You could contact new york public records office, now each state has it its own rules on what information they give out, but they may a lookup facility there whereby you could at least confirm if james did die in new york in 1924

the link below will take you to their page http://www.nyc.gov/html/records/html/vitalrecords/death.shtml

if you do manage to get any more info please let me know and I will try to help further

hi lorraine,
thank you for all your help,there is no one i can ask ,all i have is what i told you,the only thing that i keep going back to is the illegitamate daughter who came foward,as i know nothing of her this is going to be one of those line's that will very hard to sort.
i think it may be the wrong james,as his wife &children would have claimed his estate,
on his passenger listing he is down as a clerk,but that may not have been the truth,
it is so annoying to keep comming up against a brick wall,he will turn up one day,(i hope),do you know of any other record's i might try to look at,
do they do cemetry record's or anything like that.

I cannot find a marriage for jennie and james nor births of the children New York records are not yet fully transcribed online

familysearch.org have started transcribing new york deaths and marriages but are not complete and cannot find anything for the family.

Do you have anyone in Ireland who could confirm his date and place of death if he definatly died in 1924 then the james on the 1930 census is not right.

hi lorraine,
i only have that he took his own life in 1924 ,i have no idea why he did this ,it is this that keep's me looking for answer's,
is there any surname for jennie other than mangan,maybe i could look her up to see if i could out anything.
i know that ellis island, new york was mentioned,so i think that must be were he died,sorry i do not have any more info but the last elderly relative died a while ago,
anything at all you can find will be good as i may be able to find info from ireland.

Im not sure if he is the correct james as he is still alive in 1930 is there any possibility he could have died later than 1924, I cannot find a death for him around that year although not all records for USA are complete online.

But he is the only james I can find with the right year of birth in new york area

Thanks a lot, Lorraine.

I will have a go at writing to the person in the USA.
I suppose the other alternative is that Emile died.

I'm very grateful for your assistance.
Best wishes

cant find any evidence of emile in usa or canada unfortuanlty

as for william according to a public tree on ancestry melissa died in 1913 her maiden name was stoner obviously this is what is on the tree not proven and there is one living child as the child is living no details are given says melissa died in missouri .

so we need to find the children of william and melissa if the william in missouri born india is right

i dont have access to missouri births and i cant find a marriage for melissa and william either sorry

I cant find anything for william or emile on a passenger list

Chrissie-

Thanks for posting that info.

I don't want to hijack Lorraine's thread, so maybe it's better if I PM you.

Thanks again Lorraine for your efforts. If you could find the immigration entry record for William it would be great, but please don't worry if it's too much to ask.
