Edit profile to show place of migration

Hi - I am looking for information on Timothy Dolan b. abt 1818, d. abt 1840 married to Mary Donnelly b. abt 1820. They were from Roscommon. 

They had 3 sons, Francis b, 1836, Thomas b. 1837 and Michael b. 1838. Their son's families were born in the following areas: Creagh, Ballinasloe, Moore South. I'm hoping maybe their parents lived in the same area.  My great grandmother Anna Kelly married John Dolan b. abt 1863-1866, son of Thomas Dolan. Michael Dolan, Thomas' possible brother, Michael married a Catherine Kelly (hoping there may be a connection).

I have had no luck on the Irish Genealogy site, ancestry.com, or familysearch.org, continually finding no records.  I'm hoping someone here may have some insight.  My primary goal is to locate information on my great grandmother Anna Kelly b. abt 1865 to Patrick Kelly/Kelley with no record of a mother.  

Please leave a comment if you have any information and would like to get in touch.

Aug 1885 and immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts on the SS Pavonia and arrived in June 1886. Their first home in Boston was 38 Jamaica St, Jamaica Plain (Boston), MA.  They lived in Jamaica Plain most of their adult life.  I have been looking for more information on their families.  It sounds like we are cousins!  I can be reached at walsh.rr@comcast.net.
