Re: James Forrey d. 1883 New Orleans

In Reply to: James Forrey d. 1883 New Orleans by Gina Heffernan of 37

I have quite a lot of information on the James Forrey family. James Forrey was my great grandmother's (Mary Grace) first husband. Try a search of the New Orleans, Louisiana 1880 census under the name Forey. It will list James, Mary Grace, Annie, Rose and Mary. After much research, I obtained baptismal certificates from St. Michael's Church in New Orleans for all three of the girls which gives their birth dates and their baptismal dates, along with the names of their sponsors. How do you know that James Forrey was born in County Mayo, Ireland and died in 1883? I have been searching the New Orleans Death Index, but have been unable to locate James Forrey. I know that Mary Grace married a William Murray (my great grandfather) around 1884-1885 in New Orleans and they moved to Galveston, Texas. You can locate them in the 1900 Galveston Texas Census under William Murray. That is how they ended up in Galveston. I hope someone reads this because I have been doing research for about the last year and this if the first time I have come across someone that is researching the same family I am. I hope you can e-mail me at
