Event Date Place Description Sources
Birth October 3, 1845 County Down, Ireland   1a 2
General

I do not remember the source for the exact date of Ann Cunningham's birth. It may have been Nan Gallagher's research. Ann was 28 when she arrived in the US, so Oct 3, 1845 would fit.

Residence March 1, 1865 Ballygowan Townland, Kilkeel Civil Parish, County Down, Ireland Ballygowan Townland 3 4
General

Ann was living in Ballygowan when she married. Her occupation was a sewer (or seamstress.) Her father James was a farmer. (Source: transcribed marriage record online, but the website is now password protected.)

She may not have been living at home when she was married. There is a James Cunningham, farmer, on Griffith's Valuation of Ballymadeerfy, but the James Cunningham in Ballygowan was a publican or tavern keeper. She may have been from Ballymadeerfy originally herself, as was her husband.

birth of child (Mother) February 23, 1866 Ballygowan Townland, Kilkeel Civil Parish, County Down, Ireland   5a
birth of child (Mother) July 29, 1870 Toxteth Park, Liverpool, Lancashire, England 11 Court, Stanhope Street 6a
Event Note

Edward and Anna's son William was born at 11 Court, Stanhope Street, Toxteth Park, Liverpool, on July 29, 1870. Anna was of that address.

They were not enumerated at that address on 2 April 1871 when the 1871 Census of England was taken. I browsed the enumeration district for the address:
Civil Parish: Toxteth Park, City: Liverpool, Minicipal Ward: North Toxteth, Lancashire, Ecclesiastical District: Holy Trinity, Enumeration District 3
Stanhope Street, 11 Court

Residence July 1871 England England 1a
General

Edward and Anna's son Will was born July 1871 in Liverpool, England. I did not find the family on the 1871 Census in Liverpool.

Immigration April 15, 1872 New York, New York, United States   7a
General

Ann, age 28, arrived in the United States on April 15 1872, at the Port of New York, aboard the "City of New York" which had left from Liverpool and Queenstown. With her were her daughter Mary, age 5, and son William, age 1. She is listed as "wife" but I can't find her husband on this ship.

Residence August 9, 1878 Newburgh, Cuyahoga County, Ohio, United States Meech Street, Newburgh 8
General

When their daughter Helen "Nell" was born on August 9, 1878, the Rodgers were living "near city limits, Meech Street." The record was from the Board of Health of the City of Cleveland. Meech St. is in the Newburgh section of Cleveland, so it must have been near the boundary with Newburgh City at the time.

on the other hand, there is this record that says she was born in Newburgh
