All are in Philadelphia:

Margaret 36, born Ireland
George 12
James 8
Eugeon (Eugene?) 5

George Donegan, born Aug 1867
Margret, born April 1872
Flora, born May 1892
Marie, born June 1896
Matthew, born Jan 1846, widowed father

Same family, shows Matthew immigrated 1860, born Ireland

Same family, except George is now widowed

Same family except without Matthew.

Some of these records you can look at for free at and For those you cannot see for free I suggest checking with your local libraries to see if they have Ancestry or Heritage Quest.

The Philadelphia marriages index database lists James Francis Donegan married to Laura Virginia Weikel in 1898:;p=collectionDetails

The Philadelphia death records database lists a Richard Donegan who died in 1909 whose parents were Matthew Donegan and Margaret Carberry. He may be the Richard listed in the 1880 census above:;p=collectionDetails

If you are still looking for more I suggest getting the death certificates and obituaries. If they died after Jan 1, 1906 you can try to get the death certificate directly from the PA Div. of Vital Records. The Philadelphia Free Library and the Historical Society of Pennsylvania may be able to help you with the obits. The Philadelphia Family History Center may also be able to help you.
