Hi Jeanette - please don't start a new thread - as it's the same family we should continue on here ....

That we we have the background info to refer to and don't duplicate research.
:-)

EDIT: From pm

Her parents were Margaret Henry married to Edward R Simonsen.
According to 1940 census she was 6 years old.

Jeanette, I posted a 1955 City Directory entry on page 1 where Maureen was a student - the situation was the same in 1957, this is a later one still:

U.S. City Directories, 1821-1989 (Beta)

Name: Maureen Simonsen
Residence Year: 1959
Residence Place: Montclair; Caldwell; Essex Fells; Verona; Cedar Grove; Glen Ridge, New Jersey
Occupation: Married
Publication Title: Montclair, New Jersey, City Directory, 1959

What it actually says on the image is that 97 South Prospect V is the address of Edward R Simonsen (working as a service manager at 654 Bloomfield Ave) and wife Margaret.
Underneath it has "Maureen married John F Murray jnr rem to Bloomfield"

So, that implies that Maureen married between 1957 and 1959. That's probably too recent to find details of an actual marriage or subsequent records.

From the new thread (best continue on here)

"I am trying to find my cousin Maureen Simonsen, born c 1934 in New York. Her parents names were Margaret Henry married to Edward R Simonsen. In 1940 her age was given as 6 years old.They lived in New Jersey. I believed Maureen married
and has a family. That is all I know about her. My Aunt died in 1978 (thanks to genes reunited for the info)"

(Actually, the info was from another site! ;-) )
