I am trying to learn if my grandfather had/has any ancestors/descendents still living in Co Donegal.
His name was Patrick Bradley. He was born May 1864 to Bernard Bradley and Mary McGeoghan.I know he had at least two sisters Mary and Margaret.They went to California and wound up marrying O'Connor brothers born in Canada.
Patrick came to MA, where on April 17 1902 married Mary Ann O'Donnell. She was the daughter of James O'Donnell and Susan White Doherty(still don't know what the White is-?) Mary Ann was born July 28 1873 in Co Donegal.
Mary Ann had several siblings all but 2 came to Boston, and married here. Patrick 1867 (stayed in Ireland I think) John 1868 m Bridget Long Neil 1870 m Rose McGonigal Mary Ann* Maggie 1875 (stayed in Ireland too I think) Denis 1878 m Catherine McLaughlin whose parents were Mark and Grace McLaughlin(her maiden name as well) Philip 1880 was the last to immigrated in 1897 and wound up marring Ellen Noon. All the above stayed in MA(Boston, Salem, Malden Everett, So Boston, areas)
A few years ago I learned that there were still several Bradley families living in Co Donegal.I hope that one of you see this, and maybe just maybe have some inf for me.
I know that Bernard(Patrick's dad) had a brother named Cornelius who married a Mary or Margaret Doherty/Dogherty and they had at least one son Neal dob April 1864. May have had other children--maybe someone knows?
I'd love to find out who M McGeogahns parents were, and if she had sibblings too.
Sorry to be so long winded here,I did write to someone name Bridget(many I'm sure) got one letter in which she said she'd get back to me, never did. (hoppe shes okay) I think she said she was living with her brother.
