Surnames: Seggerson, McCarthy, Sugrue
A death certificate recently received indicates that my great-grandgather's mother was Mary Seggerson, born in Caherciveen. She married Daniel McCarthy and their son John was born in 1860. It's great to add another generation to the family tree, but I have never heard of the Seggersons and this sounds like an odd name for Kerry, almost Scandinavian. I'm sure the notation about birth in Caherciveen is correct, however. Does anybody have knowledge of the name/family with this surname?
Thanks, Jennifer

Surnames: Segerson
Based on what I have been told over the years by family members, Segerson (or Sigerson) is a derivation of "Sigurd's son". Our ancestors were allegedly from Denmark and settled on the western coast of Ireland in Cahirciveen. There is actually a hotel/bar there called the "Sigerson Arms" which my parents have visited. Segerson is an unusual family name. Of course, we all think that we are descended from royalty. We are a relatively small family here in the United States, mostly centered in Indiana and Connecticut.

Thank you, thank you for digging out this old message! Your spelling as Sergerson matches the pronuciation that living descendants use - it was, however, spelled Seggerson on certain US records in the mid 20th century. The "Sergerson" family that I am researching married into the McCarthy family of Caherciveen, and a child of that union emigrated to Montana in 1890. That child was John McCarthy, who himself married Julia Sugrue of Caherciveen in Montana the same year. They evenutally settled in San Francisco. Some of the Sergerson "in-laws" also lived in San Francisco in the early 1900's. I am looking for this family as well.

Thanks again for the information.

Good luck to all researchers, Jennifer
