See U.S. 1900,
CA, SF, E.D. 78, Sheet 9A, 3008 25th Street: The record also
reports John Gaffigans arrival in the U.S., 1867. The births of most
of the children are listed in the Call Index, an index of newspaper
announcements. The marriage is not listed, but given the age of the
oldest child, Arthur, it likely took place about 1879. The parents
appear in the California Death Index [CADI]: Margaret Gaffigan, d. 14
November 1915, SF, 57 {1858}; John Gaffigan, d. 18 July 1938, Contra
Costa, 85 {1853}. Most of the children can also be located:

Thomas Gaffigan [13, b. Scotland], John Gaffigan [11, b. Scotland] in
the household of James OConnell [40, b. Ireland, bookseller]. It is
possible that this is an early record of John. It is also possible
that these are the persons who arrived at New York, 1 July 1867,
aboard the Iowa, o/o Glasgow: Mary Goffigan [35, b. Ireland], Thomas
Goffigan [8, b. Ireland], John Goffigan [6, b. Ireland]. There are no
