Michael Lally 1838


My great granfather, Michael Lally was born in Loughrea, County Galway in 1838 or1839. We think, but are not sure, that his parents were Joseph Lally & Honora Kelly.. If they are his parents, his siblings would be Maria b. 1829, Ann or Anna b. 1836, Patrick b. 1842 and Honora b.1843. We think he also had another brother James but can find no record of a James being born to Joseph Lally & Honora Kelly. Michael emigrated to the US in the 1850's, first settling in New York City and moving across the Hudson River to Hoboken, New Jersey where he remained until he died in 1904. He was a butcher by trade, was active in local politics and became Police Commissioner , an office his son Michael, my grandfather also held..
