[Merged with Lineage 11-21, 10feb2004, per
update from Susan McBrien]
Frederick McBrien of USA married Elizabeth Doyle of Auburn NY in the early 1900s. They had five sons:
James Victor McBrien and Grace Manship were the parents of.
Avonia Thress (firstname.lastname@example.org, 22 August 2000) is researching a William McBryan(t), born circa 1800 in (?) North Carolina. William married Nancy Hatcher about 1820. They lived in the Wear's Cove area of Sevier County, Tenessee.
The McBriant family originated from North Carolina and later moved to Bradley County, Tennessee. The McBriant Farm is still located in Chatata Valley in Charleston,Tennessee. Richard and Elizabeth McBryant/McBriant (or even McBrant) were the parents of (order not known) :
In 1973 Gary and Alice McBrien
moved to Eldridge, Iowa; they later divorced. Both re-married, Gary to Joyce
Dubuque, the great great grandaughter of Dubuque, Iowa's namesake.
Christopher McBrien < email@example.com, 2001 and 2003 > would like to know more about the Lansing McBriens.
Research in this Lineage was initiated by an eMail from Kristen McBrien (11 January 2013), grand-daughter of Robert McBrien. Much of the structure is based on sometimes contrary census returns.
New York residents John Depew McBrien, born in New York on 10 August 1844, and his wife Evalina Cocks, born 1857, a daughter of New York baker JOHN T COCKS and his wife CORNELIA M —, were the parents of four children (two alive in 1892) including:
Evalina's father JOHN T COCKS (born in New York; father born in New York and mother in England) was a baker and is listed in New York trade directories from 1850 and in the US census from 1 June 1860. He and CORNELIA had eight children including: John T Cocks (born c1847), Eliza Cocks (born c1849), Charles Cocks (born c1854), Eveline Cocks (born c1854), George Cocks (born c1858) and Lillian Cocks (born c1860).
The U.S. Federal Census Non-Population Schedules [Industry], I June 1850 for Williamsburg, Kings, New York has John Cocks, Baker, 5,000, 425 barrels flour, 25 ton coal, 2,500/125, Hand, 3, 80, 130,000 loaves, Breads, $18,000. The census enumerated 3 September 1850 of free inhabitants of the village of Williamsburgh, Kings County, New York shews John T Cocks (24, baker), Cornelia M Cocks (21), John T Cocks (jnr., 2) with Alice Grant (21, born Ireland) and Chas Latz (36, born Germany). The census enumerated 11 June 1860 at Williamsburgh in the 1st District 13th Ward, Brooklyn, Kings County, New York shews John T (32, baker, personal estate valued at $250), Cornelia M (31), John jnr. (12), Eliza C (10), Charles (5), Emeline (5) and George (1). The census enumerated 11 August 1870 at Williamsburgh in the 13th Ward, Kings County, New York lists John T (42, baker, personal estate valued at $4,000), Cornelia M (40), Eliza Cocks (19), Charles Cocks (17), Evaline Cocks (13), George Cocks (11) and Lillian Cocks (9) with Hellen Dovons (20, servant, born Ireland). The census enumerated 1 June 1880 in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York has John (54, baker, father born England, mother born NY), Cornelia (51, keeping house), Eliza (28), Charles (26), Eveline (23) and George (21, baker) and Lillie (19), with Jane O'Grady (50, servant, born Ireland). The 31 May 1881 Schedule of Manufacturers for Brooklyn – Bakers, Bread and Cake – lists John T Cocks employing 4 employees [14-hour day, total annual wages $2,496], using $11,294 worth of materials including 1,300 barrels of flour to produce goods valued at $18,200. The 1882 New York State census has John T Cocks (65, baker), Cornelia M (62), Charles (36, baker) and Lillian (30) in the 18th election district, 13th Ward, Brooklyn, Kings County [37 and Grand street]. Most of the 1890 census was lost in a fire. The 1900 census shews John T Cocks (74, born May 1826, married [52 years, with 8 issue, 5 still living, born in New York, parents born in England) at the residence of his daughter Evalena.
The 1900 census has Alfred McBrien (nephew, 15, born August 1885, clerk, single, born New York, parents born in Ireland) resident at the household of Robert D McBrien. Alfred's subsequent movements are uncertain to this author at this time, but it is possible that he was the Alfred McBrien born about August 1894 [the 1910 census return says his parents were born “Ire. English” [could that be Northern Ireland?], other returns say “New York”] and married Mildred Howard about 1907, daughter of NETTIE, and raised some six children while moving about the US east coast, working for the NY NH & H [New York, New Haven and Hartford] Railroad:
* ALFRED W McBRIEN (born c1907-09; in 1920 census),
* IRMA A McBRIEN (born c1908-09; in 1930 census),
* DOROTHY B McBRIEN (born c1910-12; in 1920 census),
* STANLEY E McBRIEN (born May 1915; in 1930 census),
* DORIS E McBRIEN (born c1919-20; in 1940 census) and
* MARIAN R McBRIEN (born c1923-25; in 1940 census).
Mildred and Alfred were listed in the 1940 census.
The name Depew possibly refers to Depew in upper north-west New York state, and could reflect an early settlement of this McBrien family in America. Depew village is about 15km east from Buffalo, Lake Erie and the US-Canadian border, across the boundary between the towns of Lancaster and Cheektowaga; it is about 50km south of Lake Ontario, along the northern opposite shore of which settled many several McBrien families from Inishmacsaint, County Fermanagh, Ireland. Depew was originally settled in 1808 by German German settler Appalos Hitchcock who purchased the land from the Cayugan tribe of Indians; The village was incorporated in 1894, it's name is derived from Chauncey Mitchell Depew, the President of the New York Central Railroad and former US Senator. There were at least two other male McBriens with their second Christian name as Depew:
- Arthur Depew McBrien (born New York circa 1874, son of Robert D and Adelaide) and
- Dean Depew McBrien (born 1892, Tecumseh, Nebraska; died 1964, Arkadelphia, Arkansas, son of Joseph [one source gave Jasper] Leonidas McBrien and Eva Forbes) rf lineage U-2.1.
In 1930 Edward (bricklayer, 36), Mary (37), Eleanor (15), Dolores (10) and his mother Evelyna (73) were living at 73 Morton St., Manhattan District 46; all were stated to have been born in New York.
Edward Creighton McBrien died on 25 April 1978. Mary A McBrien née Brewster died on 15 May 1979. They were buried in the Mount Repose Cemetery, Haverstraw, Rockland County, New York.
