Migrated to/Born in USA

My G-Grandfather, Jeremiah J. O'Connor (Abt. 1849-1936) was born in Teeranearagh, Cahersiveen, Kerry to John O'Connor and Catherine O'Sullivan. He married Catherine Moriarty (Abt. 1847-1872) on 5 April 1869 at the Chapel of Cahersiveen, Caher, Kerry. They had one daughter, Bridget O'Connor (1870-1951). After the death of Catherine Moriarty. Jeremiah married Mary O'Sullivan (Abt. 1852-1912) on 4 November 1875 at the Chapel of Cahersiveen, Caher, Kerry. Jeremiah and Mary had three children, John, Jeremiah and Catherine before immigrating to the U.S. in 1885 and settling in Hartford, Connecticut, where they had six additional children, Daniel, Michael Mary, Abbie, James and Dennis. It is believed that Bridget O'Connor immigrated to the U.S. in about 1886, though her whereabouts are unknown until she married John Quinn in NYC in 1901. The O'Connor originated from Sussa, where they have farmed the same 128 acres of land for the last 800 years. It is believed that the present residents of the family farm are Jeremy and Anne O'Connor. I am attempting to fill the gaps in my family tree and to identify the origins of my family, including the Moriarty branch. Any assistance would be appreciated.
