Their children were John 1870, Catherine 1882, James 1875, Mary 1872, Bella 1877, Julia 1879, George 1888, Edward 1885.

In 1880 they lived on Spring Street, in Pa.

Looking for any descendants.

I'm not sure if there is any connection but my g-g-grandmother, Helen Gertrude Meighan, was born in 1871 in Pennsylvania. I don't know if she was born in Wilkes-Barre but I do know she lived there many years. I have her on the 1900, 1910,1920 and 1930 census in Wilkes-Barre married to Bernard Murphy.

Based on the time frame on location perhaps she was a cousin of John, Catherine, James........

Interestingly, Helen had 6 children, two were named Mary and Edward.

Please let me know if you think there may be a connection.

Thanks,
Ray

Hi:
I think I have information on the brother of John Meighan or certainly a relative. I have information on Frank Meighan born about 1861 in Wilkes Barre Pa who married Catherine Montague and had 7 children born between 1887 and 1899 in Wilkes Barre. Most of their married lives they lived in Parsons Pa. Let me know if you are interested in any more information. I think the census information may be a help to you as well. I am particularly interested in finding the children of Gus Meighan born 1899 in Wilkes Barre to Frank and Catherine Meighan. Gus died in August 1984 in Queens NY

I am related to Francis Meighan born 1861 who married Catherine Montague born 1862 and had 7 children. They lived in Parsons Pa most of their lives

I am also related to a Catherine and Elizabeth Meehan(sisters) who married 2 brothers John born 1861 and Patrick Montague born 1863, John and Patrick were siblings of Catherine Montague Meighan. These families lived in Miners Mills most of their lives

I do know the parents of Elizabeth and Catherine Meehan were Conrad and Mary Munday Meehan from the Tamaqua Pa area in Schuylkill County
