Gately Family Genealogy Forum
Using the Griffith's Valuation and some LDS records, I have determined the following information:
James GATELY married Margaret KEIGHERY (AKA KEACHRY/KEIGHRY/KIEGHRY)
James appears in the GV (1855) in Dysart Parish - Curry Townland
children: Mary (c.1848), Margaret (1851), Patrick (1855), Bridget (1857), Michael (1860) - all born in Dysart Parish
Mary GATELY married Thomas GOODMAN (arranged marriage) - 1867, Dysart Parish
Thomas' father appears in the GV (1855) in Cam Parish - Cuileenoolagh Townland
(note - Curry and Cuileenoolagh are adjacent towns)
children: Winifred (1868), Mary (1869), Ellen (1870) - all born in Kiltoom Parish
Sometime in the mid 1870s (I am not sure exactly when), Thomas GOODMAN died. Mary GATELY then married her "childhood sweetheart" (I am thinking his surname was COYNE) and the family moved to Roxbury, MA. They left Ellen (the youngest) behind. She came to join them in 1886. Eventually, Mary's sister Margaret was living with the family as well.
My aunt reported that one of Mary GATELY's sisters (Bridget, I think) died in 1932 while living in Floral Park, NY. Her inheritance was divided between the GOODMAN children and a single, male GATELY still living in Ireland. I am looking into whether it was Patrick or Michael...
