Would like to know if this couple married in Galway, Ireland and if so when?I believe they had at least two daughters, Nellie born in 1860 and Mary born in 1864.Know Nellie came to Boston, but am not sure if Murty, Margaret or Mary also came to the U.S.Murty was arrested for being drunk at the age of 30 in Galway, but know nothing else of this family.
I am trying to find a Nellie Ford in Boston who gave birth in 1877 to my great grandmother Mary Ellen Ford and who was later put up for adoption in the Boston area.Mary Ellen's father was Patrick Punch of Ireland and was married in 1853 in New Hampshire to Mary Archdeacon in a Catholic ceremony.They later moved to Boston and he was listed as a hostler for an occupation. His father was John Punch and his mother's first name was Mary.
The only other Nellie Ford who might be my great grandmother was born in Boston to Patrick Ford and Ellen Cosgrove both of Ireland.Ellen Cosgrove departed from Cohb, Ireland on the ship North Atlantic at the age of 23. She was born about 1829 and Patrick Ford was about 5 years younger.They were married in 1857 in Boston.Patrick's father's name was also Patrick and Ellen's father's names was James.Patrick was also listed as hostler in a census.
Any help would be appreciated in sorting out my family from Ireland.
