I am looking for decendents of Micheal Rourke born in Ireland 1840-45 and died in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY 12/1/1900. First wife was Delia born about 1842 died about 1873. They had one son Francis born about 1868. Michael was a painter and had a business with his brother Martin at 182 Grand Ave. About 1875 he married Susan born about 1854 in Boston. They had 3 daughters that I know of, Mary, Loretta and Catherine. Susan died 10/7/1904 and both she and Michael are buried in Calvary Cemetery in Woodside, Queens. Daughter Catherine died in 1909 and Loretta died in 1934. They are also in Calvaary. Do not know about Mary. Loretta married Thomas Corcoran about 1906-7 and had 2 daughters and a son Paul born 1912 and died 1985. He is also buried in Calvary. I have a lot of information on the Rourke family.
