Seeking information re JOHN O'KELLY ENRIGHT, born in Ireland (unknow where) about 1846; (Father also named John Enright). Came to USA in 1863, ended up in Chicago, IL., eventually followed by a brother, Denis, and a sister, Mary. Married Annie Reidy Enright (also from Ireland)in 1870,(witnesses Pat McCarthy, Ellen Reidy) resided in Bridgeport nighborhood, South-side of Chicago, was a Saloonkeeper. Children: Nellie, Thomas, John, Annie, Susan, Twins Mary & Denis,and James. Died 1906.
The first census he appears in is the 1870-, and he is married by then to my GGGrandmother. He did purchase a grave lot in Calvary Cemetry for a "Thomas" Enright, aged 38 at his death in 1865. I have no idea whether that was a brother, or a cousin--and the cemetery has only the name, age and date of burial.
