Re: [genpcncfir] mcgowans / May Museum
- Dear Lisa, Roger Kammerer told me about the book and
the Museum. I would never have made any connection
between the Mays and the McGowans except for a couple
of pieces of information from the 1850 census online
at the PCFR website. It gives three MCGOWAN children
living with May families; Nancy and an infant
Harriet(I believe her name was) living with Lavinia
MAY and her brother WILLIAM McGOWAN (WILLIAM L, I
believe he might have been, but don't quote me on this
because I don't even remember now where I got that
impression, and though I've been meaning to look up
the actual 1850 census in the library on microfilm to
see whether either Lavinia or James recorded the
relationship to them of these McGowan children, I have
never done so. Since no parent of the children was
living in either household, I'm thinking they were
either Lavinia's grandchildren or nieces and nephews
that she took following the early death of the
parents) was living with James MAY--son of Lavinia
May. I hope this helps. Let me know if you find out
more or discover a link tying these families together.

My short answer is no.
I believe that your Charles James O'HAGAN was born in
Co. Londonderry, Ireland to Martha O'KANE [d: 1853]
and John Patrick O'HAGAN [d: bef 1850]. There were at
least eight children.
He became a physician and then immigrated to the USA,
but I haven't researched when or how. In 1846, he
marries Ann Elizabeth Courtney 'Eliza' Forrest, a Pitt
county girl. The 1850 NC Census indicates he is the
father of a 2 yo and his two younger sisters live with
him. His younger brother, John is also in Pitt county
Many Hagans (all spellings) immigrated to the USA,
many from Ireland.
Johan HAGEN entire family from Romskog, Norway by 1921
Thomas HAGAN maybe from Tyrone (Munster), Ireland
married in Maryland in 09 Jun 1670
Ann and my Dempsey Hagens evidently married 12 Oct
1835 Edgecombe County. I don't know yet if he was born
here or immigrated. There is a possibility he
descended from Thomas HAGAN.
