I don't know if any possible relationship here, but too many common names not to contact you.
I have James FOLAN, born 1861 (son of James FOLAN & Julia) - married about 1900? - to Bridget LYDON, born 1871 - they named their son Martin Joseph FOLAN, who was born March 11, 1904 in East Hartford, Connecticut, USA.

A Barbara R. Foley, born 1902 in Ireland, the daughter of James Folan and Bridget Joyce, married Charles Kemp in 1933 in Gorham, Maine - could she be the sister of your Bridget Folan?

Margaret,
Are you related to Barbara Kemp? She was my Great
Aunt. Bridget Folan Dickerson was my GM.

Hi Cathy,

I don't know if I am related. I had Folans/Foleys who lived in Cornamona, Spiddal, and one of them emigrated to Norwood, Mass, so I have been doing some research in those records.

Do you know yet who are the Foley grandparents of Bridget and Barbara Foley, in other words, who are the parents of their father James Foley? I located the marriage record in Gorham, Maine of Charles Kemp and Barbara Foley on 12 Oct 1933, but didn't find a death record for either person. Did anyone move to Massachusetts in that family?

Hi Margaret,

According to the info I've come across my GGF's parents
were James and Julia Folan.

Yes, both Bridget and Barbara lived in Boston,Ma.

My Grandmother died in 1990, Barbara died in 1993
Charles Kemp died in 1966 all of them in Boston.

Hmmm. My Spiddal Foley ancestors were James Foley and Julia Foley (her maiden name was Foley) But I think they were a little too early to be the same as your James and Julia Foley. I'm guessing that you got the parents' names from the marriage record for James Foley to Bridget Joyce?
