Creegan Family History

1910-1919

 

 

 

*     John W. Creegan describes his early life in Alexandria in this interesting story about Blouse House and the Slave Pen.

 

1910 Census:

 

*     Michael and Ida Creegan are still on South Royal (I think it is still 217).

Creegan,    Michael (51)

                   Mary I. (48), 7 surviving children out of 8 [William Joseph died in 1907]

                   Ida R. (21)

                   Bessie E. (19)

                   John T. (17)

                   Rose (15)

                   Owen (13)

                   Marguerite (11)

Duffey,       Mary C. (23), daughter of, Wd

[Note: husband Charles Edward Duffey died in 1907. Also, the 1900 census names him as Edward C. Duffey]

                   Nelson C. (4), grand-son

                   Mary M. (3), grand-daughter

Kinslow,     Sarah (68), mother-in-law, Wd, 3 surviving children out of 4

 

 

*     The Edmonds’ are still living at 423 Queen Street.

Edmonds,  George (45)

                   Bessie (43), married 21 years with 6 children surviving out of 6

                   May (19)

                   Ruth (17)

                   Bessie (16)

                   Charles (13)

                   John (9)

                   Sarah (6)

Simpson,   George (18)

 

William Creegan and Katie Reinhardt have married and moved on with their lives since 1900.

 

 

*     Hannah Creegan and her children are living with her mother Isabella at 111 Prince Street.

Hall,            Isabella (65), Wd

                   James W. (33), son, Wd

Creegan     Hannah (28), daughter, Wd, 3 surviving children out of 4

                   Joseph (7)

                   John (5)

                   Ruth (3)

 

 

*     Katie Creegan, daughter of Hugh Creegan, is now living with Alice Lynch nee Edelin at 1021 Princess Street. Katie would marry Earl Popkins prior to 1920. I wonder where she was in 1900?

Lynch,        Alice (42), Wd, 2 surviving children out of 3

                    [Note: sister to Mary Martina Creegan nee Edelin]

                   John (21), son

                   Robert (20), son

Martin,        Mary (36), sister, Wd, 1 surviving child out of 1

[Note: this persons age would be correct for Mary Matina. Did she re-marry to a Martin? And he died also? Did she name another child Elsie?]

                   Elise or Elsie (sp?) (2), niece

Creegan,    Katie (16)

Edelin,        Lewis (72), father, Wd

                   Elizabeth (64), mother, Wd, 2 surviving children out of 2

                   Charles (46), brother, Wd

                   Charles Jr. (16)

[Note: this is more than confusing – why are the mother and father marked as widowed. I count 2 sisters and a brother, why does the mother say she had 2 children? This is why I am having trouble tracing the Edelin’s.]

 

 

*     312 North Pitt Street is now occupied by John Wardon. Does anyone know if they have a relationship with the Creegan family?

 

*     In 1910, Michael McCann, son of Bernard McCann is living in Washington, DC with his wife Irene and family.

McCann,    Michael (55), married 23 years

                   Irene T. (47), 5 surviving children out of 6

                   Bernard (19), son

                   Irene C. (17), daughter

                   Minnie R. (10), daughter

                   Simonton,  Ellen P. (21), daughter

Burgdorf,   Mary T? (22), daughter

                   Robert E. (25), son-in-law

                   Roberty E. (2), grand-son (not shown – it is on next page of census)

 

Michael dies on 5 June 1910 at 603 L. St. NE, Washington DC. He was a stone mason and was buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Michael’s death certificate can be viewed in the McCann Concise History.

 

Irene dies on October 4, 1914 at 808 F St. NE, Washington DC. She is buried in Granite, Baltimore County, MD, her home town. You can view her death certificate in the McCann Concise History.

 

 

 

 

*     I have not been able to locate the Bernard McCann residence at 4 ½ Street SE, DC in the 1910 census but I know it exists and had McCann’s living there in 1890, 1900 and 1920.

 

Bernard dies on June 5, 1914 at 361 Eye St. SW, Washington DC. He is buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. His death certificate can be viewed in the McCann Concise History.

 

*     Mary Shlesinger dies on December 8, 1912 at 832 4 ½ St. SW, Washington DC. She is buried in Mt. Olivet Cemetery. You can view her death certificate in the McCann Concise History.

 

*     John and Laura McCann are still in DC. They have 3 more children. Laura E., Bernadine and Francis T. They have 5 surviving children out of 6. John is a plumber.

 

 

*     In 1910 Thomas McCann, son of John and Sarah McCann, is living in Webb City, Jasper County, Missouri with his wife Belle, son Bernard, and daughter Blanche Walker, her husband John and their son Francis. These were their only 2 surviving children out of 6 born.

 

*     Thomas McCann (above) died on April 14, 1911 in Webb City. His death certificate lists John McCann as his father but Belle did not know his mother’s maiden name (Owens). His death certificate can be viewed in the McCann Concise History.

 

*     In 1910 Thomas’ brother Hugh is living in St. Louis with his family.

 

 

*     Hugh McCann, son of John McCann, died Feb. 28, 1918 in St. Louis. His death certificate lists John McCann as his Father and Sarah Owens as his mother. Hugh’s death certificate can be viewed in the McCann Concise History.
