In my search for the vital events and genealogy of great-grandmother Hannah (née Gallagher) Holmes I decided that I would summarize some of the ages that I have found on certain possibly-related documents. The following is a Table presenting ages as presented on some of the Documents that I have on file that relate to all possible Hannah Gallagher and Hannah, Hanora, Honora, Hanna, and Anna Holmes.
Census Date Recorded Age Recorded/Possible Birth Date Hannah Gallagher 1860 03 Jun 1860 4/12 Feb 1860 1870 29 Aug 1870 12 1858 Hannah Holmes 1880 18 Jun 1880 25 1855 1890 - - - 1900 12 Jun 1900 45 Aug 1854 1910 28 Apr 1910 54 1856 1920 08 Jan 1920 55 1865 1930 14 Apr 1930 74 1856
As previously discussed in my earlier Postings, and based on Family History, and on the various Family Trees that I have been able to find entered to Ancestry.com, there are a number of coincidences that could indicate that great-grandmother Hannah Holmes may indeed have been the referenced Hannah Gallagher.
I am still waiting for responses from the authors of the public Family Trees entered on Ancestry.com. I have also sent an inquiry and research request to the Historical Society of Schuylkill County in the hopes that there may be a slim chance of finding a marriage record of great-grandparents John and Hannah Holmes. I would tender a guess that their marriage, if there was one, may have occurred at some time before the 10 June 1876 birth of their first son, granduncle John Herbert Holmes.
The next image is my Clooz 3.0 Hannah Gallagher report summarizing 17 of the documents that I have on file.
Please note that four Birth Event documents of great-grandmother Hannah Holmes children are not included in the Hannah Gallagher report. I have not been able to find the Birth/Baptism Registrations for granduncle Richard Boyd Holmes, nor of the twins, granduncles Oliver and Oscar Holmes. Also, even though I have discovered the actual 1898 Baptism Registration for grandmother Hannah Myrtle (née Holmes) Doherty there is no indication of the names of her parents on the registration.
I would certainly appreciate questions, thoughts, ideas, facts, and sources regarding the life and times of great-grandmother Hannah (née Gallagher) Holmes. Please feel to contact me via email.
And I am recuperating from my Olympic try-outs.
