Mowen McAloon

I recently discovered that my Great Grandmother Susan Mowen may have had a sister Elizabeth.  Elizabeth was married to John McGinnis and they had a son Patrick who died in July of 1895 in New York City.   There may have also been a a brother Michael who had a wife named Mary - they too lived in New York City during this time frame.See More
