We are also looking for Flaherty's. Our family was: Mary born to Michael Flaherty and Nora Ford around 1870 per passenger list in 1890. We think they are from Galway but not sure. Mary and her husband Thomas Conroy came to New York 14 May 1890, he was 22 and she was 20. They settled in Brooklyn and he worked on the waterfront. From 1892 to 1901 they had 5 children, one child died in 1904. Then Thomas was supposely killed on the docks no proof, that was around late 1904 early 1905.Their children were placed in a home in May 1905 in Brooklyn till June 1907 when the oldest was 15,now he could work. Have old address,know where all are buried except Thomas, where is he and where in Ireland are they from, who is Thomas parents? Does any of this connect with your Flaherty's.
