Ok I have a feeling we have some connected family. My 3rd great uncle, John D'Arcy from Killenadeema in Galway maried Mary Finnerty from Ballymurray in Galway in 1889 in Loughrea. They never immigrated but most of John's siblings did. His sister Mary Darcy married John O'Grady from Loughrea, my second great-grandparents. Most all the O'Grady and Darcy siblings emigrated and settled in Bayonne and Elizabeth, New Jersey where family still remains. Not sure if can figure out the connection there but also John's sister Anne O'Grady married John Finnerty in Bayonne, NJ. He was a fireman in Bayonne. They settled there and had a family and died in Bayonne. Here is his family info as I have it.
John Joseph Finnerty -
Born 8 Jul 1877 in Galway, Ireland; Parents are: Patrick Finnerty (born Mar 1848 in Loughrea, Galway) and Maria Callanan
Siblings: Patrick born in 1881 in Ireland and Mary born 29 Aug 1889 in Bayonne, NJ. Still working on other siblings, etc.
Marriage: Anne O'Grady (went by Annie, name also listed on birth as Mary Anne) (born 14 Jan 1874 in Loughrea, Ireland) in 1901.
Their Children: Margaret Mary b. 1901, Genevieve b. 1904, John Francis b. 1908, Francis X b. 1910, Patrick J b. 1913, all born in Bayonne, NJ
Let me know if any of this matches anything you have.
