Greetings to FITZGERALD ancestors. I haven't done much research on this line and haven't made much progress with the research I have done. Frustrating! So, my connection to FITZGERALD initially centers in Orange County, New York....which is where I'm stuck. And that would be with: Charles FITZGERALD (1811-1897, Chester) who married Sarah GALLOWAY (1811-1899). I have found 3 children for Charles & Sarah: Jennett (m: Othniel HOLBERT); John (m: Mary Jane NEELY); Peter (M: Marietta MILLS) I suspect the parents of Charles to be William FITZGERALD (b. 1780) and Rebecca LNU (b. 1780) but I have no proof.
If my suspicion is grounded, I am still a generation or two away from proving connection to William FITZGERALD who married Hannah DRISCOLL - who I believe is the 1st generation in America for this line. William and Hannah had 6 children (possibly more) - Mary, Bridget, Kate, James, John and William - b. 28 MAR 1780. I still need to prove that Wm. (b. 1780) who married Rebecca is the same Wm. b. 28 MAR 1780. Any leads, data or connections appreciated :)
