<<I am especially interested in learning about those last 3 names you list. I've not seen these names mentioned in my research. I suppose that they are recent connections.>>

Right. And I made that connection through public records and have no contact with them. Since they may be living, I'll just list antecedents here:

Michael J. DELEHANTY, (ca.1834-1888 Astoria) [Black Stump]
& Lucy LEE, (ca 1835-1917) [Black Stump?]
|-- Lucy Irene DELEHANTY, (1865 Ast, d. 1907-27)
| & Michael CASEY, b. 1866-7 Ast, m. 1888 Ast, d. 1927, Bkln [Calvary]
| \-- 3 children + descendants
|-- Nellie DELEHANTY, b. ca. 1865 Astoria?
\-- Michael? DELEHANTY, b. ca. 1865 Astoria?

My connection is as a descendant of the Andrew FLANAGAN family of Astoria. Andrew's oldest child James (1835, Bklyn - 1891 Astoria) married John Delahanty's oldest(?) child Bridget (c1830-1907). James and Bridget were childless. Since I am dipping into Astoria records, I've collected material on the first generation collateral families: CASEY, DELAHANTY, EVANS, KELLY and EGAN.

Michael Casey (named above) was the brother of Mary Casey, who married another of Andrew Flanagan's sons. I believe there was also a professional entanglement between the Casey and Delahanty families. This was alluded to in the Chapman Publishing portrait of George Casey (Michael C's older brother), who was also a fire chief of Long Island City and perhaps a competitor of your William.

<<Did you find anything on Delia/Bridget Delahanty-Byrne? She was the 4th surviving child of Denis delahanty & Mary Ann Toomey.>>

Don't have much on her. I don't even have a decent head-count of Denis' children. I only have a citation from Bridget Flanagan's 1907 probate hearing of a niece of hers named Delia BYRNES living at 482 Baldwins St, L.I.C. Also at that address was another niece Kate GOODWIN. Interesting case that divided many Delehantys against one Margaret Delehanty Brady (daughter of Denis) against many other Delehantys.

<<By the way, OLD STUMP cemetery is actually the oldest section of what is now Mt. Saint Mary's cemetery. There is no connection with Brinkerhoff.>>

Interesting. So there must have been two separate Black Stump cemeteries. In the plot map of Brinkerhoff, it is definitely referred to as Blackstump. Would like to hear more when you get a chance.
