Church Records Letter K

Michael Kane

 

This is puzzling. The only Ann Bonner I have was born to Red John & Cecily Gallagher, Aug. 11, 1874, & I have been told Mike was a bachelor living with his sister & brother-in-law, the Val McDonoughs.

Bapt., Feb. 15, 1876:

Mary Kane

Parents: Michael Kane & Ann Bonner

 

Died:

Michael Kain, Jan. 15, 1901, age about 63, sickness/pneumonia; born Co. Galway (church).

Michael Kan...age 62-0-0, scarlet fever; born Ire.; farmer; parents Tom Kan & Annie Kan.

 

 

John Kelly

 

The only John Kelly I have is in the 1850 census. No family, age 23. He could not have been 28 14 years later.

There is no John & Mary Kelly in the census, only Partrick & Catherine. Is it possible the priest confused the two wives in his death report? That John & Mary (a sister of either Anthony or Sophia O'Donnell) came to [the] Island in 1860, too late for the census. They were recorded in the church roll of 1864. Mary died in 1866, in December, after the birth of Susan in October. The family moved away before [the] 1870 census, & in 1880 Bridget was visiting her uncle?

 

1864 church membership:

John Kelly P + 28

Mrs. Kelly P + 32 - Mary?

Elizabeth Kelly, 4

Mary Ann Kelly, 3

Bridgit Kelly, 1 - in 1880 she is listed in house of Anthony & Sophia O'Donnell as niece,

age 15

 

Bapt., Oct. 27, 1866:

Susan Kelly, born Oct. 19, 1866

Parents: John & Mary Kelly

- in 1870 census she is a daughter of Pat & Catherine Kelly, age 4; in

1880 age 13 - a mistake of the priest?

 

 

John Kelly & Grace Green

 

There was a John Kelly who lived in the house between Lake Gen. & L. Mich.. He was from Co. Mayo. Is this he? I find no Grace Green.

 

Bapt., Aug. 31, 1884:

Sarah Kelly, July 2, 1884

Patrick Kelly

 

In 1860, 1870 & 1880 census.

Elizabeth Kelly, 20

Mary Ann Kelly, 15

Thomas Kelly, 13

Catherine Jane Kelly, 9

James Kelly, 6

Rosy Kelly, 3

- in the 1860 census Elizabeth, Mary Ann, Thomas, & Catherine Jane are listed

as born in Ohio; the 1870 census has Mary Ann born in Ire., Thomas &

Jane born in Canada, & James born in Mich.

 

In the censuses [Mary Kelly] is called Catherine, & is present in 1860, age 40, 1870, age 48, & 1880, age 57. The birth of James in Michigan means they could have been on B.I. by 1858.
