I've been searching and searching, with no luck, for the parents/ancestors of Joseph Duffy. There seems to be no record of him before 1910... He was born February 8, 1877 and died September 26, 1950. Him and his wife, Mary Seloover, lived in Sherman, South Dakota and are buried in the Garretson, South Dakota cemetery. They had several kids, including Homer, Laurence, Fairy, Myron, and Earl. There was a different Joseph Duffy born in 1877 in Iowa, who married a Mary Pirsch and is buried in Oldham, SD. This is not the same person. Any information about Joe before 1910 is greatly appreciated! Thank you!!

Was your grandfather Joseph Duffy born Feb. 1877, mother Bridget and father Thomas? Did he die in Oldham South Dakota in 1960?

My great-grandfather was John Duffy, Bridget's brother. So my grandmother and your grandfather would have been 1st cousins.

There are lots of Duffy descendents. Would love to hear back if your Duffy family and mine are the same.

It's great to hear from you. Sorry I haven't gotten around to responding. From what I can tell, I believe your my grandpa and you are cousins (he's Homer's son). It's been awhile since I've researched Joe because I kept getting dead ends, but I'd love to see the obituary you have!

Thanks for responding!
