I am researching my family and found that my grandfather was previously married to an Ann Sheehan. Ann's parents I believe were Peter Sheehan and Elizabeth Daly from Mullingar. I believe Ann was born 8/20/1872 in Mullingar. My grandfather Patrick married Ann in NYCon 2/2/1896. I can't find any info about Ann's death. Any help would be appreciated.
