I am fairly certain that I am your relative.Daniel and Bridget Kealy Ivory were married in St. Michael's Catholic Church in Danesfort, County Kilkenny, Ireland on February 2, 1826.Bridget passed away in Ireland.Daniel and his five sonsand one daughter ended up in Clayton County, Iowa.Margaret, the one daughter, was by great grandmother.Some of my Ivorys moved to Minnesota in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area. I grew up less than a mile from where Daniel lived and died and have been in that house many times.I tended the cemetery were he was buried in my youth - Cox Creek Sacred Heart Catholic Cemetery. I think that you can find a photograph of his gravestone on the Internet.I posted it there.
Tomorrow, i met by third cousin, Thomas Ivory for the first time.His great grandfather, Michael Ivory settled in Des Moines, Iowa after Clayton County.He was a stone mason who worked on the Iowa Capitol in Des Moines.
Without checking I think that you are a descendant of Daniel and Bridget's son Daniel.
