I am searching for anyone who may have information on the marriage and deaths of a Gately and Catherine Brennan (Also known as Kate Brennan) in an effort to find anyone who may also have information on the Irish origins of Catherine Brennan’s father Patrick J. Brennan.
Catherine Brennan, born 4/7/1852 in West Newton, Middlesex County, Massachusetts married a Gately (unknown first name.) She had a son John P. Gately who was born before 1893 but probably after 1872. Catherine died before 1893.Catherine Brennan had a sister Annie E. Brennan who married Edward Gately. I don’t know if the two Gately husbands were related, but they could be. Annie and Catherine also had other siblings, among whom was John F. Brennan who was a partner with Gately in a clothing store in New Haven, Connecticut circa 1904.
Catherine Brennan’s father was Patrick J. Brennan, born around 1825 –1827 in Ireland. Naturalization records say he was born in Tipperary and came to the USA (Boston, Massachusetts) around April 7, 1848. He married Ellen Tracy (born about 1831 in Ireland) on July 12, 1851 in South Boston, Massachusetts, and they lived in West Newton, Massachusetts. Patrick died in 2/10/1893; Ellen died August 4, 1866. Patrick’s father was Jeremiah (also known as Derby) Brennan, born before 1803 in Ireland; he married Catherine Whalen, born in Ireland.
