You suggest Mary's birthplace was either Eire or New York.

Do you know roughly when she went to the US? As a child with her whole family? Or later in life?


Angela Report 28 Sep 2016 17:17

Eringobragh1916 Report 28 Sep 2016 17:34

Angela...I am still trying to understand who it is your after looking for....

You have a Mary Fitzgerald b NY 1908 her bros. were Paddy Tommy Eliz. Eily Mai.

Were the bros and sister's also born NY.
Did the family return to Ireland (Co Kerry)
Do you know the names of the Fitzgerald Parents and what about the Galvins..??

Are you certain Eily Mai married Tommy and not Joe Galvin....?


Angela Report 28 Sep 2016 18:44

EILY MAI married Joe galvin children were pj tommy patricia and Mary... my grandmother died in 1984 in Maidenhead but was born in new York her siblings were born in Co kerry so I guess they returned after sometime to Ireland..


Eringobragh1916 Report 28 Sep 2016 18:56


Given you had an address for Dromkeen Causeway Co.Kerry this would likely be the deaths and Burials of Eily Mai and Joe...don't know if you already have the details....

Causeway cemetery

Joe Galvin date of death June 19 1987 (Married) aged 62
Eily Mai Galvin d.o.d June 24 1996 (Widow) age given

I'm not sure i'm following this- who is your Grandmother that died in 1984?


Eringobragh1916 Report 28 Sep 2016 19:06

Evening AustinQ....

Still don't know if I am going back forward or sideways with this one...!!

Can you check to see if there is as burial for a Patrick Galvin and Ellen Galvin (nee Riordan) I believe they may have been Joe's parents...Dromkeen East Causeway.
My records only go from 1974


Eringobragh1916 Report 28 Sep 2016 19:08

AustinQ...My guess it is Mary Theresa Fitzgerald b 1908 NY.


AustinQ Report 28 Sep 2016 19:21

The record that I posted above is from Ancestry- despite being labelled 1898- 2010, the link is from the same place I suspect you used (the Galvins showing are the ones you posted:

The only Fitzgerald registered:

Causeway Fitzgerald Jermiagh Jerry Dromkeen East Causeway 04/01/2008


Eringobragh1916 Report 28 Sep 2016 19:32
