I am still searching for my great-great-great grandmother, Emily Devine who emigrated from Ireland to the United States. She was married to Patrick who also hailed from the Emerald Isle. I have no idea if Emily and Patrick were already married before they left their country or if they met and married after their arrival whenever that was. I do know that they had five children- my great-great grandmother, Teresa and her siblings Emily, Sara, William and Joseph. I don't remember how I found out about Teresa's siblings. I came across their names somewhere in my notes. From now on I will document Every little thing. This blog is helping me get organized. it really is... a little at a time... :)
According to Teresa's death certificate (informant was her son, Albert), her mother's maiden name was O'Leary. I have two copies of Teresa's baptismal certificate. One does not have the parents last names and the other has Emily's last name listed as Sheldon. hmmm ?
I have checked census records and I can't find Emily and Patrick anywhere. I will not give up. I like a challenge. I'll just start looking earlier in the day when I'm not so tired from using the computer all day at work. I have five days in a row off next week (extended weekend) which I will use to continue my search for my elusive great-great-great grandmother, Emily.
