Michael Gooley married Catherine Fitzgerald in Chicago, IL. They had 7 children but 2 died as infants. Michael and Catherine died in Chicago, IL just 3 weeks apart. A sister by the name of Mary Fitzgerald came over from Ireland to finish raising the children. I only know that she may have arrived about 1887 or 1888. Catherine and Mary's parent's names may have been Richard Fitzgerald and Catherine Hogan but I have no real proof of this. I don't have birthdates either. Ireland's depressing history is too destroyed to find much before 1901. My great grandparents show up in Chicago, IL in 1870 where they married.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
