My ancestor, John Rowan was born June 24.1824 in Klven Cullen, County Mayo.
He married Bridget McMahon on November 17.1851 at St. Peter's Roman Catholic
Church in Westernport, Maryland.They had seven children: John (died
young),Bartholomew (died young) Patrick,Mary,John Thomas,Bridget,and
There are conflicting reports about whether John came from County Mayo or
County Clare(County Clare appears as John's and Bridget's birthplace on his
son Thomas's death certificate) John may have had a sister Margaret and
Bridget may have had a brother James. A Margaret Rowan and James McMahon
were sponcers at the baptism of Bartholomew. The only other associated names
are TIERNEY and PENDERGAST.
