  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      Year of birth would be 1858-1859, according to age (23 years) in 1882 record of the marriage of Margaret Predegast to Bernard Carr in the Philadelphia Register of Marriages for 1882, page 161, line 3. Place of birth given as Ireland.
      Year of birth would be 1861-1862, according to age (27 years) in 1889 record of birth of her son Bernard Francis Carr. Place of birth given as Ireland.
      Year of birth would be 1860-1861, according to age (32 years) in 1893 record of birth of her son Hugh Joseph Carr. Place of birth given as Ireland.
      Year of birth would be 1858-1859, according to age (37 years) in 1896 entry in Register of Deaths in the City of Wilmington. Place of birth given as Ireland.
      Year of birth would be 1858-1859, according to age (37 years) in 1896 entry in burial records of Cathedral Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for Margaret Carr.
      Greater weight is given to the ages in her marriage and death records, so a year of birth of approximately 1859 is used here.

      DEATH:
      Full date given as 22 May 1896 in Register of Deaths in the City of Wilmington, 1895-1901, page 40, line 37, online in Delaware, Wilmington Vital Records, 1847-1954: Deaths 1888-1901, at www.familysearch.org. Cause of death was congestion of lungs. Location of death was "N.E. Water and King," a reference to the northeast corner of the intersection of Water and King Streets, Wilmington, Delaware, known to be the address of Bernard and Margaret Carr from the birth records of their children.
      Consistent with not being enumerated with family in 1900 U.S. Census, and husband listed as widowed in the 1900 U.S. Census and in his 1912 Death Certificate. This would place death between the 1894 birth of Walter Carr and the 1900 Census.

      BURIAL:
      Full date given as 25 May 1896 and location given as Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in death certificate
      Buried in Cathedral Cemetery, Section U, Range 6, Lot 25, according to records provided by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia Cemeteries Office to Robert M. Simon on 17 September 2012. Date of burial was 25 May 1896.
