The Fogarty family in this part of the world has always had Williams and Johns in it which makes it all the more difficult to sort out.
Daniel and John Fogarty got off the ship DeWitt Clinton in New York City on Mar.18,1851.John went somewhere unknown but Daniel went to Poughkeepsie and in 1853 married Mary Whalan.They had eight children born as follows:John-1857;Daniel-1859;Mary-1861;-William-1864;Thomas-1867;Catherine-1870;Robert-1870;Helen-1872.The first child,John was my great-grandfather.He left Poughkeepsie about 1875 to work in Meriden,CT.After he died in 1889 his widow took the three remaining children and moved to Waterbury,CT where my father was born.
I have a lot of info on John and the last born child of Daniel & Mary,Helen but I'm lacking info on the others.If you could spread this stuff around maybe some of Daniel's descendents can shed some light.Any bit of info would be appreciated.There's a bunch of Fogartys buried in St.Peter's Cemetery in Poughkeepsie but I can't be sure which are my ancestors.
I'll share anything my research has uncovered.They can reach me through GenForum or directly at email@example.com.
Look forward to hearing from someone in the clan.
