Patrick & Mary Kelley of Port Chester NY/Norwalk Conn
« on: Saturday 29 August 20 14:43 BST (UK) »
This is my 1st entry so I hope I do this correctly.
My great great grandfather Patrick Kelley born 1844 (US Census 1880) married Mary (     ) Kelley around 1868 and living in Port Chester NY. Relocated to Norwalk Conn 1886-1888 where his last two children were born. He died prior to the 1900 census.
Children are James (b-1869), Anna Elizabeth b-(1871), Ellen (b-1872) Catharine (b-1875), Matilde (b-1878), Thomas (b-1880), Julia (1882) (All born in NY), Elizabeth (b-1884), John (1886) (the last two born in Conn).

I found reference to Mary (Mahar) Kelley, spouse- "Patrick Kelley" but it looks like that may be in Australia.

Anna Kelley (my Great Grandmother) married Albert Reed Sterling 1898.

John Kelley died on Christmas Day 1905'ish when he fell through the ice and drown. (Connecticut)

Any help would be so appreciated. I can't think where else to look   :-[

Welcome to Rootschat Bill  :D

Could you tell us what it is that you wish to find out?  You have listed the parents and children and information on a couple of children but haven't made it clear what you are trying to do.  Go backwards with the parents?

I see from the 1880 census, assuming I have the correct one, that they are living in Port Chester as you stated.  Patrick and Mary were born in Ireland and Patrick is an iron moulder.

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

There were lots of Kellys/Kelleys in Norwalk, including several Patricks so just be careful not to muddle them all up (very easily done). I went to school with and worked with the family of this Patrick Kelley but the names and dates and stories I can remember don't fit with the family you are looking for.

Will have a look later if I can find your relatives as there should be lots online. Connecticut certificates ask for details of parents, including mother's maiden name. Years ago it was just a matter of going into the old Town Hall and asking to see records but Town Hall is now in what was the old High School and it's not as simple now-
