Hello, I'm sorta grasping at straws here! My great grandmother Kate Kelly arrived (age 17) here in the USA from Castlerea, Roscommon, Ireland in May of 1902. The ship's manifestsays her destination was to visit her brother-in-law, a Mr. Murphy who lived on Staten Island, Port Richmond, NY.

I next pick her up in Jersey City, NJ, in 1909 when she married.

I have been unable to determine if she ever made it to Port Richmond. I've been unable to determine who Mr. Murphy is nor who her sibling might be.

If any of this might sound familiar to anyone, I would love to hear from you!
