Marron Family History

This surname is of Irish origin being an Anglicized form of the Gaelic O Mearain i.e., 'descendant of Mearan', a personal name from 'mear' meaning 'lovely' or 'quick'. It is most certainly a sept of County Monaghan. Bearers of the name Marren, County Sligo are believed to have been part of the Ulster sept above. Recordings include on Elizabeth Marron, daughter of Eliza and Thomas, who was christened on March 24th at Downpatrick, Co. Down. John, son of Thomas and Catherine Mee Marron, was christened at Carrickmacross, Monaghan, on August 12th 1867.

Kevin Murray

My grandmother, Bridget Marron, was born approximately 1851 in County Monaghan, possibly Carrickmacros area but really not sure. Arrived in the US in 1869. Married John Murray in 1876 in Pittsburgh, PA. They moved to the San Francisco Bay area and had 2 sons, Bernard and John Joseph (known as Joe). Returned to Pittsburgh in 1883-1884 and had 2 more sons, James and Michael (a/k/a Francis/Frank). She died in 1922 in Pittsburgh. Possible her father's name was Bernard but again not sure. Hoping to find more specifically her birthplace and possible relatives.
