Their son was John J. Gately b. March 14, 1835 in Ireland, d. June 22, 1907 Boston.He married Ann Kenny June 24, 1857 in Dorchester.
Ann Kenny was b. 1835 in Ireland, d. Sep 16, 1912 in Boston. Her parents were Lawrence Kenny and Bridget (unknown surname).
Their daughter Catherine J. Gately b. May 15, 1858 in Roxbury, d. June 15, 1931 in Boston.Catherine married Matthew M. Morris April 28, 1881 in Boston. They were my great, great grandparents.
There are tons of their descendants still in Mass.Please send your information direct to me at email@example.com and to my sister Diane at firstname.lastname@example.org.(Diane did all of the research, and has all the records such as birth certificates, etc). She recently moved to NH from Rockland, Mass and I know she will also be excited to hear from you.
