services were held Saturday morning Nov 1st from St. Alayisius church in Spokane, REV. FR. MACKIN officiating."]

"John William McGoff was born in Janesville, WI. He moved with his parents, John and Mary, to Delhi, IA when he was a young boy. When he was twelve they moved to Sprague where they resided until both parents died. John William married Hannah Collins and lived for 16 years on a farm in Martin County, MN. In the winter of 1912, Mrs. Peter E. McGoff and her two daughters visited their cousins at the farm for a couple of weeks.

"When Theresa McGoff (Ascheman) was ten or twelve [around 1912], her cousin John Clarke from Chicago visited them and was dearly loved by the family. Theresa said that he was very fond of corn and one time ate 17 ears of it! John Clarke told them that he met his wife at church. He saw her during mass and went right afterwards to the priest and asked for an introduction. The minute he saw her he decided he would make her his wife. They raised several children. Theresa never saw him after that visit. He was the one who told Theresa that Clarke, our Clarke, is spelled with an E. This is the Irish Catholic spelling.
