 Additional Info:

Based upon Annie's Declaration of Intention her first arrival in the U.S. was 5 Jun 1891 aboard the SS Britannic. Annie's
age was listed as 20 and she was accompanied by a T. Daly age 35. This is speculation, but based upon the age of T. Daly,
I think it is realistic to assume this was her brother Thomas Daly who later returned to Kilmurry and raised his family
there.

Anna age 24 arrived at the port of N.Y. aboard the SS Teutonic on 29 Aug 1895 and was accompanied by her sister Bridget
Daly age 20 and nephew Thomas McKenna age 11.

Anna age 54 arrived at the port of N.Y. aboard the SS Cedric on 29 Sep 1924 and was accompanied by her nephew Thomas
Daly age 27. Both had U.S. passports, so Thomas obviously arrived prior to 1924.

In the 1910 census Anna is listed as Sister to the head of household Patrick Daly. This finding adds one more child to the list
of children born to Josepth Daly & Bridget Shevlin. Patrick is listed as age 53 making his approximate birth year as 1857
placing him between Thomas and Joseph in order of birth.
Enumerated in the same household was Patrick’s brother Joseph, his nephew Thomas McKenna, his niece Annie McKenna
and his nephew Thomas Daly age 12.

In the 1920 U.S. federal census, Anna is listed as the head of the household at 254 64th Street. Enumerated with Anna
were the following:
Anna McKenna Niece, age 36 born in Ireland. Arrived in U.S. 1908. Naturalization applied for. Worked as a clerk in
  an office (twin to Thomas McKenna).
Thomas McKenna Nephew, age 36 born in Ireland. Arrived in U.S. 1895 on SS Teutonic with Anna Daly. Naturalized in
  1905. Worked as bank clerk.
Thomas Daly Nephew, age 22 born in Ireland. Arrived in U.S. 1907. Naturalization applied for. Worked as bank clerk.
  His age would indicate that he was most likely the son of Thomas Daly and Anne McGroder.

The passenger ship manifest for Thomas Daly in 1907 indicates that he was going to join his aunt Annie Daly living at 301
West 144th St. NYC.

The ship manifest for Anna McKenna in 1908 indicates that she was going to join her brother at 301 West 144th St. NYC.
