Are we talking about the same Matthew Carolan --
My Matthew was born in Co.Meath in 1883.He emigrated to Pittsburgh, PA in May 1905.According to Ships Manifest he was going to his older brother Joseph at Pennsylvania Ave., Pittsburgh.
At some stage Matthew started a livery business with his other brother Chris in Denver, Colorado.Later they returned to Pittsburgh and set up the Liberty Battery Co.The brothers had a disagreement. Matthew then chauffered for a family in Pittsburgh where he met his wife Katie Spellman from Galway.After they married in 1913 they then moved to Los Angeles, CA.
Matthew & Katie had 3 children, John, Marie & Frank.Matthew died in CA in 1938 and his wife shortly afterwards.
