Chronology of known 19th century Fagan births   Rows are color coded by family -- or rather by son's families. At least two of the Fagan daughters (Rose CARROLL and Ann SEAMAN) were said to have married. but I've been unable to follow their trails.
I've listed known civil registrations, which took place in Manhattan unless noted. Most of the early births were not registered with the city and were only accounted for in baptismal registers or in census. St. Stephen's Church on East 28th Street (Office at 142 E 29th) was the source of most of the known Baptismal information for Matthew's and Eugene's family. It was also the site of Edward's 1864 marriage (Laurence as sponsor).
