    • Hello William,

      I am not real clear on this at all but I think you may be related to my husband. I have in my possession this obituary.

      MRS. JAMES CAREY

      Mrs. Margaret (Griffin) Carey wife of James Carey, 1046 North Main St., died this morning at Waterbury Hospital after a long illness.

      Born in County Kerry, Ireland, daughter of the late John and Mary (Conway) Griffin, she was a resident of Waterbury for the past 27 years, living in the North End. Prior to coming to Waterbury, she was a resident of Willimantic for 15 years. She was a member of St. Thomas Church.

      Besides her husband, she is survived by six sons, James, Thomas, John, Donald, Richard and Edward Carey; three daughters, Mrs. Richard Geghan, Mrs. William Hebert and Mrs. Salvator Palmento; 13 grandchildren; ? great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews, all of Waterbury.

      The funeral will be held Friday at 8:15 a. m. from the Mulvill Funeral Home, 270 West Main St. to St. Thomas Church for a solemn high Mass at 9. Burial will be in Calvary Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home tomorrow and Thursday from 2 to 10 p. m.

      *A few of the words on the right side were cut off.

      I also have a copy of a funeral card that has:

      Margaret Carey
      Died August 7, 1956

      My husband is the grandson of Margaret Mary (McCarthy) Young , and her parents were Patrick McCarthy and Mary Griffin. I am not sure what county Margaret was born in, probably Kerry. But I do have a copy of her sisters birth registration which was registered in the District of Ardfert or Ardfelt-Tralee in the County of Kerry. The family was living in Ballymcquin. I apologize for some of this spelling, I am not real familiar with Irish location names.

      Would like to hear from you please.
