  • Deaths in Massachusetts (1852-1855), With Named Parents, of Irish Natives Born Before 1800

    Richard Andrew Pierce

    The previous article in this series (NEXUS 10[April 1993]:64-68) treated Irish natives over 50 years of age who died in Massachusetts during the first decade of statewide record keeping (1841-1851), and whose death records name parents. This second installment carries the series through 1855. After 1851, the peak year of Famine immigration, there is a small increase in reporting names of parents of Irish immigrants; thus the volumes and page numbers are provided below for easy reference. Towns with the best coverage remain Chicopee, Lowell and Boston; the first two add street addresses (the last does not). In all cases the town’s copy of the death record might be checked for the name of the cemetery (not reported on state copies until the early 1900s). Plot listings in cemetery records and/or nearby tombstones may help identify further relatives. By 1855 also, city directories with names, addresses, and occupations for most heads of household are available for many towns in Massachusetts, particularly the larger cities.

    The writer hopes that these extracted records, especially when combined with the 1850 federal and 1855 state censuses, and the Missing Friends series of newspaper advertisements (now published through 1856), will help to extend many ancestral lines to Ireland. We hope to publish these extracts through 1880.

    *Parents’ names, especially in some of the 1855 Lowell entries, could be somewhat suspect, since fathers’ given names are identical to those of male decedents, and the names of female decedents likewise echo those of their “mothers.” Could some of these names actually be those of decedents and their spouses?
