Dear John, I have ancestors Patrick Gately born around 1814-1864 married to Bridget (?) 1822-1889 that emigrated to the Boston around the 1840's. He was a stonemason and he and his wife are buried in Roslindale, MA. I believe that some of their children were born in Ireland and the rest in and around Boston. Their childrens' names are Patrick, William, Maria, Martin, Francis, Gertrude, Josephine, Michael. We were always told that they came from County Galway. Is it possible that they could be related to your Patrick Gately?
