My only knowledge ofBessie Dearie is from the IGI where it says that Andrew McCastline was born in Westchester and he married Bessie or Eliz. Dearie on 30 April 1867.His parents are RobertMcC. and Emilie Rayned. This sounds likehe is your relative.On the Manhattan,New York census for 1880 she is a widow. I don't know if they had any chidren andI haven't checkedany original sources.At the moment I am trying to find out where in Philadelphia Bessie and her siblings: Mary, Annie, Maria and GeorgeDearie were born and more about the Dearies and New York at this time. Do you know whatprofession Andrew was in? Bessie's father and brother ran a saloonin Wilkes Barre and her half brothers in New Orleans were lockmiths and bell makers.
