I realize that the 1900 census shows Father born in Illinois for the boys, but it’s possible that Nora did this on purpose.She doesn’t show that she was born in Ireland, which you will see in the 1880 Census.It’s possible that neither John nor Nora ever applied for citizenship.
Sorry it took so long to post this message, but you can see the reason below.I was going to recommend that you try the 1880 Census for Crotty, IL and then I decided to take a quick look for myself.Results follow:
I found the following in the 1880 US Federal Census, State: Illinois, County: LaSalle, Village of Crotty, Roll: T9 223, Image # 274 –

· Notice John spelled Georg without the e.
How about that – no info for over a year and then 3 Census records and a marriage record in one day !
If I haven’t bored you with helpful hints, if you decide to look for John on passenger lists, I’d look under Johann also.Just like Wm is an abbreviation for William, John is a European abbrev. for Johann.
So let me know if you find out more info on this branch.I’ll keep you on my list and let you know if I happen to run across anything else on your branch.
I’m hoping to do a One Name Study on Dom and all of its variations.As I mentioned earlier, when I was young, I thought I had a rare name.But I have found out that my GGGG-grandfather had seven children (five of them boys) and my GGG-grandfather had seven children (only three of them were boys, but those three boys had THIRTY-SIX children – 11, 11 & 14) so I have a lot of relatives that I haven’t found yet.
