My GreatGrandmother, Catherine Mary FLAHERTY emigrated from either Clare or Limerick, Ireland about 1882. She was born March 17, 1865/1867, daughter of Mary Quane and unknown Flaherty; her siblings were Jack/John, William, Patrick, Mary, Bridget. She came to work with her sister Mary as a domestic in NEW YORK CITY. She married Laurence O'KEEFE from Fedamore Parish, Limerick, on Feb. 8, 1890--in New York City. Laurence was born June 21, 1868, the son of Catherine Cosgrove (Cosgrif) and John O'Keefe. Catherine and Laurence moved to Chicago, Illinois before 1891, and their children were born there: Mary Catherine, Catherine Mary, Margaret Mary, John James (My Grandfather), Joseph James, Patrick James, Lawrence, Nellie and Agnes. Catherine died February 17, 1956, in Chicago.
I have NO information about the Flaherty's, or where she was born in Ireland--OR her Father's first name. I would be so happy to learn more about her from anyone who is related to this family !!!
