Alice Fitzgerald Bresnahan

+2 votes
I am researching my Irish roots, I've come to learn that my great-great grandmother may be Alice Fitzgerald, who married Thomas Bresnahan (born 1866, died 1902 or 1912).

I do not know how many children Thomas and Alice had, I do know that one of them was Irene Bresnahan, who married my great-grandfater, Emmett Dougherty in Alamakee county, Iowa.  They had 8 children and lived on a farm outside of Waukon, IA.  Irene Bresnahan passed away in 1965, Emmett sometime in the early 1980's, both are buried near Waukon, IA.

This is all I know of this part of my Fitzgerald family history.  Any info would be greatly appreciated!

You  may E-mail me at jlswenka@yahoo.com, please put in the subject line Fitzgerald Genealogy so I won't think it's spam.  Thanks!  :)
