My ancestor is named Thomas Kelly born in Galway abt 1858 and then shows up in America in Roxbury Massachusetts and enlisted in the Marine Corp in Boston 1882 and finished his tour in the Brooklyn Navy Yard where he was discharged in 1887 and eventually married Bridget Feeney in New York in 1887. My questions is how can I find his family in Ireland also when he left and if he left with anyone or by himself. Thanks for all your efforts.

  • Seaniejoe,

    Subscription site -  www.rootsireland.ie - has a record of 69 "Thomas Kelly" in the years 1853 - 1863 in County Galway. The surname "Kelly" is quite common in the county.

    What were his parents names. This should be on his marriage certificate and also his death record.

    Regards,

    McCoy
