Re: McGrotty's out there please respond
I am not directly related to the McGrotty family, but I have been researching McGrottys in Brooklyn, NY, in an effort to find information about my gggrandmother Huldah (Hansell) (Hall) McGrotty.
Huldah Hansell married Joseph Hall, in Malden, England, September 1841. They had at least five children before Huldah came, without Joseph, to NY, in 1854.
On the 1860 census, Huldah had married Alexander McGrotty and has two children Mary, and Lucy McGrotty. Mary born in England and Lucy in NY.The Hall children lived with the McGrotty family.
Alexander died in 1868.
In 1900, Huldah lived with her daughter's family Clinton and Lucy (McGrotty) Phipps.
In Huldah's obituary, she is said to have had 10 children.
I am hoping you will be able to tell me something about Huldah's family.
