Earliest known ancestor Patrick Henry Driscoll b. 1862, Lemont IL.
My Great Great Grandfather Patrick Henry Driscoll was born in Lemont Illinois in 1862. The Census data is confused with the 1900 Census stating that his father was born in Massachusetts and the 1910 and 1930 state that his father was born in Ireland. There is no inconsistency with his mother who was born in Ireland. Patrick Henry was married an still living in Lemont, Illinois in 1900 but resided on Green Street on Chicago's Southside by 1910. He would live there the rest of his life which ended on September 30, 1938.
Patrick Henry Driscoll was married to a Mary Leahy who was born in Hoboken, Hudson, New Jersey in May of 1867. How she met Patrick Henry or came to Chicago is unknown. They were married in Chicago On November 28, 1889 (Cook County Marriage Lic.#00146993).
Mary's mother and father came to the USA along with her oldest brother John around 1862. The dates are estimated on the fact that Brother John was born in Ireland 1861 and second oldest brother William,Jr was born in New Jersey 1863. She also had another brothers born in New Jersey Edward (b.1865).
Patrick Henry and Mary Driscoll had four children. My great uncle John J. Driscoll (b.1890), my Great aunt Mamie "May"(b.1892), my grandfather James P. Driscoll (b.1897) and my great aunt Florence (b.1902).
