Just discovered my gggrandparents, James McCabe and Mary McAndrew (Mary's parents names were Patrick or John and Bessie or Betsey) were married January 17, 1883 in Holyoke, Mass. Also, their first born son, Owen, was born in Holyoke on October 20,1873. It is rumored they had family already there when they arrived in American from Ireland shortly before their date of marriage. Also, the catholic priest that married them, P.B. Melan, was also rumored to be related to one of them. Unfortunately, I do not know which one. I just found out this information by requesting a records search thru Massachusetts Vital Records which I received back in the mail 2 days ago. Shortly after Owen's birth the family moved to Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania where they settled until their deaths. Additional children born to this marriage are John (Jackie), Felix, Edward, MaryAnn, Margaret and Kathryn. If anyone has any connections in the Massachusetts area please email me. My direct email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to hear from some of you.
