**************************************
So, I cannot find out WHO Catherine's parents were nor where in Ireland she was born. I did find a possible sister, "Bridget Dolan, boarder, age 33, born may 1867 Ireland, parents born Ireland, immigrated 1884", per the same New Jersey 1900 census. Since she stayed/lived in New Jersey, I am now looking for ship records.
Any and all help with this DOLAN family will be most greatly appreciated.
