Generation: 1

  1. 1.  John Dennis Foley, Sr. was born on 14 May 1908 in Watsonville, Santa Cruz, California (son of John Joseph "Jack" Foley and Elizabeth Lee "Bessie" Yagle); died on 18 Oct 1975 in Santa Clara County, California; was buried in Oak Hill Memorial Park, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

    Notes:

    He graduated magna cum laude from Santa Clara University Law School in 1932.

    In 1936, he ran as a Democrat to represent district 31 in the California State Assembly; he was defeated, 51.3% to 48.7%, by incumbent C. C. Cottrell, who (according to the Oakland Tribune, 5 Nov 1936, p. 8), had the evident advantage of running on both the Republican and the Democratic lines.

    In 1938, again running as a Democrat, he ran for the California State Senate, district 18. According to the 31 Aug 1938 San Francisco Examiner (p. 3), Palo Alto attorney Adron A. Beene beat him for the Republican nomination, and he beat Beene for the Democratic nomination. He went on to defeat Beene in the general election, 51.6% to 45.8%. (2.6% of the vote went to Progressive Party candidate Rolf B. Vinmont.) Accord to Patrick Foley, he was, at 30 years old, the youngest attorney ever elected to the California State Senate as of then. (Source for all of the preceding election numbers: JoinCalifornia, Election History for the State of California.)

    JoinCalifornia's listings omit the 1940 election for State Senate district 18, but the record of state senators at the official site of the California State Senate says that John D. Foley was re-elected in 1940. We have been unable to find any details of this election on Newspapers.com save for an Oakland Tribune line-listing that says he was re-elected. It does not name his opponent. Possibly he was unopposed.

    JoinCalifornia says that he was a judge of the Santa Cruz County Municipal Court from 1941 to 1961, then judge of the Santa Clara County Superior Court from 1961 to 1963. But this appears to be completely wrong. According to Patrick Foley's notes, in 1941 John D. Foley was appointed judge of the Santa Clara County Superior Court and held that position for the rest of his life.

    Patrick Foley is correct; JoinCalifornia is mistaken. On 17 Jul 1941, the Oakland Tribune, page 15, calls John D. Foley "Superior Judge-designate". On 27 Jul 1941, the same newspaper, page 4, refers to the evidently recent "appointment of State Senator John D. Foley to the superior bench in Santa Clara County," and local newspapers for the rest of 1941 consistently refer to John D. Foley as "Superior Court Judge". And while we have yet to find an obituary covering John D. Foley's death in 1975, on 12 Dec 1975 the Escondido Times-Advocate, page B6, reports that Gov. Jerry Brown has appointed Municipal Court Justice Sidney Feinberg of Palo Alto "to replace the late Judge John D. Foley on the Santa Clara County Superior Court." So it would appear that, just as Patrick Foley reports, John D. Foley served on the Santa Clara County Superior Court from 1941 to his death in 1975.

    JoinCalifornia also states that, as a state senator, he and Frank W. Mixter, Republican state senator from SD-32, co-authored SB 657 which established the California Streets and Highways Code.

    John married Zoe J. Hames before 1940. Zoe (daughter of John Cuthbert Hames and Mabel Elizabeth Anderson) was born on 3 Nov 1909 in Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, California; died on 2 Apr 1995 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Oak Hill Memorial Park, San Jose, Santa Clara, California. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    A card in the California State Library Biographical Index Cards collection gives the date of their marriage as 16 Nov 1937. However, ASF notes that the 1938 city directory of San Jose shows Zoe J Hames (described as "reporter Merchants Assn") still living with her parents at 424 N 16th. She and John Dennis Foley are definitely married by the time of the 1940 census.

    Children:
    1. John Dennis Foley, Jr. was born on 14 Nov 1939 in Santa Clara County, California; died on 18 Aug 1994 in Santa Clara County, California; was buried in Oak Hill Memorial Park, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

Generation: 2

  1. 2.  John Joseph "Jack" Foley was born on 22 Jul 1871 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California (son of John Foley and Honora Fleming); died on 2 Apr 1955 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

    Other Events:

    • Baptised: 29 Jul 1871, St. Joseph's, San Jose, Santa Clara, California

    Notes:

    From Patrick Foley (citation details below):

    Oldest child of John Foley and Honora Fleming Foley, John Joseph ("Jack") Foley lived in San Jose most of his life. He was baptized John Foley at St. Joseph's Church on July 29, 1871, with William Foley and Bridget Dempsey as his godparents. He attended Catholic schools--a convent school at San Fernando and San Pedro streets and "St Joseph's College," apparently a high school in Santa Clara.

    In 1889, at age 18, he was no longer in school, but worked as a teamster and lived at home. The following year he was listed in the city directory as a "laborer." He apparently found this style of life unsatisfactory, for he moved to Oakland, where in 1892 he lived at 567 Eighth Street and worked as a clerk with P. J. Flynn. In 1893 he was a salesman with T. M. O'Halloran & Co., and in 1894 he was a clerk with James A. Joyce. By 1897 he had moved to a building at 855 Washington known as the "Clarendon." He remained at this address, and at his employment with Joyce, until 1899. In that year or the next he left Oakland.

    He was married to a Miss Jewett during this period, but for unknown reasons the marriage terminated. He returned to San Jose where, in 1898, he went to work for Leopold Hart, owner of a "corner cash store" at Market and Santa Clara streets--an association which was to be lifelong. He married Bessie Yagle.

    John married Elizabeth Lee "Bessie" Yagle after 16 Oct 1900 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California. Elizabeth (daughter of Charles Henry Yagle, Sr. and Eliza Ellen Boggs) was born on 5 Jun 1878 in Allegheny, Allegheny, Pennsylvania; died on 31 May 1952 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 3.  Elizabeth Lee "Bessie" Yagle was born on 5 Jun 1878 in Allegheny, Allegheny, Pennsylvania (daughter of Charles Henry Yagle, Sr. and Eliza Ellen Boggs); died on 31 May 1952 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1879
    • Baptised: 13 Sep 1879, North Presbyterian Church, Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania

    Notes:

    Her Find a Grave page gives her place of birth as Allegheny West, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania. We believe this is confused. Both Philadelphia and Pittsburgh contain areas dating back to the 19th century called "Allegheny West." And a record of North Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh records the baptism of "Betsy Lee Yagle", parents "Charles and L. E. Yagle", on 13 Sep 1879.

    Furthermore, census records show that her father Charles was born in Ohio and her mother Eliza in Kentucky. Along with Detroit and Cleveland, Pittsburgh was a common catchment point for Ohio River Valley people looking for work in the city; Philadelphia was distinctly less so.

    Furthermore, the 1878 city directory of Pittsburgh shows her father living there, a clerk, at 136 Jackson.

    Furthermore, the 1880 census shows her age 1, living with her parents in Allegheny, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania. The municipality of Allegheny was annexed into Pittsburgh in 1907.

    Finally, her grandson Patrick Foley writes, in correspondence, "I believe Bessie Yagle was born in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, which later became Pittsburgh. Her parents lived there as early as 1860 and as late as 1880."

    In April 1894 her older sister Lida Alice married Antonio Lawrence Armetta, a Roman Catholic fruit dealer of Italian descent who was born in Louisiana. In December of that same year Bessie Yagle, aged 16, married Antonio's brother Joseph. Lida's marriage to Antonio lasted and produced six children, and according to Patrick Foley, "[t]he Armettas were an important part of the extended family in which Bessie's children grew up. Their home in San Jose was the scene of large gatherings of the extended family." Bessie's marriage to Joseph, however, must have ended before 17 Oct 1900, the date on which she and John Joseph Foley obtained a license to marry in San Jose.

    Children:
    1. Howard Patrick Foley was born on 14 Aug 1902 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; died on 9 May 1986 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in San Jose, Santa Clara, California.
    2. 1. John Dennis Foley, Sr. was born on 14 May 1908 in Watsonville, Santa Cruz, California; died on 18 Oct 1975 in Santa Clara County, California; was buried in Oak Hill Memorial Park, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.


Generation: 3

  1. 4.  John Foley was born about 1835 in Cahersiveen, Kerry, Ireland (son of William Foley and Catherine); died on 8 Oct 1915 in Santa Clara County, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Jun 1829, Ireland
    • Alternate birth: Abt 1836
    • Alternate birth: Abt 1838, Ireland
    • Alternate death: Aft 1912, San Jose, Santa Clara, California
    • Alternate death: Dec 1916, Santa Clara County, California

    Notes:

    According to California records, he was naturalized on 1 Oct 1857 in Moniteau County, Missouri.

    "Another interesting bit of information about the original John Foley was that, once he got to America, he paid for the passage of some of his siblings to emigrate. I believe there were at least two sisters who came to America that way, because there are two characters who appear in some family stories that were referred to as John J's cousins. One was named Jim Hickey, and he came from back East (for some reason I think Bridgeport, CT), and another was named Sullivan and was a stone carver who lived right next to the Foley house at 50 S. 9th St., San Jose.' [Correspondence with Foley descendant Teri Smith, 2020]

    "John Foley […] came to the United States from Ireland in 1850, and for a while lived at New Orleans and worked on the steamboats plying on the Mississippi. Then he joined the U.S. Cavalry and saw service on the great plains for five years. After that, for two years, he was a pony express rider from Box Elder to Salt Lake City, and finally, in 1860, he came to California. Until 1863 he was at Virginia City, and on his return to San Jose, he sailed in steamer service from San Francisco to Panama. He married Miss Honora Fleming, an accomplished lady, the mother of our subject. John Foley died in December, 1916, but his devoted widow is still living. They had two boys and two girls, and one of the latter died in 1894. A brother and sister are living on the old home place with their mother, the lot of which was purchased by the wide-awake father in early days in the trade of a saddle horse." [History of Santa Clara, California, citation details below]

    John married Honora Fleming on 19 Sep 1870 in Santa Clara County, California. Honora (daughter of Jacob Fleming and Sabina Caveny) was born in 1839 in Ireland; died on 25 Nov 1935 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Honora Fleming was born in 1839 in Ireland (daughter of Jacob Fleming and Sabina Caveny); died on 25 Nov 1935 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1842, Ireland

    Notes:

    "She came to the United States around 1860, by way of the Isthmus of Panama; having no money to ride across, she walked from the Caribbean shore to the Pacific." [Patrick Foley, citation details below]

    Children:
    1. 2. John Joseph "Jack" Foley was born on 22 Jul 1871 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; died on 2 Apr 1955 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.
    2. Margaret "Maggie" Foley was born on 17 Feb 1873; died on 6 Dec 1894; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.
    3. Catherine Theresa "Kate" Foley was born on 1 Aug 1879; died on 11 Dec 1962 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.
    4. William Edward Foley was born on 12 Dec 1879 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; died on 31 May 1955 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

  3. 6.  Charles Henry Yagle, Sr. was born about 1843 in Ohio; died before 12 Jun 1896 in Santa Clara County, California; was buried in Oak Hill Memorial Park, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1842, Ohio

    Notes:

    The 1880 census says that his parents were both born in Germany. Patrick Foley reports that Charles Henry Yagle's mother never learned to speak English and was referred to by her descendants as "Grossmudder Yagle."

    He appears in a muster roll of the 123rd Pennsylvania Infantry, age 20, enlisted at Pittsburgh 7 Aug 1862. An index card record exists for his widow's 27 Nov 1896 application for a pension based on his Civil War service; she is called on the card "Yagle, Lide. E." The Civil War Service Index (CMSR) - Union - Pennsylvania on fold3.com adds the information that he served in Company E. We have not found any further details of his service, including the date of his discharge. Two 1864 letters to his future wife, Eliza Ellen Boggs, reproduced in Patrick Foley's research notes, would seem to indicate that his service ended before 5 Sep 1864.

    According to Patrick Foley's research draft, he and his wife and their four children "moved to the Santa Clara Valley in California, where they purchased 19½ acres of land on Hostetter Road in the Berryessa district, northeast of San Jose." "In addition to the peaches, pears, apricots, and prunes in his orchard, he grew potatoes, squash, melons, tomatoes, corn, and carrots. A jar of his summer squash, preserved in solution, was exhibited at the 1893 World's Columbian Exhibition as part of the Santa Clara County exhibit."

    The ancestry.com database "California, Death and Burial Records from Select Counties, 1873-1987" includes an index card that lists two newspaper obituaries for Charles Henry Yagle:

    Yagle, Charles Henry
    DAILY HERALD
    June 13, 1896, p. 4, col. 4
    Even. News
    June 12, 1896, p. 4, col. 4

    We have not been able to directly view these obituaries, but from this index card we can conclude with reasonable safety that he died in Santa Clara County, which had both a Daily Herald and an Evening News in 1896.

    Charles married Eliza Ellen Boggs after 5 Oct 1864. Eliza (daughter of William Lee Boggs, Sr. and Catharine Thorpe) was born on 7 Jun 1843 in Kentucky; died on 28 Feb 1929 in Santa Clara County, California. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  4. 7.  Eliza Ellen Boggs was born on 7 Jun 1843 in Kentucky (daughter of William Lee Boggs, Sr. and Catharine Thorpe); died on 28 Feb 1929 in Santa Clara County, California.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1842, Kentucky
    • Baptised: 7 Jun 1843, Third Presbyterian Church, Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio
    • Alternate birth: Abt 1844

    Notes:

    The 1850 census says that her father was born in Pennsylvania and her mother in Virginia. The 1880 census says Pennsylvania and Maryland. The 1900 record for her daughters Hannah and Sarah (who were in the same household in San Jose) says their mother was born in Maryland. The 1910 census says Pennsylvania and Ohio.

    That her middle name was Ellen comes from the research notes of Patrick Foley, attributed to correspondence in 1997 with relative Ella Fahey, and is confirmed by her baptismal record, found by ASF.

    She appears to have frequently gone by the nickname Lide.

    From "Charles Henry Yagle" by Patrick Foley (citation details below):

    Eliza Yagle apparently remained on the ranch for several years after her husband's death. In April 1898 she purchased a wagon, suggesting an intention to continue running the operation. She made payments on the mortgage note on the property, and in 1898 she refinanced the property with a provision for supplemental borrowings--a clause she used within a few months of the refinance.

    Thereafter she moved into town. For a time her sons Charles H. Yagle, Jr. and John ("Jack") Yagle lived with her. Later, two of her grandchildren--Mildred and John Foley--lived with her. After Mildred's marriage in 1915, Grandma Yagle, as she was then known, moved with John to Fresno for a while. They returned to San Jose by 1920 and continued to live together while John went through high school and college.

    Notes:

    5 Oct 1864 is the date on the second of two love letters from Charles Henry Yagle to Eliza Ellen Boggs quoted in the research notes of Patrick Foley; in both letters it is absolutely clear that they are a courting couple, not yet married.

    Children:
    1. 3. Elizabeth Lee "Bessie" Yagle was born on 5 Jun 1878 in Allegheny, Allegheny, Pennsylvania; died on 31 May 1952 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.
    2. Charles Henry Yagle, Jr. was born before 31 May 1884.


Generation: 4

  1. 8.  William Foley was born in in of Cahersiveen, Kerry, Ireland.

    Notes:

    Cahersiveen, in Kerry, is alternately spelled Cahirciveen or Caherciveen; in Irish, Cathair Saidhbhín, meaning "little Sadhbh's stone ringfort."

    It is where the first shots of the Fenian Rising were fired in 1867. A village of only slightly more than a thousand people in 2016, it is notable for its disproportionately large Catholic church, the only one in Ireland named after a layperson, the crusader for Catholic emancipation Daniel O'Connell (1775-1847) who was born in Cahersiveen.

    Cahersiveen is also given by Patrick O'Brian as the childhood home of his novels' co-protagonist Stephen Maturin. From Post Captain (1972):

    At present two Highlanders were talking slowly to an Irishman in Gaelic...as he lay there on his stomach to ease his flayed back. "I follow them best when I do not attend at all," observed Stephen, "it is the child in long clothes that understands, myself in Cahirciveen."

    William married Catherine. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Catherine
    Children:
    1. 4. John Foley was born about 1835 in Cahersiveen, Kerry, Ireland; died on 8 Oct 1915 in Santa Clara County, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

  3. 10.  Jacob Fleming

    Jacob married Sabina Caveny. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  4. 11.  Sabina Caveny
    Children:
    1. 5. Honora Fleming was born in 1839 in Ireland; died on 25 Nov 1935 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.

  5. 14.  William Lee Boggs, Sr. was born about 1815 in Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania; died on 15 Oct 1877 in Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania; was buried in Highwood Cemetery, Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1795

    Notes:

    That his name was William comes from Patrick Foley's research notes, attributed to an inscription in a copy of a book (The Great Rosy Diamond by Ann Augusta Carter; Boston: Phillips, Sampson, and Company, 1856) owned by his daughter Eliza Boggs. The inscription, presumably written by William himself, reads:

    Eliza Bogg
    pecented by her
    father William Bogg
    Decm. 25th 1859

    According to the 1850 census, taken in Cincinnati, ward 2, he was a paperhanger. The 1860 census, taken just across the Ohio in Covington, Kentucky calls him a "tinner." The 1850 census calls him "Wm. L."; the 1860, "Lee." That these are the same man, despite the variance in age, is indicated by the correlation in the ages and the birth states of several of the listed children.

    In the 1870 census, he appears to be back in his birth state of Pennsylvania, in Allegheny, still a tinner, still with multiple household members whose ages roughly correlate with earlier censuses. He also appears as a tinner in the 1864, 1865, 1867, 1872, 1873, 1874, and 1875 Pittsburgh city directories. We doubt that he is the William Lee Boggs who appears in the 1868 and 1869 Pittsburgh city directories as a grocer. This other William Lee Boggs is possibly the William L Boggs who appears in the 1850 census as a merchant, and the 1860 census as a grocer, both times in Philadelphia with a household entirely dissimilar to that of our William Lee Boggs. Possibly this grocer is also the William Boggs whose will was probated in Beaver County, just northwest of Pittsburgh, on 10 Jul 1877.

    The 1850 census says that our William Lee Boggs was born around 1795; the 1860 and 1870 censuses, around 1815. Given his marriage in 1835 and the fact that his oldest child in the 1850 census is 14, a birthdate around 1815 seems more plausible, unless this was his second family and he had no children from the first one who were still minors by 1850.

    We're reasonably confident that the "William Lee Boggs, Sr." described on the Find a Grave page cited here is indeed the same man as the father of Eliza Ellen Boggs. First, our William Lee Boggs did indeed have a son William Lee Boggs Jr. Second, the one child linked from this Find a Grave page is a daughter Hannah Maria (Boggs) Jones, born 11 Dec 1837 in Cincinnati, who is well-documented elsewhere as a daughter of our William Lee and Catharine Boggs.

    It's notable that in addition to daughter Eliza Ellen Boggs, two other daughters of William Lee and Catharine Boggs wound up in San Jose: the aforementioned Hannah Maria (Boggs) Jones, and Sarah Jane Boggs.

    He consistently appears in census records of his children as having been born in Pennsylvania, save for the 1920 record of his daughter Hannah which places his birthplace in Ohio.

    William married Catharine Thorpe on 15 May 1835 in Hamilton County, Ohio. Catharine (daughter of Alanson Thorpe and Hannah) was born about 1815 in Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio; died on 29 Jul 1855 in Covington, Kenton, Kentucky. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  6. 15.  Catharine Thorpe was born about 1815 in Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio (daughter of Alanson Thorpe and Hannah); died on 29 Jul 1855 in Covington, Kenton, Kentucky.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: Abt 1815, Virginia
    • Alternate death: Between 1850 and 1860

    Notes:

    Establishing the wife of William Lee Boggs as Catherine Thorpe:

    The birth record for her daughter Mabel, born 30 May 1853 in Kenton County, Kentucky (just across the river from Cincinnati), gives the child's parents as "Wm. & Catharine Boggs" and records "Maiden Name of Mother" as "Catharine Thorpe." On the register of births the child is shown as "no name", but a child of approximately correct age appears on the 1860 census as "May Belle", age 6, born in Kentucky, and on the 1870 census as "Mabel", age 15, born in Kentucky.

    The Pennsylvania death certificate for Margaret Littell, born 15 Oct 1849, died in Raccoon Township, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, 9 Sep 1932, gives her father's name as Wm. Boggs and her mother's as Catherine Thorpe. Margaret Boggs's second (or, according to some, third) marriage was to John Robinson Littell. (Margaret Boggs's baptism appears on the same Third Presbyterian Church, Cincinnati register as that of all her siblings save for Mabel.)

    Catherine is shown as the wife of William Lee Boggs in the 1850 census; she is no longer present in his household in the 1860 census; and a Kentucky record exists for the death in Covington on 29 Jul 1855 of Catherine Boggs, 40, married, born in Cincinnati, parents named as Alanson and Hannah Throp. So it would seem clear that her birth name was Thorpe/Thorp/Throp, etc.

    It should be pointed out that though the abovementioned record of her death places her birth in Cincinnati, and the 1920 census record of her daughter Hannah agrees that she was born in Ohio, other census records of her children vary considerably on the question of her birthplace:

    1880 Margaret - Kentucky
    1880 Eliza - Maryland
    1900 Hannah - Maryland
    1900 Sarah - Maryland (same household as above)

    Additionally, her own 1850 census record has her born about 1815 in Virginia.

    Children:
    1. Sarah Jane Boggs was born on 15 Mar 1835; died on 30 Apr 1915 in Santa Clara, Santa Clara, California.
    2. Hannah Maria Boggs was born on 11 Dec 1837 in Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio; died on 5 Mar 1922 in San Jose, Santa Clara, California; was buried on 6 Mar 1922 in Oak Hill Memorial Park, San Jose, Santa Clara, California.
    3. Catherine Andrew Boggs was born on 5 Jan 1840 in Ohio.
    4. 7. Eliza Ellen Boggs was born on 7 Jun 1843 in Kentucky; died on 28 Feb 1929 in Santa Clara County, California.
    5. William Lee Boggs, Jr. was born on 13 Nov 1845 in Covington, Kenton, Kentucky; died on 21 May 1913 in Pittsburgh, Allegheny, Pennsylvania; was buried in Mars Cemetery, Mars, Butler, Pennsylvania.
    6. Margaret Sharon Boggs was born on 15 Oct 1849 in Kentucky; died on 9 Sep 1932 in Raccoon Township, Beaver, Pennsylvania; was buried on 11 Sep 1932 in Mars Cemetery, Mars, Butler, Pennsylvania.
    7. Mabel Boggs was born on 30 May 1853 in Kenton County, Kentucky.
