Seeking information on the death of Mariah (or Maria) MCDERMOTT (nee ASH), wife of Patrick MCDERMOTT,
She was born about 1813 and died sometime after 1880. The last record I have found for Mariah is the 1880 Census for Rio, Knox County, Illinois.
Her husband Patrick MCDERMOTT died and was buried in Rio, Knox County, Illinois, USA in 1886. Patrick purchased 4 cemetery lots, however no date was recorded. It is possible that she could be buried at the site where Patrick is buried. She is not mentioned in the obituary or in the probate documents filed at the time of Patrick's death.
I suspect she may have died before her husband possibily in Knox Couty, Illinois. I suspect she died there as well. I would love any information that would point me in the right direction for a death date and place for Mariah.
I am looking for the parents of John McDermott born 1849 in Michigan, United States. He married Cordelia Keene. Through census records I have traced them to Texas, Iowa, Missouri and Colorado where the family was in San Miguel and Pueblo Colorado. His parents were immigrants and are from Ireland or Scotland (there is disagreement on the census records which it is).
