Looking for death information on Mary Ann Hinchie/McGowan Duke, born about 1859 in Maries County, MO. Daughter of Mary Jane Elrod and Uriah Hinchie. Mary Ann Hinchie/McGowan married William Norris Duke in Maries County on March 18, 1881. I believe she died about March 1888 in Maries County. I believe she had 2 daughters (possibly step daughters): #1- Rosa B. Duke, born 1877 in Houston, Texas County, MO. Rosa married Shirley Daugherty in Christian County, MO in 1896. #2- Dora, born about 1880 in Maries County. Any info on the people listed above would be greatly appreciated.
Looking for any information on a Capt. Michael F. McGowan who lived in Manhattan, New York in the 1890's. Michael was born in Ireland in about 1825. He was a retired mariner. There is some evidence that he may have worked on the shipping trade to south america in the 1860's. He was married with children and had a son called John McGowan who was born possibly in New York about 1850. Any help would be much appreciated.
