|I am researching the Dempsey family. I have only gone back as far as the mid to late 1800's in the Kentucky, West Virginia area.The "prize fighter" Jack Dempsey was said to have been in my family line but, can not trace back to where he/his family originated from.|
I believe the Dempsey line came from Ireland and was the O'Dempsey's before reaching America.However, have not located the first imigrants into this country in the family.
Grandfathers name is Casey Nile Dempsey, born in Logan Co., West Virginia 1912.
Can not go back any further based on information available.
Any information you can supply would be much appreciated.
