!!Celia Donlon b.1851 Ire.imm.1882-USA!!

Hello,

I am searching for information regarding my paternal g-grandmother Celia Donlon or a variant of this surname. She was an Irish Catholic born abt. 1851. In the year 1882 Celia then aged 29 immigrated to the USA, and I suspect that she had family in the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area. We believe that she may have joined a family relative who was living in this area. At some point she and a Bernard Joseph Butler married and in 1889-90 they had a son named after his father, this information was accquired on the 1920 census for the Cleveland, Ohio area where the father and sons occupation is listed as that of running a Pool Hall at that time. Celia's husband Bernard, aka at times as Benjamin Butler died abt. 1921-22 in the Cleveland area. Celia died on April 28,1936
and was buried in Calvary cemetary on Miles Ave. according to my now deceased father William Martin Butler 1921-1987.

If anyone has information as to the family of Celia in either Pennsylvannia or Ireland, I would be most gratefull as we've no clue if Celia had siblings or who her parents were.

Kindest regards, desperately seeking g-grandmother's family,
Pamela Mondt
