Hello again blue, regarding your initial query re Nora, i am flummoxed chasing this lady?. What i do know is, she married Enrico Corti in 1902 Manhattan. fact. Family story is that soon after marriage Enrico dies. NORA comes home to abbeyleix. And returns once more to USA. CIRCA 1907   1912 and is not heard from again in ireland. 1910 US census showsa Nora Corti and a Mr Berlin together in ny. no show in census further up to and including 1940. Your nora of 1900 arrival in US is i think a different norah, she is from ballacolla, and ships manifest shows her sister Bridget paid her passage, anything i can do just contact me,
