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.

https://ncsheriffs.org/about/history-of-the-sheriff
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)  »
Hello,
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)  »
Hello

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

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

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

Hello,

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 https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/190157695/walter-a_-o_donnell

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
