Re: John Nulty 1805-1882 IRE,ENG,PA
My gggrandmother was Marcella Nulty, born near Oldcastle in County Meath in 1844. Her parents were Patrick Nulty and Rose Shields. Marcella emigrated to the US in 1870 and married James Myles/Miles in New York City in 1871. They had four children: Edward (m. Elizabeth Ward), Ann (m. John White), Rose and my ggrandfather, Philip (1880 - 1948).
The similarities, particularly in family naming practices seem more than coincidental. Do you know if John Nulty had siblings?
