Response--News: Neillsville Merry-go-round (1899)

Contact: Colleen Tolva



I am looking for information on Margaret Gerrey Garvin who died on July 29 1899 in Town of York, Clark Co. Wisconsin. I thought there would be an article in the newspaper because she had been the oldest citizen in the state at 106 years. She was my ggggrandmother. Any more information or newspaper articles other than her obit? I'm trying to find out where she came from in Ireland. I believe it was Furmoy, Cork , Ireland and she was born on 25 Dec. 1792! WOW! Does anyone have any information on her or her family? Her husbands' name was William Garvin and they had 17 children. He died in Canada in 1869 . In 1882 they moved to Wisconsin, to Pine Valley,Neillsville, and Town of York area. Thank you so much. Colleen Tolva, Vancouver, Wa
