My fathers name is Jerry Lee Madison, son of Calvin Madison and Wilma Bush. He married a woman named Billie Jean Krozier and had two daughters. Jeannette Madison born Dec. 25 1971 and Laura Madison born in 1974. I believe that is the correct information. If anyone knows anything please contact me, my father would like to get in contact with them before he passes on. He believes that they should be somewhere in Kansas or Missouri.

WOW! What a wonderful story. I'm actually looking for some very old Madisons. My G-G-Aunt, Margaret T. MCGARRY married Ambrose Gilmer MADISON back in 1880. Below is my McGarry and Wilson tree. Margaret was one of four girls and one son in the McGarry family. If any of it relates to your searches, I'd love to hear about your family lines.

Best of luck in your search,
Pat Wilson-Perkins

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Note: Gen 2 - On Annie’s & Thomas’ son's birth certificate it is noted that Annie was born in Scotland, however, my father remembers his “Aunt Nellie” (her sister) telling him that the family home was in Armagh, Ireland.

Note: Gen 2 - In the 1930 Census for Katharine Fielding it has that she was born in Scotland but both her parents were born in Northern Ireland

Note: Gen 2 - On May 29th 1890 Ellen F. McGarry was married to William Kirby in Brooklyn, NY. The marriage certificate states that Ellen's home address was 196 15 St., S. Brooklyn. She was born in Kilmarrick, Scotland. Her father was J. P. McGarry and her mother was Catherine McKeon; which is another spelling for Catherine's Maiden name! William Kirby was the son of Samuel Kirby and Mary Walsh.

The WILSON side

ANDREW WILSON - (GG-GF) b. IRELAND D.O.B.: Unknown Spouse: Unknown Date & Place of Death: Unknown, presumed USA, NYC area

THOMAS FRANCIS WILSON, (G-GF) b.1863 in Connecticut (?), USA, married to Annie MCGARRY, lived in Brooklyn, NY, died 6/19/1928 and buried in Brooklyn, NY, Green-Wood cemetery.

Have TFW on census records in 1900 with his wife, Annie C McGarry & son, TFW, Jr., 1910 (after his wife died) and 1920 census all in Brooklyn all saying birthplace "Connecticut" and both parents from "Ireland".

We don't really know if the Wilson's were Catholic or Protestant. We sort of feel that they might have been Protestant and converted to Catholic when they married into the McGarry line, but again no solid proof. Until I can get more details about Andrew or TFW, Sr.'s birth and youth I really don't have anything to go on.

Note: On their son's birth certificate it is noted that Annie was born in Scotland, however, my father remembers his aunt (her sister) telling him that the family home was in Armagh, Ireland. It was verified on her death certificate that both of her parents were born in Ireland. She was Scottish by birth since she was born there and lived in Scotland until they emigrated to the U.S. however her parents were both Irish so she was of full Irish ancestry. Her father is John McGarry Birthplace: Ireland. Her mother's Maiden Name is listed differently in various sources. Annie's death certificate has it as: Catherine McGone (I think, but I'm going to have to check the penmanship and see if it's anything else.) Birthplace: Ireland, for Catherine. Annie was born in Scotland. Annie died at the age of 44 yr. 10 mos. 9 days. She was a resident of the U.S. and of NYC for 41 years. So she lived in Scotland for 3 years. Her parents must have gone to Scotland to find work either before Catharine was pregnant with Margaret or during her pregnancy and then stayed in Scotland. They emigrated to the U.S. in 1874 (?) date not definite. Margaret was the oldest child (b. March 1864, Scotland; d. September 23, 1940); Annie was second (b. February 6, 1870, Scotland, d. February 3, 1915); John P. Jr. was third (b. 1876 (?) I'm not sure where this date came from; or 1864 according to the 1910 census, d. 9/1934, he is the only family member interred in the McGarry family plot in Holy Cross cemetery. All the girls are in Green-Wood cemetery.) I had thought that John had been born in Brooklyn, NY but the 1910 census has his birthplace as Scotland so we aren't sure. Katherine "Kate" is fourth (b. 1880, d. Apr. 2, 1939) and Ellen "Nellie" is the youngest (b. Sept. 1867, however on her marriage certificate it said "age 26" on May 29, 1890 which would have put her birth year 1864 & d. Dec. 7, 1936) My husband found a McGarry family on a ship manifest for the Olympia that arrived 17 June 1872 with all five children with the same names, there was one additional child, Mary A. born 1858, and an adult female that was probably Catherine but her signature didn't transcribe correctly when they were copying it. Could it be that an older child died some time during childhood but I don’t have any record of it?

Gaelic spelling of McGarry/magfhearadhaigh sent by: Philip McGarry on 29 Mar 2005 link to
http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/msg/an/0dz.2ACEB/257

The 1870 Federal census for NYC, 8th District, 18th Ward, page 24, lists a “Thomas McKEON” age 40, Furniture Dealer, Irish nationality, and a “John MCGARRY”, age 35, Marble Polisher, Irish nationality, both living at the same address. This could be my John and a relative of Annie’s family. The age matches for my John.

The Green-Wood records only had the dates of death. From Annie's death certificate her birth date may be March 25th 1870 since they listed her age as 44 years, 10 mos. and 9 days but no birth date. On her gravestone, it's February 6th 1870. We'll have to work on clarifying that some more. She had been sick from April 1914 until her death on February 3, 1915. She died of General Exhaustion (primary) and Pernicious Anemia (secondary). Initially interred in Holy Cross Cemetery but removed to Green-Wood Cemetery on 5/16/1919. Annie was 19 yrs. and 7 or 8 months when she gave birth to Grandpa/Dad's Dad, Thomas F. Jr. on October 14, 1889 so her death was unrelated to his birth.

Catherine McGarry’s Maiden Name was spelled as MCGONE on her daughter’s ANNIE MCGARRY WILSON’S death certificate. It could also possibly be spelled MCGORE on Annie’s death certificate since it is difficult to read. On her daughter’s MARGARET’S death certificate her Maiden Name is spelled MCKUHNE. However on Catherine's daughter's Ellen's marriage certificate Catherine's Maiden Name is spelled Catherine McKEON, which is probably the one that is correct since she was still alive at Ellen's marriage and not at the death of Annie and Margaret)
