New Haven, CT area-Higgins, Falsey, etc.

I am researching the following in the New Haven area:

In the Fair Haven section of New Haven:
the Higgins and Falsey families in the Irish section:
James and Bridget Higgins, b. probably between 1850-75
They had three sons, William, Joseph, James, and daughter Loretto born 1896.
Loretto married William Falsey, had 4 children: William, Mary, Nina, Loyola Mary (1918-1996).
Loyola Mary married John Peter Welsh of Carlinville, IL, had four children, one of whom is my father.

William Falsey was also from Fair Haven, his father was probably named Patrick or Michael. William had 2 brothers, one definitely named Michael and the other probably Francis, and a sister Nell whose married name was Malone.

I have some more info on the descendents of William and Loretto and those of their siblings if anyone thinks they have a connection.

Also in the Italian section of Fair Haven: Gennaro and Virginia Ruggiero, born probably around 1850 in Santa Valentina, Naples, Italy, immigrated first to Rosario, Argentina, then to Fair Haven. Gennaro was a barber. They had seven children: Firenza/Florence (my great-grandmother), Carmine, Ruggerio/Roger, Gennaro/Gerald/Gerry, Joseph, Emma, and Olympia.
Florence married Gavino/John Ardolino, son of Andrea and Gelsomina Ardolino, also from Naples to Fair Haven. John had siblings Antonio, Angelo, Frank, Leo, Michael, Margaret, Mary, and Sam/Savero.
John and Florence had 8 children: Gelsomina (Jessie), Margaret, Andrew, Edward (Eddie), Calvin William (Bill), Anthony (Tony), Gilda, and Edith.
Edith married Albert Carbonari of West Haven, son of Claudina Montesi and Francesco Carbonari, also from Italy. Albert has a sister Albertina (Tina), married to Constantine Arcucci.

Again, I have more info on the descendents of most of the above if anyone thinks they have a connection. Thank you.
