Relation a possibility but . . . . My Mary Molloy was married to my William Garrity sometime in 1871 with first child, a son, b. in April 1872. Still . . .

For your record this is "stripped-down" 1880 census listing for a Bridgeport Molloy family that MIGHT pertain or not to your people:

1880 Census CT FHL 1254763 or NARA T9 R763 p. 239B

Molloy MARY Self F W W 60 IRE
MARY dau F W S 25 IRE
KATE dau F W S 23 NH

and, no, I couldn't find such a family in NH in 1860!

I've just mailed off a note to my first cousin in CT who will know all the Molloys currently residing there. I know HOW the Molloy's are related to me but none of the details & esp. not who MM's parents wee. Her 1927 death cert from Bridgeport lists them as "- - Mulloy"! Family can be so helpful.

Tonight I will recheck the US Censuses at the Waltham NARA; they've new but quirky search engines. Precise spelling is key - that is precise as to how the census-taker spelled it! Which is why I'll be trying your spelling variation as well as Mulloy.

So, on the baptism certificate, how are all the names spelt? Is it actually M-A-L-L-O-Y, etc. Did they continue to go by Malloy or switch to Molloy?

Where yr S&MKM in Wisconsin by 1880? Still alive there in 1900? 1910? 1920?

Where was Naturalization filed & when? Note that there are directories extant for Dublin.

Yes, please send St. A address & contact name. My contact with them in late 1970s was not useful. I do need to ask them about the Garrity-Molloy wedding in 1871: It's not in either Bridgeport OR state records! I'll go onto St. Mary's if they've nothing. All of these people gravitated to Sacred Heart in the South End when it opened in the 1880s. It got torn down for I-95 in the 1950s.

Reply when you can. My genealogical biz email address is ""
