Greetings, David,
No, I don't have any info about Ireland contacts or specifics other than your indicating George's family was from Galway, Ireland. I will look forward to learning more of your family lines when your Mom sends you the info. Thanks so much. Will email you separately as well.
James Bellew's wife, Catherine Moroney/Maroney is said to have been from County Clare, Ireland.
James sister married Morris Murphy. Below is some information about that:
1880 Census, City of Oconto, WI:
6 19 5 5 Murphy Morris W M 40 X Works in saw mill X . . . . . Wisconsin Ireland Ireland
6 20 Murphy Rosa W F 30 Wife X Keeping house Canada Ireland Ireland
6 21 Bellew Rosa W F 72 Mother-in-law X Ireland Ireland Ireland

Rose S. is buried next to James Bellew at the Catholic Cemetery, Oconto, WI. Based on age, grave location, & Obit it is my assumption that Rose is James' mother. mbj
