Scholefield Family Tree
Based on the finding that a Mary Ellen Fitzgerald married a man named John McVeigh in 1886, I decided it wouldn’t hurt to look for our Mary Ellen under that name. There is no guarantee that this is the same person though because there are no birthdates.
And to sum up the findings, there are no McVeigh or McVays living in San Francisco in 1900 that are named Mary or John who would have been of an age to have married in 1886. Luckily the 1900 Census Database at Ancestry.com allows you to search for marriage year. A search fitting our couple of interest does not turn up any results.
And lastly, looking for any Anna McVeighs born in 1879 in Arizona doesn’t turn up any results. A search for Annas born in 1879 in AZ doesn’t even turn up anything.
Because searches for Fitzgeralds as well as this new possiblility don’t help, it seems that the family was living some where like Antarctica! (Not really, they were either missed or are misindexed — or just plain not where I expect.)
I can’t answer the question about Mary marrying again — yet.
