My 2nd great grandparents John Kelly and his spouse Mary (Maria) appear on the 1860, 1870 and 1880 federal census reports for Wilmington, Newcastle, Delaware. John was born in Ireland about 1830 and Mary (Maria) was born in Ireland about 1835. They married 21 Nov 1850 in Wilmington, Newcastle, Delaware. In the Catholic Church records of Wilmington, I also located baptismal records for their children Thomas, born 21 Apr 1855, Francis, born 23 Aug 1851, Catherine, born 15 Mar 1857, James, born 1859 and baptized 06 Feb 1859, Mary (Maria), born 22 Dec 1860, Anna Maria (Anne Marie), born 07 Jul 1863 and John, born 08 Oct 1865. Thet had at least one other child, Hugh, born 1854. These names and birthdates are consistent with census and other information I have. A Patrick McGarity appears with the family on the 1860 census report; he was born in Ireland and is close in age to John and Mary. The baptism sponsors included among others Thomas McGarrity and Patrick McGarrity. I have been unable to find any evidence of the birth Mary McGarity or John Kelly in Ireland. I wonder if anyone has any information regarding Mary McGarrity, her spouse John Kelly or Patrick McGarrity, born 1828 in Ireland, or Thomas McGarity. Patrick appears on the 1880 census with his wife Mary, four daughters and a son. Thank you. Have a good day.
