Below are my Irish in Chicago. Obviously if you believe you have any
knowledge of these people I'd appreciate hearing from you. To make this thing
a little more tolerable I've devised and stolen a shorthand. Here's an
explanation of the paragraph below that starts "Michael". Michael Martin was
born about 1842 in Pennsylvania. He died in 1915 in Chicago. He married
Bridget Burke who was born about 1842 in Ireland and died in 1926 in Chicago.
Her migration and naturalization are unknown. They were married before 1868
and they had seven boys and two girls.

Let me also confirm some standard abbreviations. b:=born, d:=died,
m:=married, abt.=about, est.=estimated, bef.=before, unk.=unknown,
M=migration, N=naturalization, IE=Ireland, PA=Pennsylvania, NY=New York,
IL=Illinois, IA=Iowa, Chgo=Chicago, CH=Chicago Heights.

Here goes...

Michael Martin / b:abt.1842,PA / d:1915,Chgo / Bridget Burke / b:abt.1842, IE
/ M: unk / N: unk / m: bef. 1868, unk/7/2

Francis (Frank) Martin /b:1870,PA / d:1897,Chgo / Mary Lynch / b:1870,IA /
d:1935,CH / m:1895,Chgo /1/0

unk / d:1911,CH / m:bef 1870, unk / 1/1

NOTE: I suspect a Canadian connection for the Lynches that includes
additional children but I have no proof.

Francis (Frank) Martin / b:1897,Chgo / d: 1939, CH / Catherine Peters /
b:1902, Milwaukee / d:1988, Olympia Fields / m:1934, CH / 2 / 0

NOTE: Catherine was previously married to a (unk) McGinley. They had two
children. Charles b:1887 and Mary Regina b:1889. Mary Regina married a
Cotharin and had at least one child, John, but that's about all I know about
the McGinleys except that Mary died in Chgo in 10-1963.
