Generation No. 2


2.  JULIA2 MCGRATH (NICHOLAS1) was born January 1858 in PA, and died October 19, 1931 in Philadelphia, PA, per Mary Brennan Reid's paper of 3/1990.  She married THOMAS P. BRENNAN, son of MICHAEL BRENNAN and MARY KELLY.  He was born February 05, 1855 in South Ward, Pottsville, PA, Schuykill Co., per Mary Brennan Reid's paper of 3/1990, and died February 1923 in Philadelphia, PA, per Mary Brennan Reid's paper of 3/1990.

Notes for JULIA MCGRATH:
Joan:  Uncle Nick was not talking to Julia when Mary died (they'd had a feud or something).  She went to Church every morning, 7 o'clock Mass.  Uncle Nick went there to tell her that his sister Mary, her daughter, had died.  Julia said, "I know.  I saw her face above the altar."

Notes for THOMAS P. BRENNAN:
DOB from 1900 Census.  Place is from Mary Brennan Reid, who cites the 1900 Census for Philadelphia as indicating Thomas was born in Pottsville, if I understand her notes clearly.  However, her source for that Census must be different than mine, as mine did not list town of birth.  It may have been a census of the Pottsville census district.

However, Mary's paper gives 6/29/53 as Thomas' birth.  and she lists 2/5/1855 as Francis' DOB, who died at birth.  I believe she reversed Thomas' and Francis' DOBs, as Thomas' DOB in the 1900 Census is given as2/1855.

Per 1900 Census, and Mary Brennan Reid's paper of 3/1990, Thomas Brennanlived at 1948 Bonitz/ Bonetz Street in Philadelphia.

They didn't like him.

   iii.    ALICE BRENNAN, b. February 1887; m. SMITH?.

4.    iv.    WILLIAM BRENNAN, b. June 1889.

Per Mary Brennan Reid's paper of 3/1990:  no Nicholas listed, but Michael with birth same month/year.  Twins?  They ran in this family, at least by next generation. Same person?
