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.
