Kelly's of Roscommon
Posted by: Melody (ID *****3819) Date: December 27, 2009 at 18:35:32

I am researching the Kelly family of Roscommon, Ireland. My line starts with Martin Kelly, b. ca 1825, Roscommon, Ireland; d. 1899, San Francisco, SF Co., CA.

Martin married Catharine Dolan (also of Roscommon), ca 1847. I'm not sure where they were married, but their first child, Margaret was born in 1849 in Manchester, Hillsboro Co., NH.

The children of Martin and Catharine were:
Margaret, b. 1849, Manchester, NH; m. Thomas Augustine Jones
Catharine, b. 1852, MA; m. Thomas McSwegan
Michael, b. 1853, Roxbury, MA
John Joseph, b. 1856, San Francisco, CA
Mary Ann, b. 1859, San Francisco, CA; m. Frederick Meincke
Winifred "Winnie" b. ca 1860, San Francisco, CA; m. James Small
Mathew Andrew, b. ca 1862, San Francisco, CA
Ellen, b. 1866, San Francisco, CA
Josephine Ellen, b. ca 1874, San Francisco, CA

The Kelly's migrated from NH to MA ca 1850, then on to San Francisco around 1855. Martin Kelly owned boardinghouses/saloons in San Francisco. He died 25 Sep 1899 in San Francisco.

Is anyone by any chance researching this family?
