Hello. My great, great grandparents settled in Wayne Co after coming to the US from Ireland. I don't have my great, great grandfather's name. I do know that my great great grandmother's first name was Nancy. They had 4 boys. Hugh born in Ireland in 1845, Richard born in NY around 1850, Michael, my great grandfather born in Clyde and the youngest brother Ted also born around Clyde.

I know that my Great Grandfather Michael was a glassblower by trade and he had two children Richard and Maude. I understand that one of them was baptized in one of the Catholic churches near Clyde...I think St. John's. I believe his wife was Mary Christly. I don't know what became of her. Her last child was born in 1894 in Scranton,Pa. My great grandfather Michael is remarried by 1899 to my great grandmother Catherine...25 years her junior. I assume Mary died of something as that is what I was told. I have not found any record of death or cause of death.

Michael seemed to have moved around a lot. I have not found much on his other brothers or his mother. I did find his mother living in Oneida county in 1880 being 60 years of age. I can't locate her after that. Ted died in Durhamville, NY in 1938 and is buried there.

Anyone information would be greatly appreciated.
