Looking for Dennis Kelly
« on: Friday 16 February 18 14:44 GMT (UK) »
Theres not much to go on. He was born in 1829 around the January to June time frame. He left for the US during the famine. Dennis never got married in Ireland. I think he came from a southern county. Ive been searching awhile, but since his name is Dennis Kelly its hard to narrow down. Maybe a new prospective will help me.

thank you hallmark,, looking up Dennis Kelly, results in 35  entries, you have the choice on each entry to view the typed transcription which I had hoped would give whereabouts in Ireland that they came from, but they don’t.  They do however have an occupation box a few carpenters were noticed, others farm labourers etc,
so you have a list with age.  I have attempted to reduce the entries to 12 of the 35 results by applying he should be  born 1829 +or- 2 years. i am not good at the maths, but you ‘thegreatpercy’will see the underlying attempt these are the 12 numbered entries scattered below.

Using the occupation on the US census1851 or 1861 us census you just might get a match. I think you are left with a brickwall sadly in Ireland unless you find a clue to location in us
goodluck onwards
