Wow, this is great. I don't know how to respond to individual reply's yet but there is so much good help posted already. One response indicates that Matilda tied to Louis. Last night my mother told me that there was a Mr. Louis that was taken in by the family and she thinks Matilda might have married him. I also know that Albert Reed Sterling (my Great grand father) married Anna "Loretta" Elizabeth Kelly.

I see a lot of other good tips and information as well. I am so glad I found this site! ;D

Thank you everyone!

Hi Girl Guide
Actually both Patrick and Mary were born in New York and all four of their parents were born in Ireland but immigrated to the states. I am trying to identify Patrick and Mary's parents.

I found a reference to Patrick Kelley and Mary (Mahar) with a daughter Ellen. The birth dates for all three line up https://www.familyhistory.bdm.qld.gov.au/details/5885f59d71f67ad16a76457558120aa225d0622fc597bfd379a8b93dbdaf675b
The only problem is that I found it on the Queensland Government site that makes me think its a similar family in Australia.

Hi. I had such a great response on my 1st post I thought I’d try my luck again. Last time though I did not give enough information. I hope this is not too much.
I am looking for my great (X2) grandparents “Kelly” of Port Chester NY/Norwalk Conn who are in the 1980 census link –
 
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:33SQ-GYBL-9HWL?i=47&cc=1417683&personaUrl=%2Fark%3A%2F61903%2F1%3A1%3AMZNN-1NY

They relocated to Norwalk Conn between 1882 and 1884.

We know a bit about the family after this but nothing from before this. We know Patrick and Mary were born in NY and all four of their parents were immigrants from Ireland. I have searched for weeks but have not been able to single out this Patrick from the other 4,000,000 (or so) Patrick Kelley’s.

I have found one potential lead but it comes from Queensland Gov site in Australia. This entry-

https://www.familyhistory.bdm.qld.gov.au/details/5885f59d71f67ad16a76457558120aa225d0622fc597bfd379a8b93dbdaf675b

Connects Patrick Kelley with Mary E Mahar with child Ellen Kelley b 1872 which matches with the Ellen in the 1980 census above. Only problem is I would think this implies they should be in “Australia” when I am looking in NY/Conn. However- I could find no information on Ellen after the 1880 census so perhaps she ended up in Australia?

I guess my question would be- Is anyone familiar with The Queensland Gov site and know if it would also have people in America? Or does any of the more experienced people here have any idea how I can single out Patrick and Mary? If her maiden name is in fact Mahar thats a help too.
Any help is greatly appriciated!

Thanks for all that Sandra. You helped confirm a lot of what my mother could remember and filled in some blanks too.
