CAFFERTY FAMILY OF PENNSYLVANIA & MCLEOD COUNTY, MINNESOTA
Posted by: Mary Huss (ID *****4678) Date: December 01, 2004 at 06:26:13
  of 24

There are still Caffertys from this family in Winsted, Minnesota in McLeod County. Does anyone know the eleventh child of Bryan and Margaret's? Does anyone know the town in Mayo County, Ireland that Bryan and Margaret's parents came from and their parents' names? Can anyone fill in any blanks for me? Did Bryan have a brother living in the area as there appears to be another Cafferty line in Hale Township in McLeod County in Minnesota. Some of the children stayed in Pennsylvania. I believe one or more may have died working in the coal mines in Pennsylvania. I believe this is why Margarett wanted to move to Minnesota. Does anyone know why John and Sabina (Cafferty) Sullivan both died so young and where they're buried? I have some additional information I'd be happy to share. Here is the Cafferty family I'm working on:

There was a record of three Sullivans being transferred to St. Mary's Cemetery in south Minneapolis, but it does not appear to be the correct names.

According to the 1880 census, she was fourteen-years old and was a servant in the home of Joseph Schulenburg on First Avenue North in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Thomas was a Switch something with the railroad. Haracceve was a clerk at the telephone company. According to the 1930 census, she and Thomas were living in Minneapolis in District 115.
