Searching for info on my gg-grandparents before immigrating from Ireland to USA. My gg-grandfather Michael Kiley, father ? Kiley, Mother Anne Head, was born abt. 1831 in Ireland. Probably died sometime after 1870 but before 1880 maybe in Mt.Carmel Pa.He married Mary Kennedy. She was b.1837 in Ireland, & d.12/27/1904 in Mt. Carmel Pa. They are listed on the 1870 Mt. Carmel census as follows: Micheal Kilay - 39 yrs - works in coal mines - value of real estate $600 - value of personal $100 - born Ireland Margaret - age 30 - Keeps house - wife born in Ireland Margaret - age 14 - at home - born Pa. Elizabeth - age 12 - at home - born Pa. Patrick - age 11 - at home - born Pa. Ellen - age 9 - at home - born Pa. (my g-grandmother) Michael - age 6 - at home - born Pa. John -age 4 - at home -born Pa. James - age 2 - at home - born Pa. 20th day of June 1870 Michael American Citizen at this time. Notice the discrepancies - Michael Kiley spelled Micheal Kilay & Mary listed as Margaret. The 1880 Mt.Carmel Pa. Dist 3..Dist 158. Number 52. 19th day of June lists Mary & her 2nd husband Bernard Larner, so Michael Kiley probably died sometime between those 2 census'.Mary's tombstone in St. Mary's Cemetery, Beaverdale Pa. reads Mother Mary Kiley Larnard (spelling is different)1837-1904.Also on the tombstone are the names of 2 of Mary & Michael Kiley's sons; Michael J. Kiley 1863-1907 & James J. Kiley 1868-1945. There is also a flat marker in the ground in front of this tombstone that reads Michael Kiley.Could this be my gg-grandfather. The 1880 census lists Bernard Larner - age 37 - Coal miner employed for 6 months of this year - born Ireland. Mary..wife age 39 keeping house born Ireland. Lizzie Kiley stepdaughter at home born Pa. Patrick Kiley Stepson 28 works in coal mine born Pa. Ellen (my g-grandmother) 18 stepdaughter at home born Pa. Michael age 15 born Pa. works in coal mines. John Kiley age 13 stepson works in coal mines. James age 12 stepson at home born Pa. James McDonald Boarder age 27 Born Pa. rail road. Patrick Juddigaro Boarder age 28 Joseph Lindsey 27 boarder laborer Ten years later the 1900 census june 2 dist 136 ward 2 supervisors dist 10 James A. Dettrey Enumerator 12th census U.S. schedule 1 population - lists Mary Larner age 56 married 6 years born Ireland her father born Ireland, her mother born Ireland. Came to America 1860 lived here for 40 years. Michael son age 32 single born Pa. father born Ireland, mother born Ireland, number mine laborer of months not employed 8. Can read & write. James age 27, single born Pa. parents born Ireland mine laborer number of months not employed 4. Can read, write & speak English. So by this time Bernard Larnard was either passed away or gone away.There were not any children from their marriage. Must have been a mistake on Mary's age some where in the census'. She was 67 yrs. when she died in 1904. I do not know from where in Ireland they came & I do not know the names of Mary Kennedy's parents (her father was 1st name?? Kennedy, her mother ?? or the first name of Michael Kiley's father. Know nothing about Bernard Larnard at all, except that he was married to my gg-grandmother & was born in Ireland.
Maybe someone can help with info on Michael Kiley & Mary Kennedy Kiley (2nd marriage Larnard).
