My great-great grandmother, Johanna Croke, came to the United States in 1859. She and her five children (Margaret, Mary, Walter, Thomas and John) boarded the ship "Resolute" in Liverpool and arrived at the Port of New York on December 10, 1859.
Her son, John Croke, is my great grandfather though his marriage to Hanora Breen. Their daughter, Elizabeth Croke, is my grandmother. Elizabeth Croke married James Edward Dolan. Their daughter, Margaret Rosamond Dolan, was my mother.
