John Barrett McDonnell / Ann McDonnell in Clark, Rahway, New Jersey

I desperately need assistance in locating information on a family line which I just discovered.

In July of 1937, my mother stayed with "family cousins" in Clark, Rahway, New Jersey.

These distant relatives were JOHN BARRETT MCDONNELL(b: January 18, 1885 in Co. Galway, Ireland.)and his wife. He arrived in America in 1905. In 1912, her married Anna/Ann/Annie (b: 1886; arrived in America in 1902;last name possibly Nalley, Browne, or Farrelly; place of birth in Ireland unknown).

A 1930 census report places them on Westfield Ave. in Clark. Three dependents are listed: daughter Agnes M. born in New York in 1913; son John A. born 1920 in New York; and Mary E. born in 1922 in New Jersey.

McDonnell's WWII draft registration reveals that he worked at the Americana Corp. in Manhattan, New York as an editor.

I've found no other information or documents. At the same time, I'd love to know more about the descendents of their children and , if possible, to find parental names for both John and Ann in Ireland.

Please contact me if you think you can share any little bit. I would most grateful.
