Yes, John Hanley parents are the goal - but I'm trying to place them at the to look for a marriage cert which may yield parents.I'd also take those reported yrs of birth w/a grain of salt.And what doc says Tipperary?
Wait - John Hanley died in NH after 1930?What does his death cert/obit say?In 1910, 20 & 30 - John says born in ENG?

Do you see the curiosity of the 1900 census --
1. Nelson 5 yrs older than bros 2. Nelson's father b MA, mother CT
Was Nelson, Mrgt McCarty's son (mother b CT) and adopted by John Hanley?No Nelson's listd in the RI birth database, and there are many Hanleys .. Rhode Island Births, 1636-1930 http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=4262&enc=1http://search.ancestry.com/search/db.aspx?dbid=4262&enc=1

The 1900 census, above the others, is most interesting/credible. Here they took the time to note the birthplaces of the parents, child by child, instead of just ditto'ing it down the column.
In 1910, again, he's not claiming an Irish born parent:

I'm wondering if John & Mrgt/Grace raised him.Also wondering if he might belong to another Westerly Hanley family ... who died?
