Tom:In the 1900 US Census I found a Walter KILGALLON b. Feb 1862, emigrated 1881 to USA and married a Mary MALANY, (could there be more than one Mary MALANY or MALONEY?)She was b. Jan 1865. They married on June 1, 1884 in Cook County, IL.Their children:Joseph b. July 1886, Catherine b. Oct 1887, Margaret b, Dec 1884 and Loretta b. March 1892. Perhaps this is your Walter?The family who visited?
It would make sense that this MALANY/MALONEY, MULLANNY person is from the family who visited yours.Thus, the KILGALLON connection to your family!
Dorothy KILGALLON and her parents, Mae AHERN and JAMES KILGALLON, and her younger sister resided in Cook County, IL as well as New York.I have a book about her written by Lee Israel.There's talk in my family of Dorothy as a relative as well.I always wondered why my grandparents liked to watch "What's My Line?"
What is your father's first name?If I have this right, your great grandfather was Patrick, b. Feb 1873 and his dad was Thomas, b. 12/23/1839, married to Catherine Mullany b. July 1844, and they lived on Hubbard St in Racine, WI.Their children:John, Anna and Margaret.
I have another Patrick DEVINE, b. 1805, d. 1889 who married Mary MALONEY, b, 1810.Are these people Thomas DEVINE'S parents?
