Randy over at Genea-Musings asks: Who is #21 on your Ahnentafel list?
Sarah Jane WARD, my second great-grandmother, was born in April 1875 in Illinois to Bridget and ?? Ward. She married Timothy J McMAHON about 1899. He was born on 14 May 1874 in Chicago. Together they had two children: John Ward McMAHON (b. 7 April 1902 in Chicago) and Timothy G McMAHON (b. 17 March 1904 in Chicago). John is my great-grandfather.
I don't know too much about Sarah. Her and Timothy lived and raised their children in Chicago. She died on 29 December 1939, just a few months after Timothy, who died on 14 October.
What's ironic is that I was working on this line yesterday. Okay, I was working on several lines yesterday as I searched the Cook County birth and marriage records on FamilySearch. I found her son's Timothy's birth certificate (I already had John's). Then I spent some time trying to figure out her mother's maiden name and her father's first name. I have some leads but need to track down some records before I can go any further.
Now, if Randy would have picked #23, I could have written a book!
