Mulcahy Family Genealogy Forum
John Mulcahy was born in Cappoquin, Waterford, Ireland, Feb 14, 1864. His parents were John Mulcahy and Johanna Fitzgerald. He came to America in his twenties, we believe. He died on nov.10, 1927, when his cab? went off the pier into the east river. In the 1920 census he resided at 233 East 122 St, Manhattan, with his wife, Delia, and his children, Margaret 17, Josephine 15, Thomas, 13, and John 10. Besides being a chauffer he also owned a bar. He purchased a plot from Calvary cemetery on Nov. 20, 1899. At that time he resided at 667-9th Ave. in Manhattan. Some time after his death, the 1930 census shows that the family moved to Jackson heights. There are a number of Thrihy’s located in Brooklyn and they worked for the New York City Fire Department. One Thomas Trihy, born in Clashmore, County Waterford, Ireland, died on April 8, 1931, and lived at 485 Pacific Street, Brooklyn. Recorded in the Brooklyn Standard Union, mass at St. Agnes, and interment at Calvary Cemetery under the direction W. A Martin, 764 Washington Ave. Mrs. Delia Mulcahy is mentioned as one of the sisters.
we are trying to find the date and the parish they were married in. so far we are "bumping up against the wall", as they say. This information is imperative so Thomas Mulcahy, the grandson, can apply for his Irish Citizenship. Thomas was in a plane crash that landed in The Everglades, Florida, years ago, and suffers from organic brain trauma from that incident that has now manifested itself. He would like to travel to Ireland since he does not know how much time he has left. Any information on the church where John Mulcahy and Delia Trihy were married would be greatly appreciated. We have already inquired at a number of funeral parlors, and have learned that their records do not go back that far, have contacted Calvary cemetery, a number of churches and the archives of The New York Archdiocese. Thank you. God bless.
