I'm looking for information on a Sarah KEELAN born abt 1827 in Ireland (poss. Co. Monaghan or Co. Armagh). She married Timothy LAWRENCE (b: abt 1820 in Ireland). They immigrated to America prior to 1847 where they lived in Rhode Island and Mass until abt 1865 when they moved to NYC. By 1877 Sarah was living in Augusta, GA. They were Roman Catholic and he was employed as a butcher.
Their children were: Mary (b: 1847), Robert (b: 1848), Edward (b: 1849), Sarah (b: 1850), Bryan Joseph (b: 1852), Bernard (b: 1854), and Frances (b: 1855).
Timothy’s father is believed to be Joseph LAWRENCE who did not immigrate to America but his mother Frances (b: 1788-IRE) did and was living with Timothy in Rhode Island in 1865.
Also interested in a Bernard KEELAN (b: 1825-IRE) and his possible wife Margaret (b: 1828-IRE) who immigrated to America in 1850.
Any information on my KEELAN and LAWRENCE ancestors would be greatly appreciated.
