My grandfather came from Ballinsloe,
County Galway, Ireland about 1889. I believe
he came to New York first, married (probably
NY)Margaret Shanley. They moved to Chicago where
there were a lot of Curleys (after 1900 as they were not on the 1900 Census Index for 1900 but are on 1910 and 1920) Patrick died on
Sept 23, 1924. My grandmother never remarried but
moved with their 6 children to San Diego, CA.(Think other Curley families were out in CA) I
believe all of them remained in CA. There are
two still living (both in their late 80's or early 90's).
Patrick's parents were Patrick Curley and
Margaret Head. Catherine died 2 June 1907 in
Killoran Parish, Ballinsloe. No info on Patrick
They had 10 children:
Peter, born 7 Jan 1867
Patrick (my grandfather) born either 3 Feb 1868 or 9 Mar 1869. Death certificate says 9 Mar 1869 but birth and baptismal records say 3 Feb 1868
Martin,born 9 Mar 1869 (Haven't been able to find death date on Martin to find out what's listed as his date of birth
Thomas, born 30 Sept 1872
Anne, born May 1874 (some records say Dec 1874.
Michael, born 6 April 1875
Mary, born 18 Sept 1877. Married Michael Hanson 13 Feb 1915 in Parish of Mullagh.
Bridget, born Sept or Nov 1878
Margaret, born 7 Sept 1880
Stephen born about 1883

Above info is from the Parish of Mullagh, Ballinsloe, Co Galway, Ireland

Does anyone have any info on this family. Am thinking more of the siblings came to the US but haven't been able to verify this.
