Seeking Information On: Mary A Spring [Clark - b. 1896 in S. Ireland d.9/10/1944
Posted by: April Driesse (ID *****5975) Date: November 24, 2012 at 07:44:23

I am seeking any information that may be known about my Great Great Great Grandmother.

My Maternal Line goes as follows:

Mary Clark [Welch/Walsh/Welsh] --- John Clark
Mary A Spring [Clark] ---- John Spring
Mary F. Caissie [Spring]
Rita Caissie (Ainsworth)

Marcel Caissie ----- (ancesters of herbert ainsworth unknown)
| |
Rita Caissie (Ainsworth) ----- Herbert Ainsworth
Rita Ainsworth---- Chris Driesse
April Driesse (Me)

So This is not confusing to anyone...

Herbert Ainsworth was married to Rita Caissie.
Rita Caissie's mother was Mary F. Caissie [Spring]
Mary F. Caissie [Springs] parents were Mary A. Spring [Clark] and John Spring.
Mary A. Spring [Clark] Parents were Mary Clark [Welch/Walsh/Welsh] and John Clark.

So what I am seeking is information on the Spring -- Clark -- Welch/Walsh/Welch line

Mary F. Caissie was born 3/7/1918 and died 6/1/1995. Can not find a record of marriage between she and Marcel.

I did, however, find a record of her on a NY Passenger List, from when she was 6 years old with the following information:

New York Passenger List
Name: Mary F Spring
Arrival Date: 12 May 1924
Birth Date: abt 1918
Birth Location: United States of America
Birth Location Other: Manchester, England
Age: 6
Gender: Female
Ethnicity/ Nationality: Irish
Port of Departure: Queenstown, Cobh
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: Lancastria

Mary A. Spring [Clark] was born in approx. 1896 in South Ireland. Died 9-10-1944. Married John Spring on 5/8/1917.

I found information on her husband, John Spring's emigration to the US:

Boston Passenger and Crew Lists, 1820-1943
Name: John Spring
Arrival Date: 17 May 1913
Age: 22
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1891
Gender: Male
Ethnic Background: Irish
Port of Departure: Queenstown, Ireland
Ship Name: Cymric
Port of Arrival: Boston, Massachusetts
Friend's Name: Jesse Spring
Last Residence: Ireland
Birthplace: Castlewaine, Ireland

I found the name of Mary A. Spring [Clark] parents on a marriage certificate.

The certificate lists her parents name as John Clark and Mary Walsh.

I could not find anything farther back.

Anything you can find, is appreciated. I intend on paying for a vital record search, but before I do that, figured I would give this some luck.
