    Default Anna Hannore Dean

    Hello! I am looking for help with my ancestor Anna Hannore Dean. I know nothing about any siblings, her parents or where in County Mayo she was born. Her vitals are as follows:
    DOB: October 31, 1857 County Mayo
    DOD: July 31, 1956 Omaha, Nebraska
    She was married first to a Patrick Grady and then to a John O'Donnell.

    Thank you!
    Dave

    Where did she marry her husbands? Do you have, or can you obtain, her marriage certificates which would hopefully give a father's name?
    When do you first find her in the US?
    And where have you got her DOB and County Mayo from?
    I have no knowledge of the information given on US death certificates, but do you have a copy of Anna's and if so, is there any useful information regarding her parents?
    Have you searched local newspapers for an obituary for her?

    Have you checked the 'stickies' at the top of the general Irish family history forum which give you various sites to search for baptism/marriage/burial records/registers?

    Here is the source. It lists the parents names but there is great debate within the family as to the veracity. We believe that she married both husbands in Pennsylvania. First husband was my relative, he was a coal miner. The second husband was a good friend to the first husband.

    Try Familysearch.org for US records.
    There's a marriage record for a Mrs Anne/Annie Grady born July 1859 in Ireland to John O'Donnell in Schuylkill, PA.

    Also see if a local library in Omaha has newspapers which might have an obituary. You have a date of death so it shouldn't take them long to do a look-up.

    Check out the US census on Ancestry to confirm the family members as listed on the findagrave site. You may also find mire details about Anna and her husbands.
