James William KEANE and Mary Bridget O'CONNOR

I am searching for information about James William KEANE - born January 8, 1877 possibly in Tralee, County Kerry. He was the son of James William KEANE and Catherine Hillard (or Hilliard) also of Ireland. He had three siblings: Mary, Julia and Catherine.

James William KEANE married Mary Bridget O'CONNOR - born March 17, 1878 - possibly in Listowel, County Kerry. She was the daughter of James O'CONNOR and Mary WALSH. She had two sisters - Hannah and Margaret.

It is believed that James and Mary went to New York separately in the 1890's, met and married in 1903, most likely in New York City. They had 8 children: Pauline, Catherine Ann, Mary Delores, Rose Marie, Gerald William, Julia Ann, Cornelia and James William. I believe all were born in New York City and lived in the Washington Heights area in the 20's - 50's.

ANY information would be very appeciated. Cheers, Amy
