Hi Chris, I am still plugging away at my McQuaid - suspect that they came from Tyrone as that is where the Bishop's family are stated as being from in some historical documents from the Diocese of Rochester. Have you found out what his mom's name was yet. I have gotten copies of photos from a kind person in NYC who lives near the cemetery where his parents were buried- but it is a mess and there are stones piled up near a tree when the graves were moved... so we can not verify any further info through the records of the cemetery or gravestones... but there are alot of McQuaids there. Humm what a mess. Hope all is well with you.
