FERRY in Philadelphia / MCGINLEY
I have been doing some family tree research and came up with the name Nellie Ferry from Philadelphia. I have my information from Ellis Island Records.

My grandfather's brother John McGinley, of Donegal, lived in the USA between 1912 and 1920. He then returned to the states in 1921.
At immigration in New York he stated that he was going to stay with a sister, Nellie Ferry of 809 North Beechwood Street, Philadephia.
I'm fairly certain he did not have a sister called Nellie Ferry, but as there was a Nellie Ferry in Philadelphia, he must have known her.
Do you know much about Nellie?
I understand John later moved to San Francisco and had a daughter called Erin but after that the trail goes cold.
