In Reply to: George Samuel Passmore by Christine Mitchell of 837

Christine I am related to Ida O'Neill married to George Samuel Passmore. George Married Ida in the Marble Collegiate Church on 29th. Street in New York City. Don't know how she met George as Ida and her mother Martha lived here in Bayonne, New Jersey when her father Eugene{Owen} died in 1893. Eugene and Owen are the same name. Her father was a successful baker who operated two shops at the time of his death. He was born in County Laois in the town of Fallybeg, the son of James O'Neill and Elizabeth Salmon. They came with their six children in 1852 and settled in Bayonne. I have George and Ida on the 1930 census living in North Plainfield, New Jersey at 116 Norwood Avenue. The home was owned by George. He must have been quite successful as he was listed as a stock broker on the stock exchange. Probably Wall Street as Plainfield was a town with many commuters to New York. Ida's mother Martha was still living with them and was 79 years old. I did see the marriage certificate for George and Ida the last time I was in the archives in New York City. After the holidays I will be going back in to the city if you want me to get a copy of the marriage record let me know. On all of the records it is listed that Ida was born in Newburgh, New Jersey but Newburgh is actually New York. Perhaps the marriage record was misread. I will check because all of the census records show she was born in New York. I notice on the 1930 census George was naturalized as a citizen in 1917. At this time they were living in New York so it would be easy for me to get a copy of his citizenship papers when I am in the archives if you want. Do you have any idea of the death date for George or Ida? If we had the dates I could find the burial site. George and Ida did not have any children and Ida was the only child of Eugene(Owen) and Martha. Eugene and Martha were married in the Catholic Church in Plainfield in 1876. Hope this helps you. Let me hear from you. Robert Ryan
