Not sure if there is a connection or not.. My great grandfather Francis Dunleavy lived in Providence RI from 1880s till his death in 1906. He was born in MA in 1956. He was a policeman in Providence. They lived on Potter St. The names of his children were Thomas Francis, Christopher, Ellen, Francis, Twins Frederick and George(who died in infancy) Elizabeth (died at 9yrs) Mary (death at 14 days) Loretta and Eva Elizabeth. The reason I mention the names is that I have found he named the Children after father, mother, grandmothers and grandfathers. His first born Thomas Francis was born in RI in 1882.. I know that the irish immigrant was Francis' father Christopher....Because Brian Donlevy the 1940s actor is a cousin I know that Thomas Donlevy his father (notice name spelling) may very likely be Christopher's brother???? That branch of the family lived in OHIO and I have found a Christopher on the census for MA and also OH.. Do you have anything that could connect?
