Timothy Crowley - Deaths

I'm still trying to locate more information on my Timothy Crowley, b c 1822, Ireland, that married a Mary abt the same time, also Ireland. With such common names, it's not been easy. I know they were in Manchester, NH abt 1851, where son Dennis was born, then Worcester for the 1860 census. They had 4 known children, Dennis, Mary (born Springfield, according to Worcester records), Johanna (not found a birth for yet), and Catherine (born Worcester). I estimate Timothy died 1860-1870, as I could not place him on any census after 1860, though found a widowed Mary with a Kate, that fits, in Worcester in 1880.

Here are some death records from that period.

Aug 1 1862 Fitchburg - Timothy Crowley, male, married, 40, Killed by jumping from a RR car, Sterling res Fitchburg, laborer, Ireland, Jeremiah Crowley, Mary Crowley, Ireland, Ireland

Jan 14 1879 Worcester - Timothy Crowley, male, __, 60, pneumonia, __, laborer, __, __, __, Ireland

it would be nice if it was the first, seeing as how the parents are listed, but i cannot be sure of either, i'm afraid. this is terribly frustrating

I don't update my age-old website anymore ( ), so I decided to start this new blog.

Here I will share records that I find, like Obits, books I discover, photos i take, random blurbs about what's on my mind, etc. It will likely be quite random, but maybe the records I post may be helpful to someone who happens by. :)

I compiled so many records, that it will take quite some time to post them all. Be sure to check back

.Site description (as submitted to Cindy's List):

Genealogy blog that shares obituaries, vitals, and other records found in the process of research, along with personal research tidbits and blogging. Most obits and records will be from eastern Massachusetts, but NH, Maine, TN, KS, NE, England & others may also appear. The surnames BLAISDELL & TREADWELL will frequently appear in the records added, along with many Nahant (MA) based families. Information will be eclectic.
