I am researching the Kelly family of Roscommon, Ireland. My line starts with Martin Kelly, b. ca 1825, Roscommon, Ireland; d. 1899, San Francisco, SF Co., CA.
Martin married Catharine Dolan (also of Roscommon), ca 1847.I'm not sure where they were married, but their first child, Margaret was born in 1849 in Manchester, Hillsboro Co., NH.
The children of Martin and Catharine were: Margaret, b. 1849, Manchester, NH; m. Thomas Augustine Jones Catharine, b. 1852, MA; m. Thomas McSwegan Michael, b. 1853, Roxbury, MA John Joseph, b. 1856, San Francisco, CA Mary Ann, b. 1859, San Francisco, CA; m. Frederick Meincke Winifred "Winnie" b. ca 1860, San Francisco, CA; m. James Small Mathew Andrew, b. ca 1862, San Francisco, CA Ellen, b. 1866, San Francisco, CA Josephine Ellen, b. ca 1874, San Francisco, CA
The Kelly's migrated from NH to MA ca 1850, then on to San Francisco around 1855.Martin Kelly owned boardinghouses/saloons in San Francisco.He died 25 Sep 1899 in San Francisco.
