Re: Gately's of Boston

In Reply to: Gately's of Boston by Jan True of 387

Hi. My information is really general, but I'm hoping something rings a bell with someone out there. My great grandfather was Thomas Curley, orig. from Galway, came to Roxbury in the 1880s. He married Margaret Glennon, orig. from Roscommon and they lived at 119 Hampshire in Roxbury from 1890-1899, then at 45 Prentiss (Prentice?) St. and 21 Newark St. in Roxbury. They had ten children, nine of whom lived to adulthood: Mary Ellen (died at the age of five,) Katherine (Kitty), Margaret, Mary, Winnie, Annie, Tom, Helen, Etta and John. Margaret (Glennon) Curley died in 1907 and Thomas couldn't take care of the children, so they were split up among family members. I was told that the names of some of the family who took them in were Gately's and Coyne's. If any of this sounds familiar, please let me know. I'm trying to find the first names of Gately family members, but no one in the family remembers. Thanks!
