Looking for WARD, COYNE & FLANAGAN family members who left Ireland c. 1870-1880 and
settled in New Jersey, USA.
Mary Coyne was born abt. 1820 and was the daughter of Thomas Coyne and Margaret. She
married John Ward, came to the US a widow <1880> and died in Jersey City, NJ 1894.
They had at least 2 children:
One son, Michael Ward, came to the US in 1870 married Mary (Nora) Flanagan (daughter of
Peter Flanagan and Ann McGrath). They had five children: John, James, Margaret, Mary
The second son, John, married and lived in Govan, Scotland. He and his wife, name
unknown, had at least 5 children: Joseph, Mary, Margaret, Jessie and James.
We have no firm records placing the family in Donegal. Just a possibility. Thank you.
