Moran Obituaries

Etc.  I've been working on my family's history and genealogy for more than 10 years.  My mother's paternal side of the family is Irish and my father's  family originated mostly in England and Germany.  I use Family Tree Maker to find and track them, and I've depended on family members to share their memories, expertise and knowledge.  Mom, I owe you the most.  You always answered my questions even when I wanted you to open up that old rusty file drawer that hadn't been opened in the recesses of your mind for more than 70 years.  Thank you mom for your patience with me, your memories, and maintaining your sense of humor throughout this new endeavor of mine.  Among others, I owe huge thanks to a "found" cousin, Priscilla, and a first cousin, Cathy, for sharing the results of their sometimes exhaustive searches.  In the process I've collected obituaries about family members and their friends.  This page is strictly Moran-related information.  If you're looking for PRATT's, look up top on the left, and click.
 
After our lives have passed, all we have left are those that cared we once lived.  For now, this is a work in progress and updated whenever I can, so check back often.    Family Tree information for Pratt's can be found here:  Priss' Place for Pratt Family History 
 
A Little Moran Information 
 
As far as I know, Dominick and Honora (Jennings) Moran were the first of my Irish ancestors to have ventured away from their homeland in County Mayo to begin a new life in the U.S. I've often wondered what mitigating factors made them want to leave. Famine maybe, but it was a little early for that. Unfair laws, taxes, politics, religion, land disputes or wars? Or were they just spirited folk looking for adventure? I can't imagine leaving my home and heritage behind forever! They must have had so many questions and thoughts. What should or would they be permitted to take with them? How would they say goodbye to family, friends and homeland? What perils would they face on the ocean? Sickness? Pirates? The uncertainties facing them once they arrived in the United States must have been overwhelming knowing that this country had just gained its independence from Britain a mere 65 years earlier! Did they know they were coming to Illinois because they had friends or family already here? I wish I knew those answers, but since I don't, I can tell you a little about them after their arrival.

They arrived about 1838-1839 with their daughters, Mary C. and Catherine. In the 1840 census, Dominick is shown in Cook County, Summit Precinct. In 1841 he purchased 80 acres of land for $1.25 per acre, in Lake County, IL. The land, about a mile north of the 5 Points, was labeled a slue but they developed it enough to build a log cabin and begin farming. Research indicates that 2 of their girls, Catherine and Margaret, died before marrying. John lived in MO and has yet to be found. One child adopted a child, and the other 2 children bore them 18 grandchildren.

Up until recently, I believed my only connection to the Atkinson family was by the marriage of my father's sister to an Atkinson. It's come to light that my maternal grandfather's Godfather was Matthew Atkinson, and that Matthew's Grandmother's maiden name was Moran and lived on the farm next to Dominick's. It may be that I am related to the Atkinsons via my mother and father. Perhaps more digging will give us the answers! 
Dominick was born about 1808 and died Sep 21, 1889. His wife, Honora (Jennings) was born about 1814 and died in 1853; both are buried in St. Mary's Cemetery, Waukegan, IL. Here, dedicated to them, is a brief look at their joys, sorrows, values and pride summarized through their obituaries.

DOMINICK MORAN

MORAN--Sept. 21, Dominick Moran, aged 83 years.  Funeral is tomorrow [Monday] at 11 o'clock. from the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Thomas Murphy, near Waukegan, IL.  (Note.  The Sunday Inter Ocean is a Chicago newspaper from which this one-line obit was found.  However, there is about a 10 year gap of archived newspapers in the Waukegan Public Library.  It appears they disappeared and no one knows their whereabouts.  Dominick's detailed obituary would have been in there, as well as his daughter, Mary C. Dwyer).

MARY C. DWYER

Unfortunately I haven't found any obituaries or pictures for Mary C. Moran, or her husband, Thomas Dwyer, but they remained in Lake County, IL all their lives.  Thomas was born 31 Mar 1834 in Schloharie, NY, the son of William and Mary (nee Murphy) of County Tipperary, Ireland.  He and Mary adopted Anna Lawless who was born about 1865, and as far as I know, they had no other children.  Anna married John J. Tiernan on 7 Oct 1889 and had one child, Mary Tiernan.

BRIDGET E. MORAN
 
 
 Mrs. Thomas Murphy Passed Away Last Night

SICK SEVERAL MONTHS

Born and Raised in the County--One of the Oldest Residents, Well Known Here. 

Shortly after 12 o'clock last night, Mrs. Bridget Murphy of Five Points, passed away after an illness extending over a period of several months.  Death was not unexpected.  In fact the family had despaired of the sick one's recovery some three weeks ago.  The cause of her demise was complication of heart, liver and kidney trouble.

The deceased was 57 years of age and had lived in this county all her life.  She was born in the town of Shields.  Her father was Dominic Moran, a well known resident of the county who died about 10 years ago.  Her two brothers are Edward F. Moran of Libertyville and John Moran of Missouri.

In 1866 she was united in marriage to Thomas Murphy.  Immediately after their marriage they moved upon the farm, about 1 mile north of Five Points, which has since been their home.  Five children were the result of the union, all of whom, with their father survive, and to whom the deepest sympathy of the community is extended.  The children:  Minnie, Joseph, Katherine, Gertrude and Thomas.

A member of the Catholic church in this city, Mrs. Murphy was always one of the most devout of its congregation and will be deeply missed.  Funeral will be held from the church, the time has not yet been decided.
