  • Burial Wilmington, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, USA
  • Plot Maple Ave, Section C
  • Memorial ID 13032979

Daughter of Daniel and Catherine (Larkin) McGonigle.

Wife, of 53 years, to William A. Ayer. They wed on Nov. 1, 1905 in Boston, MA.

Mother of James A., Violet F., Catherine E., Ernest H. and, my grandfather, Alfred K.

On her and Williams marriage register and birth register for James she is listed as "Beatrice F." At some point she changed her name to Bridget.

Trying to find her birth year has been tough. The 1900 census has she was 19 [b. Nov 1881]. On the marriage record in 1905 it states she was 19, [b. 1886]. 3 other census put her birth year at 1880 and death record at 1879! Her headstone has 1888. At least a couple have November.
