Rose and Annie O'Toole, Ireland > Philadelphia, PA
Posted by: Samantha Riggins (ID *****0615) Date: December 05, 2011 at 06:03:45

Hello everyone,
I'm currently trying to find as much information as possible about my great-great-grandmother, Rose (sometimes listed as Rosetta) E. O'TOOLE.

She was born c. 1865-1869 in Ireland. She departed Liverpool, England aboard the British King and arrived at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 13, 1886.

She remained in Philadelphia and married William WHITEHEAD around 1887.

They had 7 children:
Kathleen (my great-grandmother)

Rose O'TOOLE WHITEHEAD's sister Annie O'TOOLE (born c. 1877) was shown living with her sister and the family in the 1900 U.S. Census, having immigrated in 1892 from Ireland as well. Annie later married Patrick BROGAN.

Rose O'TOOLE WHITEHEAD died on November 15, 1900 of lobar pneumonia and is buried in New Cathedral Cemetery in Philadelphia, and my great-grandmother Kathleen went to live with her uncle Patrick BROGAN and aunt Annie O'TOOLE BROGAN.

Any help at all with this family line is very much appreciated. Ultimately my goals are to find the village/town/city of origin in Ireland (so that I may further pursue records there) and to find any relations in the US and/or Ireland. Thanks in advance!
