Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: May, 1832, Ireland
Death: Jan. 26, 1902
Smartsville
Yuba County
California, USA

Wife of Ireland emigrant and pioneer, Daniel C. McGanney. Mother of Edward J., Thomas Francis, James Francis, Anne (Annie), Daniel Jr., Frank Joseph, Mary and John, all born in Sucker Flat or Smartsville, Yuba, CA. Native of Tyrone, Ireland. The 1900 Census records that she was born in May 1832 in Ireland, immigrated in 1851, and she bore 8 children, 6 of whom were living in 1900. One who died young was Thomas Francis. The other seems to be John who is buried in St. Joseph's Catholic Cemetery in Marysville where brother Thomas Francis is also buried. Her husband was a hydraulic placer miner until the laws were changed to outlaw that method of gold mining. Nearby gold mining community Long Bar was buried by hydraulic mining silt flows downstream. He also bought the large Bonanza Ranch and hired Abial Ransom as the ranch foreman, whose step-daughter Georgie Gray married Frank Joseph. At one time, her husband was considered one of the richest men in California, but due to investment losses, he died insolvent. In the 1880 Census, they were the only McGanney family in the U.S. having immigrated from Ireland in 1851 and settling in 1856 in Sucker Flat, just North of Smartsville, Yuba, California.
