bullet  General Notes:

Listed in Chicago death records as Bertha Hagerty, birthplace was Germany. Spouse's name was James. Bertha's father's name was Frederick Berg. No image available on the death cert., no cemetery listed.

On the 1920 census, I see an unmarried Bertha Berg living in Ward 5 on S. Western Ave. It says she's 39 (so birth year of 1881, not 1875) and she works at an electric plant doing assembly. Born in Germany, naturalized in 1888.

Her mother may have been Johanna Berg. Check immigration records.

Bertha married James Herbert Hegarty, son of James Hegarty and Minnie W. Shannon. (James Herbert Hegarty was born on 4 Nov 1877 in New York, , NY, USA,11,38,150,337,338 died on 28 Jan 1929 in Chicago, Cook , IL, USA 40,335 and was buried on 31 Jan 1929 in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Chicago, Cook County, IL 1,38.)

bullet  Marriage Notes:

I've looked in for mention of this wedding in the InterOcean under the following spellings:
Hegarty, Heggarty, Heggerty, Hagerty, Haggerty, and Haggarty. There were plenty of Haggertys and Hagertys, and even some J.H. Hagertys and J.H. Haggertys, but none I thought were correct. There are no papers available for the Oswego, NY area.

Grandpa said they married w/in a year of Lillian's death but I can't find record of their marriage date. She appears to have been married before (IL Statewide Marriage Index).
