I was wondering if anyone has information on Mathew Halligan who married Honora Merrick. He was born in 1939 Ireland, came to the US in 1965 according to records and his obit that was found in the Sterling newspaper, and had numerous children including my great grandfather Hugh Matthew. According to his obit he was buried in St. Mary's, Tampico.

We think he may have been related to Hugh Halligan who also lived in LaSalle Cty and married Margaret Merrick in Ireland.

We are having a horrible time tracing him back to Ireland or learning about his wife who died young. Also we can't be 100% sure that he was related to Hugh even though we assume they were brothers because we found them coming to the US together with Margaret in 1866 and living together in 1870.

Any and all information is welcome and very appreciated!
