Residenceyes

Note: Can't find a Martin J McGrath in Omaha in 1900, and not one the right age in Iowa at that time. There is a pension request for a Martin J McGrath, invalided out of the infantry, of the correct age from an Iowa legion in 1900. This may or may not be our Martin J McGrath, but he did die at the age of 34 in 1904, which is unusually young.
