Michael j Kennedy, monivea, galway
« on: Monday 15 June 20 15:34 BST (UK) »
Hello,
I'm trying to find information on Michael James Kennedy from Monivea Co Galway Ireland. 16th of April 1888 dob. So far we have traced him from Liverpool, England to Albany, New york. Hes draft registration was in Niagara Falls 1917/1918 but after that noone heard from him. His mother was Mary Elizabeth  Newell and his father was John Francis Kennedy. And information would be greatly appreciated

Looking at the earlier post (https://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=668429.0) and the information on the draft registration card, it may be a long shot but could be possible there could be a mention of him in his company's employee records:
https://historicpittsburgh.org/islandora/object/pitt:US-QQS-mss282/viewer#idp8730160

"Series IV:  Employee Records, 
Scope and Content Notes

These records contain correspondence, reports, manuals, legal materials, and other sundry items. This series is an arbitrary one created by the archivist to combine documents relating to labor relations, salary, health, and safety that Alcoa had gathered in its offices. There is little documentation of specific employees or time sheets; rather there is an abundant amount of information pertaining to the labor operation of mills.

Arrangement
The Employee Records are housed in 5 archival boxes and arranged alphabetically in two subseries with general files arranged to the front."
