Information on Michael Joseph Canty

I would like to know if anyone knows anything about my grandfather Michael Joseph Canty. I believe he was born in Bedford, Ma. Married my grandmother Mary Josephine Kane. Michael had three brothers a 1/2 brother named Thomas, and another brother names Simon. Michael and Mary lived in Easton, Ma on Prospect St. They had six children Charles, Tom, Joseph, James,(my father), Mary the only daughter, and Paul. I know some of the children were born at home in a house on Prospect St. The home was next to three very dated graveyards. My grandfather owned quit a lot of land on Prospect St. I believe the Canty name originated from County Cork, Ireland. Which my grandfather's parents left during the potato famine. I want to learn more about one the names of my great grandparents names and more about our limb of the family tree. Please help if you can.
