Pat Hayde and Cath Kelly were married 9 May 1813 and had 8 children in the parish of Boherlahan and Dually, Co Tipperary.  The children were born between 1814 and 1834.  They had 4 sons and 4 daughters.

They were farming at Killballyherberry in 1827.  They however defaulted on paying their Tithes (taxes) in 1831 and were probably evicted from the farm at some stage thereafter as they were not on this farm in the 1850s.

Three of the sons emigrated to America.  Pat (b 10 March 1819) was in Albany, New York County by 1850. In 1855 he was noted as having been in Albany for 7 years. This probably means he arrived from Cork on the Brig D.B. on 24 May 1847.

John (b 26 June 1826) probably arrived on the Niagara on 12 Sept 1850 and James (b 4 Oct 1831) probably arrived on Compromise on 7 Sept 1853.  Their surnames were variously spelt as Hayde, Hade, Hayd and Head.

The Family Posts page in this web site on Ballinure explain more about these families in Ireland and their other descendants.

In the 1850 census, Pat was recorded as Head.  This is the surname he was also recorded as in 1860 and 1870.  By 1880 it was Haid.

John and James were both recorded as Hade in 1850, Hayd in 1860, Head and Hade in 1870 and 1880.  Mary, the wife of John, was still living in Albany with her 3 surviving children in 1900 as Hayde.

I have found no trace of anyone else in Albany in 1900.

An advertisement in the Boston Pilot in 1865 sought information on John and James.  It was placed by Martin Dwyer, a nephew.  Martin is probably the son of Mary b 1815, a sister to John and James. It also stated their Irish townland as Ballinure (the closest township to Killballyherberry).

I have not found any descendants of this family and would welcome any further information.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Downlo

The three Albany families can be summarised as:

1) Pat and Mary

  • Ellen b 1859
  • Mary b 1860
  • Margaret b 1862
  • James H b 1864
  • Catherine b 1866
  • Ann b 1868
  • Martha b 1869 (d before 1880)
  • Patrick b 1876
  • John b 1879

This family lived in Park Ave, Albany City up to the 1880s. However there was no trace of anyone in 1900.

2) John and Mary

  • Margaret b 1855
  • Hannah b 1858
  • John b 1858 (d 1858)
  • James J b 1862 (Hayde in 1900 and 1910)

This family lived in Schuyter St then Mulberry St, Albany City. Some of the family were still in Albany up to the 1950s but not in more recent times.

3) James and Mary

  • Margaret b 1855 (d before 1870)
  • Mary b 1857
  • John b 1862
  • Patrick b 1864 (d 1864)

This family lived in Bassett then Cherry St, Albany City up to the 1870s.  There is no trace of them from 1880 onwards.

Albany was a large city and a hub for transportation in the mid 1900s.  There is however no obvious reason why Patrick settled in Albany when he arrived in 1847. He was a labourer in 1850 and a servant in 1855. He didn’t marry until circa 1857 so it couldn’t have been any in law influence.
