My paternal gr fr was Michael J. McAuley, born in Drumnatrade, Co. Caven, Ire. in 1873.His parents were John & Bridget Keoghan McCauley (various spellings), farmers. Michael and 3 of his siblings emigrated to the US in 1888, arriving at Castle Garden, NY.The story is that they were sponsored by an Uncle Thomas Lynch with whom they lived in the beginning.There were 15 children in the McCauley family, and not all came to America.
The one in whom you are interested migrated here, arriving at Ellis Island in 1897 at age 23.I have a lot of particulars on his residences & occupations, but I’ll tell of his family at this time.
Peter married Elizabeth Regan on 22 June 1902 at Our Lady of Mercy Church, Brooklyn, NY.They had 5 children: Marie Alice, Peter Francis, Jr., John J., Agnes, and Julia Rose. Peter, Jr. died at age 16 of pneumonia.Daughter Julia made her mark as a pilot, while their first, named Alice on census records, became a Sparkhill Dominican nun, Sister Miriam Genevieve.There is a family burial plot at St. Raymond’s Cemetery, Bronx, NY where I have visited.In the 1930 census she is listed as a single daughter, aged 22.
If you have questions or info from your mother’s connections, please share.Is there a way to write, share copies, etc.?I have never used this genforum before now.
