*Still looking for answers as of Oct 2019*
I know that this is a longshot but, my grandparents on my maternal side were from Sligo, Ireland.
John Joseph "Sean" Carey
Catherine "Cathleen/Cath" Veronica (Dempsey) Carey
I am interested in finding more out about Sean's parents' and lineage and Catherine's older sister who was called Elsie, daughter of Mary Kate (Hunt, Dempsey) Reilly and any other information such as relatives I might not be aware of. I've gotten stuck tracing my lineage as i've hit their parents and because I also have zero information about my paternal side.
Sean's family were from Sligo where he was born in January 1924. His siblings were Phillip, Marcella, and Catherine. His father was Alexander and I believe his mother may have been called Catherine as well but I am not 100% sure. He lived there until he joined the RAF as a courier in India and moved to Manchester where he worked on Oil Rigs as well as Construction building houses.
Before she passed last year, Catherine told me that she had an older sister that had a different father called Elsie. She may have had the last name of Hunt since that's what her mother's maiden was, but i'm not certain at all. She could have been born possibly in 1910's in Dublin as Catherine recalled her being a "woman in her teens" when she was born in 1925 and with Mary Kate being born in 1897/98. In the 1930's Catherine and their mother Mary Kate went to Sligo to take care of their ailing Gran. Elsie stayed in Dublin because she had a husband and/or children at this point. According to my gran they stayed in touch by writing letters even after she moved to Rusholme and then Chorlton, Manchester, England but as my grandmother got older they lost touch.
If you can help thank you so much!
