John J & Julia A Connell in PA and/or NY
Posted by: Dianne Connell (ID *****8372) Date: September 24, 2012 at 18:58:39
  of 1961

Hi,

I am trying to find more information about my great grandparents John J and Julia A Connell. I have run into a bit of a dead end because I can't find Julia's maiden name or any information about John J's parents. Here's what I have managed to dig up between census data and what little the family knows. Any new info or suggestions for a newbie on next steps would be greatly appreciated!

John J Connell
born circa 1866 - 1868 in Pennsylvania
father born in Ireland, mother born in New York
age at 1st marriage - 43 (marriage to Julia may be a 2nd marriage)

Julia A (maiden name unknown)
born circa 1872 - 1874 in Pennsylvania
both parents born in Ireland
age at 1st marriage - 38 (marriage to John J may be a 2nd marriage)

Only known child of John J and Julia A Connell is John "Jack" Andrew Connell (my grandfather), born Apr 7, 1913 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.

Family was living in Brooklyn by 1915. John J's occupation from 1915 to 1930 was Waiter. No record of John J or Julia A in the 1940 census. They may have passed away before 1940. Their son Jack was married to my grandmother Viola Falkenthal by then and living with her family in Queens.
