Here's what I've found so far:
Joseph Daly
arr: NY 18 Mar 1904, SS Cedric from Liverpool
destination:424 43 ST, Brooklyn; to Uncle M McCann; last residence: Carron Ireland, (that's in County Claire); he had $5.00 and was in good health.
WWI Draft registration, 1917:
Joseph Daly, age 30
53 Greenwich St, NY
b. July 25, 1886, Carmeglen?, Armagh Ireland
Naturalized citizen
Med build, black hair, dark eyes
1910 census NY: Manhattan
Joseph Daly, 22,boarder, @ W. 19th St, Occ: bartender
Imm: 1904; NA
Joseph does not appear in the Soldiers of the Great War, or the NY casualties of WWI;
I feel if he truly died in the War, his name would appear in WWI casualties/Missings, etc.
The military records for WWI are pretty good, considering the enormous losses that we had; if you knew his other name 'J'> it might help...probably James or John...also, NY has very good WWI records; his name should at least appear on a Memorial, etc. But again, the Joseph J. who received the medal was an officer.
I am not related.
you may write to me at home.
