My father Charles Joseph Fahey was 2nd generation, born in Ohio. His father Peter was born in Monkton MD to John & Catherine Ryan Fahey who married in Tuam, County Galway before coming to the US circa 1850s. John worked for the railroad in MD. He could read & write (unusual for Irish as they were denied formal education by the English for the most part) and helped his fellow Irish immigrants send letters back home. Catherine's 1st language was Irish/Gaelic. My father was named for his maternal grandfather, Charles Toole of County Mayo.
