Mary Elizabeth "Lizzie" Donahue/Donahoe b.1859

I am searching for Mary Elizabeth Donahue (Donahoe). Since I do not have any marriage information, the search for her has been long and difficult.

Mary Elizabeth was called Lizzie by her siblings. Her parents were Michael (1824-1895) and Mary Ann Kelly (1832-1899) Donahue. Michael was born in Ireland and Mary Ann was born in Buffalo, NY. Her siblings were Thomas, Margaret, Catherine, James P., Anna, John, Teresa, Joseph M. and Esther Genevieve (called Jennie).

Lizzie was born in Cherry Township, Sullivan County, Pennsylvania about 1859. She remained there with her family through the time of the 1870 census (11 yrs. old). In 1874-75 her family moved to Luzerne County, Pennsylvania near Pittston. In 1880, Lizzie was not with the family in Pittston.

Family lore states that Lizzie "moved to Nebraska." It is known that she was alive in 1896 by reference in an old family letter. Other than that one mention, nothing has been found regarding her wherabouts.

Any clue would be greatly appreciated.
