This could be Michael and Mary’s children before 5 of the seven children died. Actually Alice should be listed unless she was visiting family or unless Mary is Alice Mary? I was told her name was Alice May but on other census it says Alice F. so I am not sure. We just wonder where the other five children went??? Also, if they had one James who was born in 1870 and he died, would they also name a another son James who was born later?? Or did some of the children die before they left Ireland? They had no children on the boat with them.

This could be Michael and Mary’s children before 5 of the seven children died. Actually Alice should be listed unless she was visiting family or unless Mary is Alice Mary? I was told her name was Alice May but on other census it says Alice F. so I am not sure. We just wonder where the other five children went??? Also, if they had one James who was born in 1870 and he died, would they also name a another son James who was born later?? Or did some of the children die before they left Ireland? They had no children on the boat with them.
