I am looking for Edward and Thomas Connolly who emmigrated to America circa 1900?
I am looking for my grandmothers 2 brothers Edward and Thomas Connolly who I believe emmigrated to America circa 1887-1900. They probably travelled from Qieenstown to New York. I dont think that they travelled together but went different years. They were born in 1876 and 1877 respectivly. Their parents names were Martin Connolly and Bridget McTigue. They came from Sonnagh, Kilchreest, Co. Galway, Ireland. They had 2 sets of twin brothers older than them and after Thomas was my grandmother Mary Connolly. there were 2 other sisters and 2 brothers after that, 11 children in total. I think that 1 or both of them may have become priests and may have gone to Chicago.
Is there anyone who may know anything about these 2 brothers. If so I would love to hear from you.
This is all the information I have concerning these 2 brothers that would have been my granduncles. One other thing, they could have also joined the policeforce but I think that unlikely, it probably the priesthood.
