Need help with Minnie Hooley from Ireland Born abt 1867

+2 votes
I am trying to find the parent's names of of my great-grandmother Minnie Elizabeth Hooley Bullock. On her marriage record (Lexington, MA 1891 to John Bullock Jr) her father's name is listed a William but no mother's name. There is also conflicting information about whether she was born in the USA (Newton Center, Massachusetts) or Ireland as you review the 1900 - 1920 census. I believe Minnie is a nickname for Mary. Any help would be a appreciated!

Hi Frank, thank you. Yes, Emma and Edna's records have Ireland but the other children's birth records have "Newton Center" as do several of the census and her marriage record.  That's what I find confusing. Also, I've been unable to find a birth records in Massachusetts or Ireland for her.
