I am seeking information about my great-grandparents John J. Diggins and Mary Catherine Kinane Diggins.
John was born about 1860 in Ireland; do not know specifically where. His father's name was Michael and his mother's maiden name was Ellen Sullivan. John died in Boston in 1937. Mary Catherine was also born in Ireland, about 1862; she died in Boston in 1911.
They were both in Boston by 1984, because that is when their first son, John, was born. My grandfather, Thomas, was born the following year.
John worked as a laborer, probably a mason. Interestingly, my grandfather's death certificate put's John place of birth as Rockport, Maine, but that is false.
