My g grandfather John McHugh emigrated from Leitrim in 1852 to New York, then he initially settled in Danbury Connecticut, fought in the US Civil War, and then settled in Roxbury neighborhood of Boston.  His brother Patrick emigrated 1864, and died in New York city 1912, apparently single.  The other brother Edward stayed in Glebe his entire life.  I am not certain of the sibling connection between these 3, it is primarily based on all three having parents Edward McHugh and Ellen Tucker from Leitrim.  Thanks for your help!

http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Leitrim/Glenade/Glebe/655989/ is them once Census, 4 children, 3 living so who were the other 2?

Did they marry?
Are they on Census?
Did they have kids?
If they had kids, who did these marry?

Yes that is Edward the sibling in the 1911 Census.  He and Bridget Keaveny had 7 kids, 3 died as infants so maybe that gets to the 4 births listed on the census.  Patrick died at age 24, that gets down to 3 kids.  Mary Ann b. 1865 living with parents, single at age 47 in 1911, probably never married.  John b. 10 Aug 1868 I have no further information on.  Bridget b. 24 Aug 1883 married Patrick Diamond 06 Mar 1916 at Mullies RC church.  Children Mary Teresa Diamond b. 27 Jun 1918 at Manorhamilton workhouse and Bridget Diamond b. 22 Mar 1921 also at Manorhamilton workhouse.  I have no further record on Mary Teresa or Bridget Diamond.  Their mother Bridget McHugh Diamond d. 20 Feb 1930 in Manorhamilton Hospital.  That is all I have on this branch of the family at this time.  Looking for more, like what happened to John b. 1868?  Thanks!!

Interesting info and thanks!!  I am puzzling over this.  Seems the Patrick listed on 1911 census and on the gravestone is too old and also has Celia as a wife, not Bridget as my Patrick's wifes name is. 

Their homeland is so very close to my McHugh's, there must be a connection.  Thanks again.
