United States of America / Role of Sheriff in the context of Tammany Hall politics
« on: Wednesday 30 December 20 15:17 GMT (UK)  »
I have researched an ancestor who become Sheriff of New York County in 1897-99. He was connected with Tammany Hall and achieved this position with the help of Tammany Hall. I would like to understand the role of Sheriff in 1890's New York in the context of Tammany Hall politics but I am struggling to find something definitive.
Has a good overview but I'm still not 100% sure on the role of the Sheriff and what exactly my ancestor did DAY to DAY.

I know this is not strictly genealogical but knowing more about the person (not just names and dates) is what real genealogy is as far as I'm concerned!

Thank you.

Scotland / William Shaughnesy and family
« on: Wednesday 09 December 20 09:45 GMT (UK)  »
I am trying to find any info on Catherine Shaughnesy born abt 1861 in Scotland. Parents William Shaughnesy and Johanna O'Donnell. I do not know what area of Scotland.

Her sister may also have been born in Scotland - Frances abt 1863

I have taken this info from the 1875 New York and 1880 USA Census.

William and Johanna would have been born in Ireland.

If I could find anything on them in Scotland it would be great.

United States of America / Banfield
« on: Monday 12 October 20 11:17 BST (UK)  »

For a while now I have been trying to find the parents of a particular "Allan" with the surname "Banfield" who died 2012 in Oregon. I think his middle name was "F". He was probably born 1947 again in Oregon.

I have created a tree on ancestry etc but to no real benefit. Maybe his father was named Frank but I dont have anything concrete.

If I got his parents names then I should be able to trace back and find the connection to one of my lines.

Any help much appreciated!

Thank you

US Completed Requests / Mrs. Ellard, Springfield MA
« on: Thursday 03 September 20 15:36 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to find more information on a Mrs Ellard who lived at 147 hancock street springfield as per a Massachusetts, Passenger and Crew List in 1905 where she is listed as the destination for a James Geary (who is no.20 on the page).

England / Dennehy / Les lie married Kent 1925
« on: Tuesday 28 April 20 14:51 BST (UK)  »

I am looking for the family of Patrick Dennehy born 1937 in Dartford, Kent. If I have the right Patrick he married Elena Perlorca 1956.

From a search I came across the marriage of a Patrick Dennehy and Catherine Leslie in 1925, my thinking is these could be Patricks parents. I would like to confirm some way that I have the right parents and then maybe I can get back further to Ireland.

Many thanks.

United States of America / Margaret Keating Acheson
« on: Saturday 25 April 20 23:07 BST (UK)  »
I am looking to confirm and find the parents of Margaret Ann Keating who married Frederick I. Acheson. They lived in San Diego, California. From a census it says they married about 1889.
They had 4 children - Ira, Helen, Thomas and Lucina.
I am only interested in her parents and back.

There is a tentative "ancestry hint" death of 25 May 1942 San Diego
There is also a tentative birth hint of 31 Jul 1867. Parents Patrick Keating and Ellen Carroll.

I am looking to discover where either Patrick Keating or his wife Ellen Carroll originally came from in Ireland. I strongly presume one of them (or their parents) came from somewhere around Clonmel, Tipperary.

Any hints welcome. Thank you very much

United States of America / Walter O'Donnell, NY
« on: Saturday 11 April 20 15:34 BST (UK)  »

I am looking for the parents of Walter O'Donnell born (I think) 1902, died 1976 in Orange County, New York. This is likely him

His wife was Mary Hallisey married 1931.

He was put up for adoption along with possibly 10 siblings.

I have been told that his parents *might* be John O'donnell & Katie O'Brien. I would like to confirm this if possible.

Thank you for your help.

I am not interested in his children and forward (already have that info), only his parents and back! Thanks
