Is there anyone out there searching my McGOUGH's???? If so maybe this
information will help and maybe you can help me with my search. I can't find
where in Ireland (County) they came from. I know from the census information
(below) that they arrive prior to 1845. Any help will be greatly

McGOUGH, McGOFF, MAGOUGH, this is the spelling of my GParents name on ths
census from 1845 to1900.

1845 Census for Canandaigua, Ontario, NY lists

David McGOUGH with wife (Mary) and 2 male children, John and one who died
prior to the 1850 census. It also lists number of family members born in
Great Briton or possesions 3 (David, Mary and John).
Just for information: taken from 1845 Census, they had 1 Acre planted in
potato's, 3/4 of acre planted in corn, 1 milk cow that produced 40 pounds of
butter during the year and owned 2 hogs. (sure love that 1845 census)

NOTE: David McGOUGH is my GGGfather
Mary McGOUGH is my GGGmother
John McGOUGH is my GGFather

Note different spelling as mentioned.

Document received from Surrogate Court, Canandaigua, Ontario, New York
Petition of George F McGOUGH son of the deceased Mary McGOUGH dated July
1. George is listed on Surrogate Court Record as Mary’s son.
2. Hattie V (McGOUGH) SHERWOOD living in Washington DC (my GMother).
3. Alice (McGOUGH) MULLARYEY (Hattie’s sister) Living at the corner of 2nd
Ave and 98th street, New York City, NY.
4. William McGOUGH son, residing at 411 Monroe Ave, Rochester, NY (Wayne
5. Hattie H. JONES, Daughter Residing, Canandaigua, NY (Harriet, b.1847).
6. Maggie E CLARK, Daughter, Residing in Shortsville, NY (Margaret, b.
7. Joseph H. McGOUGH a son Residing at St Johns (not sure of the word, it
may be Mission, still checking).
8. John McGOUGH (beleaved to be Hattie and Alice’s brother, born about
1868/9) an inmate of Willard Asylumn for the insane, located in Willard,
Seneca County, NY.
9. George McGOUGH a son, his petition.

I have a hand written statement made by George F. McGOUGH and Notarized
by a member of the Court that states that John McGOUGH was in Willard Asylumn
on 19 December 1893, and that he had been there for approximately 12 years
and that he was approximately 25 years old, that makes his date of birth
The best I can come up with is that his Parents were John and Emma
McGOUGH and that Alice and Hattie were his sisters. I can’t figure out what
happened to him from birth until he was placed in Willard. There is not any
mention of him anywhere and he’s not listed on the 1875 and 1880 Census.

Note: I received the following information from Dianne, a member of the
McGOUGH Mail list: The marriage is from the Ontario City Times paper and is
the date of the paper, not the marriage.
Dec. 11 1878 CLARK Geo W & McGOUGH Maggie E; married in Medina; bothe of
Canandaigua. (note, check Wayne County, she thinks she saw the name
mentioned in that County. (will check)
