Hugh McCartney

Hugh McCartney, the son of Hugh McCartney and Susan Carlon, was born about 1841 in Ireland, possibly in or around Londonderry. He has not been found in the 1900 or later US censuses, so it is currently assumed that he died prior to 1900.

Hugh immigrated to the US with his mother and three siblings prior to 1860, and possibly in 1858. Speculation is that they came through Philadelphia, rather than New York. There is also no record of father Hugh McCartney arriving or living with any of the family.

Hugh appears to have been married twice. His first marriage was to Mary O'Neill on September 5, 1867, at St. John's R.C. Church in Orange, New Jersey. Based on the marriage records, Mary was born about 1841, and died prior to 1893. Her parents were John and Mary O'Neill.

Hugh and Mary had the following known children:

  1. Mary Joanna McCartney (1870-??)
  2. Susan McCartney (1872-??)
  3. Hugh Patrick McCartney (1873-??)
  4. James McCartney (1876-1877)

Another marriage record has been found for Hugh, with the same parents as listed above. This marriage was to Elizabeth Douglas Higgins on February 14, 1893. Just as with his first marriage, this one took place at St. John's R.C. Church in Orange, New Jersey. There have been no records found for any children born to this couple.
