My daughter's 3rd g-grandmother was Mary Mullarkey b. abt. 1835 in Ireland (have not found her papers) - She married in the 1850s to a George Fox b. March 1830 Germany - George's ship pulled into New York from Hamburg - he ended up settling in Broad Top, Bedford Co., PA. Am still looking but don't seem to be able to find any other Mullarkey's where Mary settled. Hope to have more information after this weekend.
Mary and George named their first born son John, the remaining children were Maria/Mary, George, William, Catherine Rose, Charles Anthony, James, Ellen, Maggie, Elizabeth, Thomas, Annie, and Frank. There is still one child missing but may never find them (might have been b. and d. between census periods)
Did find one baptism record,.. for their son Charles Anthony - The Church was Immaculate Conception / Catholic - in Dudley, PA. His Godparents were Dionysius McGowen and Mary McGee.[McGowen might = McKown/McKowen]
Am not sure why, but George's immigration records were found in the Fulton co. Historical Society - not in Bedfords. Regardless,.. Mary probably lived with parents somewhere between the port in NY and Broadtop - so I will focus on these two states for now.
On the census records, Mary claims that she immigrated in 1854 - btw. 1 and 2 years after George arrived (he was only 15y in 1852)- By 1860 they are both in Bedford Co.
Any knowledge of Mary's family? ,... Rebecca email@example.com
