According to the book "The Rascal King" James Michael's father's name was Michael Curley. I have been trying to do research on the Curley's because in my family Michael Burke m. Ellen Devlin, my gr-grands came to Boston area about the same time as Michael Curley. Back in Ireland Michael Burke's father John m. Mary Curley, my gr-gr-grands. We are trying to find out if she was Curley's sister or cousin. We know we are related.
James Michael Curley gave my father's brother B. Russell Burke a job during the depression because we were relatives, as was his practice.
Any geneaolgy that you can share would be greatly appreciated.
