  • Bible record for the John Gough Family, 1822-1878, Mss A 2731

  • John Gough and Mary Long married in Ireland 10 May 1822. Their oldest child, George, was also born in Ireland in 1823. The Goughs immigrated some time in 1823/1824 to Albany, N.Y. where their daughter Sarah was born. They eventually settled in Massachusetts living in various towns in Worcester County. The bible does not reveal county or placename in Ireland but there are notes written on the back of a page indicating they maintained ties with family in Ireland.
