Arthur J Skelton Family, mig from Ireland around the 1920s to Pittsburgh
Posted by: Kimberli Maloy (ID *****0191) Date: February 10, 2012 at 12:30:04

Looking for any information I can find on my paternal Grandparents Anna B Boyle & Arthur J Skelton. Birth dates/places are in subject line, they married & migrated together to Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh) US during the depression. Dates of death are Anna 4/8/1956 age 59; Arthur 7/17/1966 age 76

They had several children William, Arthur (died in the war), James (Jimmy), Anne, Margaret, Thomas (Tom), Mary & Jonny (who died at a very early age) and Elizabeth (Betty), my father being William (now deceased) and my Uncle Tom being the last sibling still living and the one who gave me the birth/death information. At one point William & Arthur went to live at an orphanage, I believe grandpa (Arthur) worked as a trolley conductor in Pittsburgh? They lived in a house down the side of a steep hill and I think it was near St Mary's church... I just remember going to the church with Da after walking to the place where the house used to be and looking down to find it gone.

Any direction I could get in finding relatives still living in Ireland, family friends in Pittsburgh, stories, memories or other family history would be sincerely appreciated.

Thank you
Kimberli Skelton Maloy
