Bridget was enumerated with her mother Catherine in the 1901 & 1911 Ireland census.

In her ship manifest, Bridget indicated she was going to join with her sister Margaret
Welch in Middletown, NJ

The child Mary Catherine died at a young age.  I have seen a few references that listed
her name as Catherine May.

During an instant message communication with Heather Riggs (Helen's granddaughter), the
following information was exchanged while Helen was taking in the backgroud (in 2007)...
1.  The birth dates for Helen & Richard are listed above.
2.  Helen attended Red Bank Catholic School.
3.  The month & year of Mary Catherine's death recorded above.
4.  Bartley Rabbit was a policeman in either Long Island or Staten Island. he had 3/4 kids.
    She was only at his house twice. she remembers visiting him when they took the trip to
    New York or his sister's house. she doesn't recall the other sister's name but that
    her family tried to marry her off to her uncle Thomas but it never worked out. Helen
    doesn't remember who Bartley was married to but recalls that his sister is Molly 
    McLaughlin.
5.  Jack Welch was Chief of Police in Oceanport and Helen went to school with him.
6.  Ann Nolan was Helen's best friend. Her mothers name was Margaret and her father's name
    was Thomas and she had two sisters (Margaret/Mary) and two brothers named (James/
    Thomas).
7.  Helen had five children: Evelyn, Fred, Richard, Catherine, and Thomas. My mom is
    Evelyn and has two kids.  Fred has three kids. Richard has three kids, Cathrine has
    three kids and Thomas has two kids
