Hi, Danny:

Don’t know if this helps, but here goes:

My great grandmother Bridget Falvey was baptized in Cloyne, Cork, Ireland in 1846. Her parents were Johanna (Hannah) Walsh and Edmond/Edward (Edm in Ireland, Edw in England) Falvey. Bridget had the following sibs: John, baptized 1828; Margaret, baptized 1831; Mary, baptized 1832; Johanna, baptized 1836; Ellen, baptized 1838; James Vincent, born abt 1842; William, baptized 1843; Elizabeth, baptized 1849; Joseph, baptized 1852. And Richard, born abt 1858 in England. Sometime between Joseph and Richard the family moved from Cork, Ireland to Somerset, England.

In 1865 James Vincent married in a Methodist Church in Cheltenham, England. On the certificate his father is listed as Edward Falvey, and although dad’s profession was whitesmith in Ireland, here he is listed as a civil engineer.

Bridget (my great grandmother) was married twice in Cork: first to a provisions merchant on Coal Quay and in 1872 to my great grandfather Philip Barry at the RC church of Sts Philip and Paul. They settled in Blackrock where Bridget died in 1890.

James V. became a US citizen ~1882. When my grandfather and his brothers came to the US at the turn of the century they stayed with their uncle in Manhattan. James’ profession has been listed as engrosser, lithographer, law stationer. He died in 1906 and is buried in St. Raymond’s (RC) cemetery in the Bronx, NY.

James’ surviving (second/ subsequent?) spouse, was nee Rose C. La Marque from Louisiana. There are Falveys in the New Orleans area. I find no record of James V. entering the US via Ellis Island (NY), the more traditional entry point for Europeans, so possibly he entered through Louisiana, stayed with relatives, met Rose and then moved on to NY? That’s speculation.

In my searches I have concentrated on my great grandmother and her brother in New York, so I don’t know what became of the other siblings. Please let me know if any of this sounds familiar. Thank you so much!

Mr 2nd great grandmother was Hannah Falvey, whose parents were Edmund (Edward) and Hannah Walsh. She was probably Bridget's sister. She came from England to Australia in 1858 and married Edwin Tipper in July of that year. My second great grandfather came from Bath. Hannah died in 1878 in Maitland.
