Margaret M. Cunnane b. 1897

Classification: Query
Surnames: Cunnane, O'Connor
I'm looking for info on my great grandmother. Her gravestone says she was born in 1897, but US Census information says she was 30 in 1930 and 39 in 1940. so 1897 might be a little off. The 1930 US Census says she immigrated to the USA in 1916. I know she lived in Cambridge, MA once she married my great grandfather Thomas J O'Connor. She passed away in 1984 in Brighton, MA.

My aunts say she was from County Clare. When I search the Irish Census in 1911, the only Margaret Cunnanes that are anywhere near her age are in Sligo or Galway. In the 1901 Census there are also some matches in Mayo County. The Mayo one looks like it could be more promising because I was also able to find a Margaret Cunnane that came to the USA in NY in 1916. The passenger list on the St. Louis says she was from Ballyhaunis, Bekan Ireland. I would have assumed my great grandmother would have come to Boston, but I guess NY is a possibility as well. There is another Margaret Cunnane who came on the St. Paul ship in 1916 and it lists her age as 20.

Her daughter Mary K O'Connor (my grandmother) was born in May 1921, so I think Margaret would have gotten married in 1920 at the earliest? I cant find a record of that either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
