Re: Gahagan families in Rock or Dane CO WI

Am seeking info on Gahagan families in Rock or Dane CO WI. My gr-gr -grandmothers name was Betsy Gahagan.She was born in County Mayo IR in 1882. She ended up in NY where she married my gr-gr-grandfather John Devins. They moved to WI and settled in the Footville area. Their eldest son, John Devins JR (my gr-grandfather) married a Mary McCarthy Gahagan. She was a widow with twin sons, George Henry and Charles Francis Gahagan whom were born on August 22, 1887 in Oregon, WI. I am told that Marys decesed husband was a cousin of Betsy Gahagans. But that is all the info that I have. I have not been able to find any info on his name nor any info on the twins. I know that they both ended up in Beloit, WI and I have their dates of death. I found an obituary in the Janesville Gazette for a William Gahagan but I have no idea if it is Marys decesed husband. It is as follows. " William Gahagan died at his home in Oregon,Wis. and was brought to Janesville and buried in Mt. Olivet cemetery last Thursday. Decesed was the son of Michael Gahagan of this city. His death was very sudden. He went to bed in his usual health at night and before morning he was taken suddenly sick and died. Heart disease was supposed to be the cause of his death. " The date the obit appeares is April 6, 1889. I would like to know if this is Marys decesed husband. It sounds like it could be but I don't know for sure. If anyone has any info on any of the people mentioned I would appreciate the help. Thanks!!
