Megan,
Thank you for the very quick response :-) I wondered if I would ever hear from anyone! What a great surprise.
Your research , so far, has been a great help to me. I only have hard facts for my grandmother Charlotte. John Foley died before I was even born and my siblings where too young to remember.
I found (through Familysearch.org) the marriage record of James and Bridget. This is where I find the reference to Kennedy.
Below that is a copy of a sensus record that shows John Foley born 1907 (son of Bridget Foley) - here I am just guessing that this is my grandfather - because I know for sure that my grandmother was born in 1906 and I assumed that they would have been around the same age. Thank you for the information you have provided - this might help my research a bit ! If anything comes up on your fact checking would you please let me know? If I am able to find any details on the Convey family I will certainly share the facts with you. (This could be a full time job.
I only just started my research within the last few days and I was so surprised to find your post on this site.
I do greatly appreciate the Bridget story:-)
Again, thank you so much.
Nice to meet you too!

All the best , Maureen
