Who are Maria Carter's parents - WORK IN PROGRESS
Mary Mahoney's mother was Maria Carter. But who were Maria's parents? What do we know? We think she was born in May 1878 in Ireland, I recall hearing she was from outside Dublin. But it could have been outside anywhere, my memory not being perfect. She spoke Irish fluently as her first language. So she was most likely from an Irish speaking area, rather than an English speaking town. She named her only daughter Mary Margaret. So the names Mary and Margaret probably had some family connection besides her own name. She was married to John Mahoney (b. Ballineen, Co. Cork; d. Harrison, NJ). She died 15 February 1933. From a death record, we know Maria's father was John Carter and her mother's first name was Maria. On all of the birth/baptism records of the Mahoney children, the mother's maiden name is Mary or Maria Carter.
We have not been able to find her marriage record to John Mahoney. Maria Carter Mahoney died 1933.
