I'm looking for a needle in a haystack--

My husband's grandmother, Catherine Rodgers (or McRory) came from Ireland
before 1892, possibly from Tyrone. The story goes that she spent some time
living with cousins named Coffey who may have lived on Staten Island, New
York. According to the story, Mr. Coffey worked for the Staten Island Ferry.
We are going to Ireland in September and would like to be able to find out
more about Catherine. She married Edward English in Philadelphia in 1892 and
may have been born about 1867 in Ireland. If anyone knows about a Coffey family somewhere near Staten Island, I would be
very grateful to be able to contact them. Thank you in advance.
