NOTES:
As of June 02 2900 Mary Ann was living with her parents, Michael and Catherine at #36 Gifford Ave Pok.NY, She was a Single, White, Female who worked at a Factory. She could Read, Write and speak English

Mame = Mary Ann Whalen McGowan

During the 1880 Census McGowans lived at 41 Gifford Ave which is nearly diagnal from the Whalen family who resided at 36 Gifford Ave.

In 1880 while Frank McGowan lived at 41 Gifford Ave, which I believe was a two story two family house the family that shared the house was "Another Whalen Family"  To date I do not know of a connection between the Whalens who lived at 36 Gifford and the Whalen's who lived at 41 Gifford Ave.
John and Maria Whalen lived along side the Frank McGowan family. John who died about 1878 and Maria where also from Ireland and had a few teenage childen.  Maria at the age of 40 was a widow in 1880.  John and Maria had Mary, Hannah, Maggie and little John. All of the children where born in NY but the parents where born in Ireland. Maria was born about 1840 and John born in Ireland about 1835.

Just down the street from all these families was yet ANOTHER !! Whalen family.  Living at 29 Gifford Ave in 1880 was Daniel and Maggie Whalen along with their Daughter Julia.  Both parents and child where born in Ireland which would indicate that this family had to leave Ireland just about 1865.

STORY OF A REGIMENT
Gilbert Frederick.

Chapter XX.
 MUSTER ROLL FIFTY-SEVENTH NEW YORK

The following names are copied from the regimental muster rolls from the Adjutant-General's Office at Albany, N. Y. The list is thought to be as
complete as it can be made. The regiment was made up of companies recruited by Samuel K. Zook. Companies A, D, E, F & G were recruited mainly
in New York City. Company B, from the Utica area, Co. C from Kings & Lewis Counties, and Companies. H, I & K from DUTCHESS County.

Several known errors in the spelling of names, in dates and in the remarks have been corrected and though many undiscovered errors must still
remain yet the entire roll as printed here is the most perfect one in existence. The value of such a record is simply immeasurable. The name, age,
date of enlistment and rank, with the cause and date of discharge have been given. In order to crowd in as much information as possible many
abbreviations have been used, such as s for sergeant, c for corporal, m for musician, p for private, d for died, dis for disease, disc for discharged,
disab for disability, k for killed, pris for prisoner, w for wounded, m-o for mustered-out, res for resigned, tr for transferred, inv for invalid.
