    Notes 
    • Francis Moran and Ann Galligan lost four of their five sons to illness and accident. Son Denis died at seven years of age of "softening of the brain" (presumably some sort of brain infection). Sons Thomas and Edward emigrated to North Dakota in 1878, along with their half-brother Francis (son of Francis Moran and his first wife Margaret Behan). In the autumn of 1887, Thomas and Edward learned that their father was very ill. On their way back from North Dakota to Canada to see their dying father, they met with a horrible accident in Chicago, where they were asphyxiated by gas. Both sons died on 4 October 1887, and their bodies were returned to Fitzroy to be buried at St. Michael's, Corkery. Son John went out to North Dakota to settle his brothers' affairs, and caught typhoid fever; he died in Fitzroy on 19 December 1887. Thus, even as the elderly Francis Moran was dying, he and his wife Ann Galligan lost three sons in the space of a couple of months. None of the remaining children, Michael, Ann Elizabeth and Margaret, ever married. Both Michael and Margaret died at St. Patrick's Orphanage and Asylum.
