  • Notes 
    • Michael might have come to the US prior to 1840 but after 1830. There is one family - John Boyle - where Michael might fit in the 1830 census of Randolph, but there is no real proof that it is.

      It appears that Michael remarried after Rosanna died. He and his second wife appear in the 1870 and possibly the 1880 census, as well as the 1865 Massachusetts State Census. I still have not found a marriage record for them or a death record.

      Looks like the extant records for Clonbroney start around 1828.
