Hugh and John Edward Farrell b. Ireland d. VA

In Reply to: Claremont tombstones by Florence of 699

My Aunt said she would be glad to take the photos. She married into the other Farrell family that lived in Claremont.

I see on the Surry Co Historical Society website, that the Catholic cemetery had two Farrell men about the same age. John Edward b. 1859 is my Uncle's line and the Hugh b. 1858 is yours. Do you know if they were brothers? Both were born in Ireland.

In doing some census digging, I found that your Hugh obtained his citizenship in 1880, a note on the 1920 Surry census. I assume that Hugh came to Surry Co about 1900. John Edward was here in 1880. Were they from King Co NY? I also noted that John Edward's wife, Ellen, was born in Long Island NY. They may be the same couple whose marriage was in Manhatten NY in 1872. If so , her maiden name is May.

In the 1880 census there is a Hugh O'Farrell age 23 born Ireland in Brooklyn, Kings Co NY. Is this your man?

Agnes M. b. 1897 shows up on the 1920 census in Henrico Co, which is the city of Richmond, as living in an apartment and her occupation is nursing.

My aunt knows quite a bit about the John Edward Farrell line and could answer questions if you want. Just let me know.
