About Patrick Carr



BIRTH: Estimate from 1870 and 1880 censuses. Place of birth from census reports and from letter from Aunt Rose Carr Siegman to Frederick Riley dated 14 Jan 1934: "You asked me about our family record. I am afraid I can not be of much help as I have no record but I'll give you as much as I can remember from my mother's talks. First, I know nothing about my father except that he was born in Donegal, Ireland."

(DEATH: Search 93, Probate court death record, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, pg 280 Document #195 Peggy Craig Riley, wife of Edward T. Riley, related that she had heard often that Edward's grandfather Patrick Carr had been run over by a train or a streetcar. The record of deaths info is consistent, as it says he was "injured by fall". It stated he was 64 years old, married. However, it states that he died at 121 Herman Street and it lists his profession as an Insurance agent - so this may not be correct man!!!) In the 1880 Census, The Carrs lived on Detroit Street. I believe the probate court record was improperly transposed, as person #4, Hugh Brown, is listed as a store keeper and living on Detroit, which fits person #5, Patrick Carr (who, is, in fact, the 4th name on the page even tho it is numbered 5)

  • Note:

City of Cleveland Return of Birth record (#171 A) shows birth of a daughter to Patrick Carr and Mary Conniff on 1/17/78. If it is the same Patrick Carr, that child does not appear on this 1880 census. Likely the child did not live - look for death before 1880 Another birth of a child to the Carrs is recorded on 30 March 1879. Likely this is Grace, or Julia Grace. As Julia Grace's sister Rose was older than she, probably Isabelle is that sister. Wife: Mary Julia Conniff

According to Edward Riley; Grandma Carr was head of the Commissary for the Great Northern Railroad, planning all the food. She was a widow; grandson edward believed her husband had worked for the railroads in Ohio, but Cuyahoga County birth records show Mary and Patrick Carr having a girl baby on March 31, 1879 who would match the age of Grace in the 1880 Census. Therefore. I have no doubt that this is the correct family. It also stands to reason that the family was prosperous, as Julia Grace was raised to "be a lady"
