    Hello again!

    I found the baptismal records for Patrick and John on Roots Ireland. See below. There were no Francis Grady baptismal records in the 1700s and the earliest Francis Grady marriage was his sons marriage in 1829.

  • TU Roger, really appreciate your assistance.  Provides a few more possible leads with sponsors.

    Joanem (John) may have married a Marian Mulrenan, born May 1822, Roscommon, Sligo, dom 5 June 1842 Tanaugh, Sligo.

    Also, Patricum may have married an Elizabeth Fallon in Killanummery, Leitrim, Ireland; no dom.  Possibly Patrick met his demise in Liverpool, Lancashire, England 1852

    I;ve been doing this Grady research since 1983, lots of brick walls.


    Any suggestions:  TU, again,  Mike

  • Hi Mike!

    I searched the free site  and located a death index record for an 1875  death record for an 84 year old Patrick Grady. The site only has index records for deaths from 1864-1877 and the full images for 1878-1969  We expect the r3cords for 1864-1877 to be added in the near future.

    I located an 1886 death record for an Honor Grady. See link. Last record on page. You may have to sign-in to see the record.

    I found an 1884 Francis Grady record in another part of Co. Sligo. Not sure if this is your Francis. First record on page

  • You guys give so much information and resources here. I am researching my family history a little. This idea came to me when I got to while preparing my paper, it made me understand that we need to know our roots. These free essay examples were about reunited families after wars and I remember my grandmother`s stories about her family too. I think she would like the idea of research too!

  • Hello, Mike!

    I have Grady Ancestors but I don't think we match there. But if you have done a DNA test, I do have a McLean ancestor from Riverstown/Collones area, Drumcliff, Sligo, Ireland. Thomas McLean and his brother Owen settled in Ossining NY after leaving Ireland. I would be glad to exchange GED numbers. There is a small chance we will have a DNA connection given the area and that they seem to have married women born in the same area. You can reach me at:
