McCloskey Family Genealogy Forum
Hmmn...my McCloskey ancestors lived only in NY not in PA. JJ and Felix's parents were born in Northern Ireland...Henry was born in Maghera, Derry. Henry's father's name was also Felix and I've seen the name Felix McCloskey on the genealogy boards so suspect there is some connection there.
JJ McCloskey's connection to the Booth family was through theater beginning in California around the time of the Gold Rush. He also knew John Wilkes Booth and writes about it in his memoirs.
