births for Issac and Mary(Dunne)children:

(couldn't locate Mary's birth)

My recommendation is to contact the Massachusetts Dept of Vital Records for marriage of James and Bridget.If they don't have it check with Brockton town clerk.Get a copy of James Dunn's naturalization record which generally have good info on them.If you live near an LDS(Latter Day Saints)library branch go to it and check parish records for Belturbet and surrounds to try and locate births for James and Anne's children.Their marriage may be there as well.Hope this helps,Kim
