I am searching for information on the families of John Aaron Kelly and his wife Margaret Marrey/Marry from or near Drogheda, Co. Louth. According to family lore, John Aaron Kelly was a Fennian who fled Ireland c 1880. He first when to Philadelphia and later moved to upstate New York.
Again according to family lore The Kellys made fine shoes and boots. The Marrey family were the weavers of table linens.
John Aaron Kelly may have had a sister or cousin named Jenny/Eugenia Kelly who migrated to Montgomery, Ala. She was married twice, to a Dr. Nicrose and to a Phillips Fitzpatrick. She had a sister Clair who was a nun. If any of this sounds familiar please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
