Three Quirk sons are living in the home of Bartholomew and Margaret Connally listed as step-sons. Elizabeth is not listed in the home.

There is a marriage record for a Margaret Quirk to a Bartley Connally 27 May 1875 Vanderburgh Co., IN Bk. 8, p. 480.

Assumption Church records lists baptismal records for last three of the Quirk children listed above. Also listed are children for a Bartholomew Connelly and Christina (nee unknown). I suspect this could be the Bartly Connally listed as marrying Maggie Quirk in 1875.

There is also a Bartley Conlely who marries an Emma Gibson Slade in 1883. I could find no death record for a Maggie Connally / Conley / Connley and found no divorce record either.

Martin Co., IN death and cemetery records were checked by a  RAOGK volunteer for Margaret Connally [and variant spellings].  She was not found listed.

A Canadian researcher found the baptismal records for the first two Quirk children. Copies on hand. The other three were baptized in Assumption Catholic Church in Evansville. Copies on hand. See Quirk Album.
