Patrick Lally 1825
Born: 1825 County Mayo, Ireland
The Belmullet Roman Catholic Parish recorded baptismal records for the first four children listed here. The record for Dennis lists Doolough, a fishing village on the west Mayo coast, as the townland of his parents.
The photo on the right was taken Jun 2012 and shows the road sign for Doolough. The sign is in Irish because the townland of Doolough is located within a Gaeltacht. In Ireland, this is a district where the government recognises that Irish is the predominant language.
Their son Anthony was born three days later on May 16, 1865. He was baptized in Scranton, PA on May 21, 1865.
President Abraham Lincoln had been assassiinated on April 14.
On Feb 12 1912, Mary Connell Lally passed away at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Sarah Lally Manley. Her death certificate identified her parents as Anthony Connell and Bridget Sweeney, both born in Ireland.
Pat Lalley, a grandson of Dennis, has published a much more extensive genealogy website on his family called the Seventh Son.
