John Barry # 120449501
Just wanted to let you know that I found marriage and death records that confirm one of your existing memorials is the correct John Barry, first husband of Ellen Gallagher. So, I'm going to delete the memorial I created as a placeholder and submit edits to connect the family to your John Barry, memorial # 120449501. Thanks again for your help in getting this large family linked together! Tim

Edward Wiggin, Find A Grave Memorial# 55596544
There was a 4th child, Ellen B. Wiggin, born Aug 1834. She appears with her parents and brothers in the 1850 census. She appears with her parents in the 1860 census. She married Alanson H. Phelps, of NY, in 1864, died in California 13 Jun 1929. I have no information on a burial.

McAllister's in Bangor Cem.
Thanks for taking a look for me, even though you didn't find anything; the effort was still there. But thanks for taking the picture you did take for me. I am reasonably sure that Daniel & Hiram are related (both those names show up in the census as brothers, then again as moving to Bangor), but I was hoping for a headstone to confirm it.

Again, many thanks!

RE: Barry / Watson / Gallagher
That's very helpful, thanks so much! Great photos too. There were 17 children between the two of them and their first marriages, so I'll most likely be bugging you some more to link the family memorials that you already added. I'm on the West coast, so I couldn't do this without all of these memorials you have added. Thanks -Tim

P.S. Ellen Gallagher's first husband was John Barry (I believe 1866-1901), but there are multiple possibilities in Mt. Pleasant Cemetery, so I'm trying to find some records to identify the correct John Barry. It seems his middle initial was I. or J.

RE: Barry / Watson / Gallagher
Hi again! There are a couple of errors we should try to correct, so I apologize for the long note. I can't find the memorial for Ellen Gallagher Barry, it may have been deleted? This is a complicated family, so I'll try to explain ... Ellen Gallagher (1874-1942) was married to John Barry (approx. 1870-1903); they had 3 children. When John Barry died, Ellen Gallagher married John Watson (1863- ?), and they had 8 more children. These Barry & Watson children are my cousins through Ellen Gallagher.

John Watson had been previously married to Ellen Cavanaugh (1963-1903), and they had 6 children.

So, widower John Watson (6 children) married widow Ellen Gallagher-Barry (3 children) and they had 8 more children. Some of the Watson children have been linked to Ellen McLean, who is not their mother.

On the Barry side of the family, there are at least three John Barry's in Mt. Pleasant who could be Ellen Gallagher's first husband; I don't know which one is correct. The John Barry who married Ellen McLean is a different person. The correct John Barry died before 1905.

The Ellen and John Watson you found in Newport can't be the right people because John was still alive in the 1940 census, and Ellen died in 1942, so the dates don't match. It would be great if we can get the Ellen Gallagher-Barry memorial (Mt. Pleasant) back into Find-a-Grave and re-link her children.

Sorry about the work tied to this! It's complicated but interesting due to the large blended family. Thanks! Tim

RE: Jamieson/McCann
These are the people I was looking for, thanks! I have a baptism record for Annie from New Brunswick church records, and found a marriage record for Annie & John on-line, so I will send you some details for her memorial via the edits function. Thanks for your travels and time to collect these photos & records. Tim
