  • I am thrilled! I wish I could tell my father, but he's no longer living. i even worked in an Irish Studies department, but I never figured out any of my family in Ireland. Years ago, I tried to figure out where "Tractor" was, because of a transcription error! When I finally got William's obituary, I at least knew it was Cork, but I still didn't put it together. Thank you so much!

  • That would be cool! Thanks to your information, I was easily able to find 8 children of Patrick Delay and Ellen Leahy in total. I didn't find a Mary. That's as far as I have gotten for now.

    MaryF, I was just downloading the baptismal record for William Delay, when I looked at the image more closely. It turns out that Mary Delay is listed as a sponsor! Maybe she is your relative.
