I'm looking for information on the Keefe's in the mid 1800's who immigrated to Bellows Falls VT.
My great grandfather was James Keefe born about 1852 died 1924 at City Hospital Boston, MA. He married Mary A. Lynch who was born in Wells River Vt to Thomas Lynch and Anne O'Conner. They lived in both Bellows Falls and Walpole NH and I believe was born in County Cork, Ireland. I think he may have had relatives, perhaps brothers who lived in Bellows Falls as well. I found a Gazetteer (1884/85) of the area that lists the following Keefe's:
David, James, James 2nd, John, John O, Michael, and Patrick. Several were listed as working in a paper mill and I know my great grandfather worked in a paper mill. His death certificate lists his father as Arthur.
