I am looking for information of the parents of: Mary Elizabeth Kearns B. August 13, 1864 in PA??? She died March 11, 1915 in Meadville, Crawford Co. PA Married: Patrick D. Rudy
Her fahter is a JOseph Kearns from Ireland. This is all the info we have on him.
Mary's mother was believe to be Rhonda Bell but we don't know that for sure. My aunt had trouble finding them in the Census and everything.
This is what she wrote me. I know that Joseph Kearns came to America from Ireland and that he married a woman from Ohio.I am not sure if her first name was Bell or last name was.I have Rhoda Bell as her name and after talking with Aunt Eileen and Aunt Mabel.Her last name may have been Bell and they may have been fron Astabula, Ohio or out around Youngstown.This is a good guess.I had put questions out to people there, but nothing.Aunt Mabel and Aunt Eileen remember going to visit relatives in that part of Ohio, but didn't really know who they were.I think in one of the Census there was a Joseph Kearns in Ashtabula area. I think that Joseph moved his family to Crawford for work.I only know of two kids they had.His wife may have died young or left.I think that Joseph died at his sons house.His son evidently never marrying.
If anyone has info on this family I would love to have it. firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
