Oooooooh Amondg,
                                  I have just found that myself and from looking at a tree on ancestry they have a marriage of Daniel English to Mary McGraw 20 Jun 1868 New Brighton, Pennsylvania. I am going to get in contact with the tree owner and find out if they have a copy of the marriage. I can't seem to find any info on the internet so hopefully they might have the answers I need.
The children of Daniel are Mary 1869, Hannah "Annie" 1871, Daniel Francis 1873, Joseph Jeremiah 1876 and Thomas Patrick 1879. Interestingly there is no mention of Michael or John. I need to keep looking

Thanks for your help

Wow thanks for all that. So now I know that Daniel senior married Mary McGraw about 1869 ish as this would be his 2nd marriage. (parents to Daniel Junior) I found Daniel senior on the 1860 census

Daniel English 36
Ellen        "     33
Michael    "       5
John        "       1mt

All living in Baden Beaver Co, Pennsylvania.

CaroleW  thanks for your reply. I chose the other family for 2 reasons. I knew from other census that Daniels parents were both born in Ireland and 2ndly I knew Daniel jr had a brother, Thomas, who was born 1878 so the family I quoted ticked all the boxes.

Thank you for all your lookups RJ137. I have them pretty much covered on census I just need to find some more information on Daniel English senior now to tie things up.

Thanks a million to all that helped so far


         I have a Daniel English born abt 1873 in Pennsylvania.
I have found him on the 1880 census with parents Daniel 60 and Mary M 38 and siblings Mary 10, Annie 9, Daniel 5, Joseph 3, and Tom 1. They were living in Rocester Beaver County Pennsylvania.

 I can't find a birth record for Daniel in Pennsylvania or a marriage record (he married Nell Agnes Wilder abt 1895 poss in Missouri) or a death record and I can't find death records for his parents either. 
So if anyone could help find these dates for me I would much appreciate it.  Daniel senior connects to my grandmothers family but I am finding it hard to find the proof.
All the best

I was surprised at the WW2 draft card I thought He would have been too old. but it gave us a birth date. Unfortunately I couldn't find a baptism or birth record on for him. Then I found his naturalisation papers and on that he states his birth as 12 Apr 1877 and his wife was Hannah born about 1884. So this bunch weren't good on dates which just adds to the nightmare. He arrived in Boston 22 Apr 1906 on the ship cymric. I think I'm flogging a dead horse. I can't see any connection with this lot and mine.

Thanks for all your help but I think its time to put my headache away in a box for another day
All the best

Wow thanks guys you've been amazing. It looks like Hannah O'Leary isn't who I thought she was going to be as she has the wrong parents and I need to go and investigate both sets of parents now just to make sure there isn't a connection to my tree.

This has helped clear up one problem though.
You have both been amazing Millepede and RJ137 thanks a million

Hi all,
 I have just found some sketchy info on a Johanna/Hannah/Anna O'Leary who I think could quite possibly be my great Aunt.  I have her born 19 Aug 1881 in Kerry Ireland and I have found a petition for naturalization in Massachussettes in 1941 (age 60) and on this she states her husband as being Daniel O'Leary but it states her name as Hannah O'Leary as being her full, true and correct name and no other names given. It also states she was married 2 Jul 1911 in Boston. And names her 3 children, Anna 1912, Margaret 1916 and Jeremiah 1919. It also states that she arrived in the US on 14 May 1908 on the SS Ivernia.  After a lot of searching I finally found a census record for her and hubby and her 3 children in Quincy Ward 3, Norfolk County in 1920 but have found no other census. (or anything else remotely useful)
I found an entry on the US social security stating Anna O'Leary b. 19 Aug 1882 in Kerry and parents named as Michael O'Leary and Anna Walsh. Notes Oct 1942 name listed as Anna O'Leary. I can't find a proper death record for Johanna/Hannah/Anna or her husband Daniel and would dearly love any info the marriage cert could give me as Daniel could be a cousin I don't know about. Or they may not be connected or related. Either way I'd just like to know and I am hoping someone with better resources than me can help me sort them out.
Thanks to all that reads this and fingers crossed some bright spark finds something.

All the best

Ooooooh just wanted to add that her address on 15 Dec 1941 is 11 Richmond Street, Weymouth, Norfolk County, Massachusettes.

Muriel must have been living with Albert Tinsley and when she got word that husband Jesse died in 1940 she was then free to marry Albert. It all makes sense now. I couldn't have done this without help from my fellow rootschatters. Thanks everyone and thanks again Galium

Galium thank you soooooooooo much this makes complete sense to me. Jesse was the son of William Grindey and Hannah Cantrell and it ties them to the family I was researching. Thank you sooooooo much for taking the time and trouble to root out this information. This is precious info.

Whooo hooo thanks so much for helping clear up some of my messy tree.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

All the best

Yep that does add to the list of certs I need to see. I have other Jesse Grindeys in my tree and they all come from around the staffs/derby boarder towns. So it could be him or another branch. Thanks for trying.
