Christopher and Michael Sweeney Kildare Ireland. These two men were brothers who both went to America. They are my g gran uncles and I can find no record of them arriving or living in America. Christopher was born in 1866 and I believe went to America before 1901. Michael was born in 1876 and is on the 1901 census but not the 1911 so I assume he went to America at some time in between 1901 and 1911. The only information I have on them in America is. A. One of them may have suffered a head injury when he was beaten and robbed. B, One of them may have been involved in the Jewellery business. C, Assuming Christopher arrived first, on meeting Michael he threw Michael's suitcase in a river because Michael's clothes would be unsuitable for America.
I'd love to know what happened to these two men so if you think you know them please get in touch.
