Searching for more information on Delia Kelly?
« on: Tuesday 29 March 11 18:01 BST (UK) »
Here is some of the information I found but I'm looking for more information on her birthdate, death date, who her parents were and if she had any siblings.

* Delia Kelly - est birthdate Dec 1879 in Ireland
* Immigrated to US in 1895
* Married Servander C Dow
* I believe resided in Amesbury, Massachusetts
* Had 5 children : Servander Dow Jr., Charles J Dow, Lillian Delia Dow, May Dow and Ethel M. Dow

any information on Delia's family would be sooo greatly appreciated it!

Thank you,
tammy

Kelly was the 2nd most common surname in Ireland so I think you would need a bit more detail to narrow down the correct family.
 
Do you know where in Ireland Delia was born and what her parents names were ?
Marriage and deaths certs, immigration records etc  in the USA often give useful details that would help..

Thank you Shane for the information. I tried some of them but none of them have a birth certificate that I can narrow down to either or it doesn't match birth years. I totally understand it being such a popular last name.

I found out from Ellis Island that she came over on the Britannic and arrived in the us 10/4/1895 at the age of 16 years old.  From the immigration sheet it said that she was a servant but nothing else recorded for parents.  It did say that the Britannic departured from Queenstown and Liverpool. Also mentions that her ethnicity is Ireland/Irish.  not sure if that helps.

If she was born in Dec.1879 then it's possible her birth was registered in the first quarter of 1880, hwoever, Delia is another version of Bridget (I've also seen Adelia used) so her birth might not have been registered as Delia.
