 Additional Info:
My Grandmother, Bridget Daly was married in 1913 in New Jersey and one of the witnesses for
her marriage was a Margaret Kendelan.  I was able to find Margaret in the U.S. census and 
eventually discovered she was the daughter of a Peter Daly who was living in Saugerties, New
York.  Based upon the Census data for Peter he would have been born about 1836 and could have
been a sibling to my Joseph making Margaret a 1st cousin (very speculative at best).

* Pertaining to the single entry of Catherine Daly in the "Siblings" field - the book
"Melancholy Madness" by Michelle McGoff contains information regarding the imprisonment of
Joseph Daly and in it she indicates that Joseph's sister Catherine Farrell was one of the
people who came to visit Joseph while he was in jail.  Joseph began his prison sentence on 
March 1883 at Mountjoy Prison, Dublin and was released 7 years later from Downpatrick Prison 
on 21 Jan 1890.

Patric was enumerated in the 1901 Ireland census at his home in Kilmurry living with his son
Arthur
