I just received the following question via an ancestry.com message board:
Do you have an Andrew Reardon who married Mary Callaghan about 1889? Mary was originally from Ontario, Canada.
Not my line, but I’m helping my cousin on her Callaghans.
Anyone have any information on these individuals? Post a comment if you do. I know there are some Reardons out there in Clontarf…
Andrew was a son of Henry and Bridget Reardon who came to Minnesota from the Eastern U. S. in the early 1850s and settled in Credit River Township, Scott County. The first lumber yard and general store owner in Clontarf, Dominic McDermott, also came from Credit River. The family moved to Tara Township (near Clontarf) in 1876.
I don’t have anything on the Callaghans right now, but I remember the name from the plat maps. More to come…
