BRADY of Dublin, Ireland and Holyoke, Massachusetts
Irish natives JAMES AND MARGARET MCTAGGART BRADY arrived in the U.S. in 1869. James was from Dublin (parents CHARLES BRADY AND ELLEN KEARNS) AND Margaret (parents WILLIAM AND CATHERINE (Catherine's surname unknown) MCTAGGART. James was born about 1843 in Dublin; Margaret about 1847 in Virginia, County Cavan. One of their sons was JOHN THOMAS BRADY, my grandfather, born in Holyoke, Mass., Jan. 6, 1874. John moved to Yonkers, New York, where he m. my grandmother ALICIA REGINA HEAFY in 1906. Alicia was the dau. of THOMAS AND ALICE MORRISSEY HEAFY of County Waterford, Ireland. One of John and Alicia's children was my father, FRANCIS (FRANK) JOSEPH XAVIER BRADY, Oct. 26, 1908. Frank m. my mother, ANNA DOLORES CHINNERY, in 1934 in Yonkers. I am looking for the "maiden name" of Margaret McTaggart Brady's mother, Catherine McTaggart. I also have reams of Brady info to share.

Anne Brady is a 100 percent descendant of Irish immigrants. Her father's four grandparents and mother's eight great-grandparents originated in the Emerald Isle. She has had many years of experience in tracking those elusive "Ould Ones."
