Your story sort of resembles that of my family. My great-great grandfather, John Donahue, lived in Taunton, Massachusetts and had a sister named Margaret (born about 1856 in Ireland). In 1882, in Taunton, Margaret married Cornelius Driscoll of Ashtabula, Ohio. The Donahues came from Skibbereen in County Cork and left for the United States in the early 1870s. Margaret's brother John remained in Taunton. Another brother, Patrick, settled in nearby Somerset. Another brother named Andrew moved to the Toledo, Ohio area. I think her brother James went to Gary, Indiana and brother William to Ohio. Their parents were John Donahue and Mary Daley. This might be more detail than you need, but I wonder if there is a connection. You might want to be searching for Taunton, not Boston, Massachusetts.
