    Family Ellen Shea,   b. 16 Jun 1871, Treanmanaugh, County Kerry, Ireland Find all individuals with events at this location,   d. 14 Aug 1915, Boston, Suffolk Co., Massachusetts Find all individuals with events at this location  (Age 44 years)  [12

    Address:
    St. Peter's Roman Catholic Church, Dorcester 
    • Marriage was witnessed by Patrick Moriarty (Daniel's brother) and Mary Shea (Ellen's sister?).

      The state record of the marriage dates it to 20 Apr 1897 while the church dates it 21 Apr 1897. Both record the record on 22 Apr 1897. I presume that 21 Apr is the marriage and 20 Apr is the license date.

  • Notes 
    • From the Birth Certificate of Daniel Moriarty:
      Father of Moriarty brothers & sisters - Daniel Moriarty
      His father - Daniel Moriarty (name signed with x on birth certificate)
      His Mother - Ellen Connor
      Date of birth - April 2, 1871 (birth registered April 7, 1871)
      Occupation of Father - Labourer
      County of Kerry
      Superintendent Registrar's District - Caherciver
      Birth Register in District of Glanbehy
      Place of Birth - Ahane (This must be the local village)

      In the 1900 Census, he is listed as having been married 3 years, immigrating in 1893, she in 1892.

      In the 1910 Census, he is enumerated as Donald D., age 37, giving a birth date of 1873. He immigrated in 1893 and was naturalized.

      In the 1920 Census, he is listed as having immigrated in 1886 and was naturalized in 1900. Ellen is not in the house, having died in 1914. They are the second family living at 12 Perkins St. The other family is that of Michael Sheehan. For some reason all of the children are listed as being born in Vermont, which is absolutely not the case. Also, in this census, he is listed as speaking Irish as his first language and being 54 years old. Perhaps someone else answered for them in this case.

      In the 1930 Census, he has moved next door to 14 Perkins St. and is still next door to the Sheehans, though Michael is no longer there. His widow Ellen is head of household.
