so is the original spelling Leahey or Leahy? my maiden name is Leahey... Any history of depression with Leaheys? or Leahys? I would love to find out about where my people are from..I know very little before my grandparents...they kind of avoided their ancestry due to prejudice against the Irish and Italians. My grandfather was Francis Joseph Leahey. He and his immediate family lived in Scarsdale,NY.
