This census doesn't list place of birth, but the State census show the kids as US born. There are no birth certificates in NY prior to 1881, and I'd like to check to see how they spelled the name of the family on baptismal records. I'd be interested in tracking down any of these 3 kids (above) to see if they or their parents were listed as McGing or McGinn.

This federal census is clearly a "McGing" but the state census's below are showing a listing as "McGinn" and a BC for the kids would clarify that. Also, there are some discrepancies with the age of James, but everyone else matches pretty well, so I'm satisfied based on what I've found that this is a line of NY McGings who may very well have turned into McGinns in the period between 1860 and 1865. Don't know where Mom and Dad came from in Ireland, but since I can't find them in the 1855 State census, I suspect they emigrated late 1855-1856 since their oldest is 4 years and alleges a US birth. I have a number of possible Irish connections that would match up from famililes where the sons took off and were never seen in Ireland again. So the next steps are baptismal records for any of the 3 kids listed above and immigration records for mom and dad..

Now, here's some links to New York's state census's - scroll to the McGinns:
