I am serching for the ship and port of entry ofmy great, great grandparents who came over from Ireland before or just after (around) 1840. Thier names were John and Mary (Gerry) Gately from Roscommon County.I do not know the name of the town they came from. John was born 7/23/1810; son of Patrick and and Bridget(?)Gately. Mary Gately was born 9/22/1817.I think they were married but they may not have been.My Aunt tells me they came over before the potato famine as their first born,Michael R., was born in Dorchester Suffolk Massachusetts July25, 1845.Other children born of John and Mary included Bridget, Mary Ann, Ellen Marie, my grandmother,Edward and John Gately. My Aunt tells me that JOhn and Ellen(Nellie), were shipwrecked in December in Long Island Sound, but did make thier way to Boston.Any information would be much apprediated and thankyou for responding.
