The Sheridan family arrived in New York from Ireland with five children. With so many immigrants coming to the United States, work became scarce. The family went by boat down the Atlantic, around Florida, into the Gulf of Mexico to New Orleans. They then traveled up the Mississippi River. Railroad work was in great demand at this time. The railroad was being built between Atchison, KS and St. Joseph, MO. The family decided on St. Joseph probably because it was the larger of the two towns.
She was widowed three times. Her 1st husband Michael died in his 30's. She bought rental property in St. Joseph and ran a boarding house for Railroad workers. She also ran a grocery store out of her living room.
Bridget married Michael McLaughlin on 20 Sep 1868 in St. Joseph, Buchanan Co., MO. (Michael McLaughlin was born in 1841 in Ireland and died in 1877.)
