Looking for the sisters of my gggrandfather
Bridget and Catherine O'KEANE/O'KANE/O'KEENE
both born in Ire 1850 & 1851...first found in the 1870 US census in Fall River Ma. living with their bro Patrick and his wife Maria in the 4thward ..both worked in a cotton mill
I am not sure what happen to them after that...I know that Patrick and Maria went to Harrison Co Ohio in the early 1870s then on to Rochester Pa later in the 1870s where they lived until both died in the 1880's...Bridget and Catherine might have gone with them and then later to Rochester as there is mention of a MRS MURPHY in 1885 that took her niece Margaret out of the St Pauls Orphanage in Pittsburgh Pa who lived in Rochester and it had to be either Patrick or Maria's sister that was this Mrs Murphy ...There was another sister of Patrick O'Keanes that came to Rochester Pa in 1884 with her husband from Ireland ELIZABETH O'CONNOR nee O'KEANE husbands name was Michael...know 1 of their sons born in Rochester lived Roger Authur br in the late 1880's but do not know what happen to them either...there might also be a brother MICHAEL O'KEANE who came over from Ireland also...he was Godfather to Patrick's daughter Margaret in the late 1870' Rochester idea what happen to him either...Any info or ideas appriciated
