GARR - Bucks Co, PA & Mercer, Co, NJ

Seeking information on the following three individuals:

1) Ann GARR married Michael Curran in October 1863 (where is not known). They settled in Yardley, Bucks Co, PA. They had four children: Mary Ann (born July 28, 1864 - died December 13, 1868); Thomas (August 28, 1866); Sarah (December 24, 1868) and Catherine (February 5, 1872). Ann died November 3, 1892 in Yardley and is buried in St. Andrew's Cemetery in Newtown, PA.

2) Catherine GARR married John Burns (Byrne) in Carbury Co Kildare, Ireland in 1842. She followed John to the US about 1856. She had at least 9 children: Thomas (September 1842); Patrick (December 1844); Margaret (February 1847); John (July 1852); Annie (May 1854); James (April 1858); William (June 1859); Edward (September 1861) and Kathryn (October 1864). The last four were born in the US. catherine died in Newtown, Bucks Co, PA on August 1, 1902. She was buried in St. Mark's Cemetery, Bristol, PA.

Note: Irish baptismal registers list the name as Gagher or Garigher rather than Garr. The name was certainly anglicized in the US.

3) Patrick GARR married Julia ?. The 1870 Census enumerates them and two children (Catherine born c. 1868) and Anne (born c. 1870). They were living in Lower Makefield Township, Bucks Co, PA (this Twp. surrounds Yardley). They are not listed again in PA although a Patrick is listed in the 1881 and 1887 Trenton (Mercer Co) diretcories living in a suburb of Chambersburg. He died in 1887 although no death certificate has been located. He was buried in Our Lady of Lordes Cemetery.

There is no firm indication that Catherine and Ann were related to Patrick. The close proximity of where they settled suggests a relationship, albeit, a circumstantial one.

Any help or suggestions will be most appreciated.
