good morning Kim, ok all I have from a 1880 census United States is John H. Delaney residence in New York City, NY, NY occupation was Machinist Ann was also there with him & their children Charles H. Delaney b.1857 NY Lawrence J. ''b.1860 NY Margaret ''' b.1863 NY John J.'' b.1867 NY married Margaret Carey b.1869 MA. her parents also came from Ireland Ann ''b.1870 NY
I'm thinking they got married in Ireland then came to NY for all their children were born in NY Ann was born in Ireland also but I have no last name for her or anything else on her.
Thank you for your help I wish you lots of luck for I've been looking an it's a dead end for me
