    The top image shows the crossed out entry in the Register of Marriages for Assumption BVM Church, Philadelphia, for the marriage of William McGillin and Catherine McCoy on 5 April 1865, the date that is also given in Philadelphia City Records. The bottom image shows the marriage being shoehorned in between two entries in April 1864, so as to make it seem that the marriage was celebrated on 5 April 1864. However, the record is clearly contemporary to 1865, as there is no sequence number to the 1864 record, but there is for the 1865 record.

  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      Full date of birth given as 7 June 1865, in entry in the Philadelphia Birth Registers for 1865, page 165, abstracted in "Pennsylvania, Births and Christenings, 1709-1950," online at www.familysearch.org. Parents named as William and Catherine McGillian. Entry, however, is for "Ann McGillian." The actual entry is on page 173, line 33, not page 165. William and Catherine McGillian are listed as living on 913 Callowhill St., their known address in that year from Philadelphia City Directories and William's occupation is given as Shoemaker, also consistent with what is known of him at that time, so this appears to be the same daughter who was later known as Mary Ann.
      Full date also given as 7 June 1865 in transcription of baptismal record dated 25 June 1865 in the Baptismal Register of Assumption BVM RC Church, Philadelphia, on findmypast.com. The photograph of the register shows an ink spill that obscures the birth date for this and several other entries, but it may be more visible if the register is viewed directly. Name given is Mary Ann McGillian and parents named as William and Catherine McGillian. A later addition inserts "(nee McCoy)" after Catherine's name.
      Year of birth would be 1865-1866, according to age (4 years) in 1870 U.S. Census for Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, page 108, line 28. State of birth given as Pennsylvania. Enumerated as M. A. McGillian, a female, in the household of Wm. and Catherine McGillian, along with other relatives and employees.
      Year of birth would be 1864-1865, according to age (15 years) in 1880 U.S. Census for Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, page 397A, line 18. Enumerated as Mary Ann McGillen, with parents William and Kate McGillen and siblings and other lodgers and workers.
      Full date of birth given as 7 June 1865 in Philadelphia Marriage License no. 3765 (1886), on microfilm in the Philadelphia City Archives. Place of birth given as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Listed as Mary Ann Josephine McGillin, and a separate written consent form (since she was marrying as a minor of 20 years), names Willima McGillin, of 1312 Drury Street, as her father.
      Year of birth would be 1864-1865, according to age (30 years) in 1895 Philadelphia Death Certificate No. 9824 (1895) for Mary C. Dougherty. Parents named as William McGillin and Catherine McGillin.
      Additional middle name of Josephine given in Philadelphia Marriage Certificate.

      CHRISTENING:

      DEATH:
      Full date of 12 November 1895 given in Philadelphia Death Certificate No. 9824 (1895) for Mary C. Dougherty. Place of last residence given as 2021 South Broad Street, Philadelphia. Cause of death was pulmonary tuberculosis.
      Consistent with enumeration of children with grandparents in 1900 U.S. Census.

      BURIAL:
      Full date of 14 November 1895 given in Philadelphia Death Certificate No. 9824 (1895). Buried at Holy Cross Cemetery, Yeadon, Pennsylvania.
