My 2x great grandmother was Anne Dolphin from Kilglass, Sligo, Ireland. She married Patrick Tuffy. Her parents were Martin Dolphin (b. 1840) and Honora Tuffy. Martin's parents were Patrick Dolphin and Mary Hailly. I don't know if this helps, good luck.

There is one Dolphin in the Sligo telephone book, it might be
worth writing to this person.

1901/1911 Census:

1911 Census:

17 Dunneil, Dromore, Sligo
Thomas Dolphin age 50 has a son Michael S. age 2
Mary Ann 30 married 2 years, 2 born, 2 living
Mary Ellen 1

Most county genealogy offices do not go up to 1935 so you can try looking for the Marriage of a Michael in this records: 1864-1950's (usually more information)


Francis Dolphin born Jan-March 1938 no parents names given

You could try Naturalization record for Michael Dolphin father as it might give his parents names and a place.
