I'm looking for information on James McGuire, born in Brewster, PUtnam
County, about 1892. He was my husband's great-grandfather. James sired
Margaret Mary McGuire, born in Waterbury, CT on 18 February, 1914.
James was married to Margaret's mother, Florence Holmes, at Immaculate
Conception Catholic Church in Waterbury, CT, on 30 June, 1913.
James supposedly died sometime shortly after Margaret's birth. Florence
Holmes remarried to a non-Catholic man named Fred Spring, and had 13
more children, the first ones (twins) born in May, 1918.
If anyone out there can help me with any ideas at all, I'd be most

gparents and ggparents resided in both NJ & NY but not real sure of locations
yet so not sure where to post. Any help would be appreciated. I'd like to
make myself a list to keep track of where I've posted so I can track progress.

Does anyone on the list know if there is a published book of
Putnam/Dutchess Co. Marriages? If not, how does one access the marriages
