MARY LEAHY-IRELAND to NEW YORK
- Researching: DOLAN, SHAW, DEVINE, LEAHY, McCLEMENTS, URBAN, ROBINSON,
CAROLL, EGER and GARLAND.
Areas: Northeastern Seaboard of the USA, Ireland and Germany.
Right now I am concentrating on MARY LEAHY b 1887 and her mother KATE
CAROLL b abt 1860. Her father was DANIEL LEAHY b abt. 1860. They were
all born in Ireland. I have narrowed it down to Cork, Tipperary or
Limerick. Family lore was she came to the US in 1906 alone when she was
16. I can't find her at Ellis Island, because there are 27 MARY LEAHYS
and I don't know which one she is. She naturalized 1914,
As per census records. She married PHILIP DOLAN in New York City on
OCT.10, 1915, he died July 1926. They had one son PHILIP PAUL DOLAN, he
died Oct. 15,1941. MARY died Jan. 1947. Anyone with any info would be

she came in 1906, she was 19. I found her and Philip (I think) in
the 1920 census; gives the 1887 b.d., 1906 arrival, 1914
naturalization, so I think it was the family lore that was off by a
few years. I found a couple of Mary Leahys in the 1910 census; the
one that fits best lived in Richmond, servant in a household with 3
servants, somewhat unusual even then. The only naturalization record
I found showed it was "denied," but there are several courts
immigrants could use so I may not have found the right Mary Leahy. I
found 2 Mary Leahys arriving at Ellis Island in 1906: one age 21 arr
Aug 5, 1906, was headed for her brother's in Plainville OH, the other
was age 24, whereas your Mary was approx 19. When I searched for her
w/her approx birth year, I got none arriving in 1906. She may not
have come through Ellis Island - I believe there were other immigrant
ports, such as Castle Gardens, though I don't know offhand how long
they were used.
