Gately Family Genealogy Forum
Margaret, Thank you for your response. Unfortunately I know little more. According to the US cencus they came from Ireland in 1864, 1865 or 1867 (different census reports have different dates). His obituary said he lived with relatives for a couple years in New Jersey and the census shows he was in Illinois by 1870. It also confirmed that he came from Rosscommon but nothing more about where.
I can not find the name of his father. According to the US cencus, his mother was Margaret and was living with him. She was listed as being born in 1820. His obituary conflicts with this and says his parents did not come to America but makes no further mention of them Could Margaret have been an aunt? Any thoughts on how I can see if there was a Barney Gately born about the correct time? Thanks for any ideas and sorry I have so little information. Hart Gately
