Hi

Can anyone please help with a birth for Margaret Gargan Father John Gargan. Margaret was born approx 1859 - she married Edward Moore - 1845. I cannot find a birth but I think she was born in Birmingham, Warwickshire.

I am trying to find the whereabouts of the Moore family. The last address I have for them is Coleman Street, Aston Birmingham.

Edward Moore b1859 Margaret Moore b 1859ish William Henry Moore b 1880 and Sarah Ann Moore b 1888

I have Edwardm Margaret and William in 1881 and william and Sarah in 1901 with William's wife Laura (nee Kimberley). I know that Margaret died in 1894 and Edward in 1905. So what happened to them in 1889.

Can anyone help please

Regards

Julie :)

Hi Julie,

Welcome to FHUK.

Where were they born?
Hi

They were all born in Birmingham. It is just weird why they are all missing from the 1891 census. I would just like to fill in the gap. I went to Birmingham
the other day and searched the archives there but I have still drawn a blank.

I did however, find a coroners report for my Gt Grandad Edward Moore in 1905.
:)

Hi Julie,

I did find out where they were born, but still couldnt find them in 1891.
They could be mistransribed under another name, What was Margarets maiden name?:)

Margaret was called Gargan but it could have been spelt different on some sites. Margaret died in 1894 her sister Frances Gargan was present.

Thank you for your help

Hi Julie

This does look like these people are the ones that I am looking for. Frances Gargan (Fanny) was present at Margarets death in 1894.

The children mentioned on the 1891 census do not appear to be Edward & Margarets. I will have to have a good look around now to find them. I wonder who they were living with.

I went to Birmingham last Friday and managed to get a coroners report for Edward. He was only 48 and died from a stroke. His Daughter my Gran also died from the same thing age 58.

Sorry I am wittering.

Thank you very much for your help. You have resolved a mystery that I have been puzzling with for the past three years.

Best Wishes

Julie

Best Wishes

Hello again.

I am still trying to trace the Gargans but without much success. I do know that my Gt Grandmothers father was called John Gargan. He is named on her wedding certificate in 1877 but I cannot find him on any census. The name Gargan has been miss Spelt so many times. I cannot keep a track of it but I think Gargan is the correct way because it is on the wedding cert. I can't find Frances (Fanny) Gargan on a census except for 1891 where she is a lodger in the same house as my Gt Grandparents Edward Moore and Margaret Moore (nee Gargan). Does anyone have any ideas please??

Thanks

Julie

In 1881 there is a Fanny Duguran servant born abt 1859 Birmingham, perhaps her name has been misheard by the enumerator or she may not be the one you are looking for.

Hello again.

I have found a death for a Fanny Gargan in 1897. This would make her born around 1865. I think she was my Gt Grandma's Sister. I am having trouble finding her birth. As far as I know it should be in Warwickshire. Can anyone help please.

Thanks

Hi

Sorry that I did not reply last night. I had to log off - my eyes were sore. I am the computer all day at work and I had been on a little too long.

I am at work now so I am unable to look up John's occupation - I will however take a look at it tonight and will let you know.

Many thanks

Julie
