Doire:

Do you already have their information from census returns (while in the States)?  If not, may I ask their dates of birth, please?

I see Robert and James on the 1920 census, but perhaps you already have that information?

Hello Lisa and thanks for replying to my request.

The information that these 3 brothers went to San Francisco came from a change in ownership of land to their brother Patrick.  I do not have any information of the Census records in the States.  I do not know James or Michael's year of birth but I found Rodger's bapt date which is June 5, 1864.  I assume around 1860's or early 1870's for James and Michael's birth!!

Regards,
DoireM

Living next door to James Margey is:
Roger Margey, age 52 years, immigrated 1888, born Ireland as were parents, Marine Fireman, Ship Co.
Wife, Mary, immigrated 1888, born Ireland as were parents, no occupation.
Boarder, John McDeid?, age 53, immigrated 1888, born Ireland as were parents, Marine Fireman, Ship Co.

Actually, looking at the house number, they could have been living in the same house.  It looks like James lived at 236B? and Roger was 236.  I believe the street was 27th.  I believe it was "Street" (rather than Avenue).
