Amondg, thanks for putting the family together. I think I found the missing child: Blanche, born 7 August 1878 in Pittsburg, father Thomas Keating, mother Annie Keating.

Yes I agree 6 years is a big difference in birth year but I keep coming back to the info Thomas gave himself. Thanks for finding the headstone :-)

Good idea about the church baptisms, although if it's the Thomas Keating I have, he probably emigrated by himself. I'm still looking for his emigration details. One that stands out is an arrival in New York on 2 August 1850 on the Kingston from Dublin. This Thomas Keating is described as a labourer (fits with census entries), aged 21.
