Margaret McNAMARA

Margaret McNamara                 1843-1888

Margaret McNamara was the daughter of Stephen Shea and Catherine Corbett.  She was born in Ireland.  Shea family history information has Margaret being married to John Ryan in 1858.  Margaret and John had one daughter, Ellen who was born in 1859.  John Ryan died that year and was buried in Hopetoun Cemetery on 5th August, 1859.  He was the son of Patrick and Ellen Ryan.  A Margaret Ryan married Patrick McNamara in 1862. I assume it was John’s widow.
