There is a family tree that has Annie & Walter.  It also has Agnes marrying Nelson Constine and dying on 31 Mar. 1941 per a Lawrence city directory.  It says Agnes & Nelson had daughter Myrtle Constine 1905-1992, who married Frank Bunting 1903-1969 and stayed in Lawrence, Mass.

Haven't found Agnes' marriage yet.  One record (don't remember which one), shows Sweeney (close enough, eh?)  :) for her last name.

Myrtle's birth record has Agnes' surname as Sweeney, but Agnes is McWeeney on Myrtle's marriage record - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:FLCS-3X7

The 1932 Lawrence city directory says Amelia McWeeny, widow of James, died 18 Dec. 1930.  The Massachusetts death index says Amelia McWeeny, nee Hasland, died in 1930 in Lawrence.

Wow! The Rootschat community never ceases to amaze me! One of the major discoveries there is James's record for Naturalization - I knew he was from Leitrim, but didn't know it was Carrick, so hopefully that will take me one step closer to tracing him and his ancestors in Ireland!
And I'm very glad to see that it looks like his 3 youngest children went with him, and that they seem to have grown up and married in America.

I shall spend some time looking through all these links and making notes, but thank you so much to all of you! :)

You're welcome.

The Massachusetts death index has Annie Dunlap, nee McWeeney, with a death in 1935 in Lawrence.
