Finally located my GAHAGAN family in Austin City, Mower County, MN in 1900 census and received Calvary Cemetery records from the Mower County Historical Center today.

m. Mary GILLIGAN c. 1877, b. 1854 d. 27 Oct 1934
(both buried in Calvary Cemetery)
They had 8 children per the 1900 census and 8 living but only 7 listed:

2) Unknow GAHAGAN b. after 1880 and before 1900, not listed in 1900 census
3) Mary GAHAGAH b. Nov 1883 (born SD or MN)

7) William GAHAGAN b. Aug 1896 in MN
8) Glenn GAHAGAN b. Feb 1898
Have information on all of Mary's siblings, Bridget GILLIGAN WALSH, Ellen GILLIGAN DEVANEY (my great grandmother), Catherine (Kate) MCBRIDE, William P. GILLIGAN. Would like to find living relative that may have information on Mary's grandparents. Her parents were William P. and Ellen FITZPATRICK GILLIGAN. William is buried in Dell Rapids SD and Ellen is buried in Minneapolis MN.
Family history had all of the GILLIGANS in SD at one time but other than Ellen who married Thomas DEVANEY none of them could make it work and they went back to Austin MN.
