I need help with this problem. Hopefully it will make sense to someone.
I have a Anna K Quinn living in Providence RI with her (stepmum) Margaret Peckham and Anna's Husband Joseph Quinn and 3 children.
Now when looking for Anna marriage in 1912 she states her parents where Frank Sheehan & Margaret Peart.
She also says she was born in 1887 Massachusetts, but I cant find a birth record for her.
Now here comes the difficult bit.
The Margaret she was living with in 1920 was born in Ireland. She first married Daniel SHEEHAN in 1884 in Boston MA. Then she married James Peckham in 1915 in Boston MA. James died in 1919 RI.
going by the info I learned from Anna's marriage, I decided to look for her in census (as I couldnt find Anna or Margaret before 1920)
I found a Margaret Peart living with Frank Peart and daughter Anna K Peart in Attleborough MA.
I know these are of the same family.
But could someone tell why the name change.???
I couldnt find a marriage for Frank Sheehan to Margaret/or Frank Peart to Margaret...
Can anyone shed any light????
