Edward and Catherine

Edward and Catherine Liddy/Leadon had 8 children in the Killenaule parish in Tipperary, Ireland in the 1850s and 1860s. They were living in Ballinure at the time. Their origins are outlined in the Ballinure posts page.

Edward died of a fever in the Cashel workhouse aged 40 on 20 March 1865, leaving Catherine and the 8 children of:

  • Patrick b 1850
  • John b 1852
  • Catherine b 1853
  • Elizabeth b 1855
  • Ellen b 1857
  • Edward b 1859
  • Mary b 1861
  • Bridget b 1863

The Ireland land valuation records showed that they probably lived at plot 12 in Ballinure in the 1850s. At the time, Hayde families lived on plots 10, 12a, 19 and 17b. These were all small plots of land centered around the villages of Ballinure and Noan.

The valuation records showed that they left this plot in the late 1860s – which is consistent with the death of Edward and their emigration to America.

In 1870, Cath was with sons Patrick and John in New York. Also with them was John Leddy, presumably a brother of Caths’.

Patrick probably arrived in 1868 although I have not found any arrival records of the others nor of John Leddy. Edwards’ naturalization records of 1886 said he arrived 1871. Patrick was naturalized 1872 and John 1876. Patrick was a driver (probably of a train), John a brakeman and Edward a fireman when they were naturalized.

By 1880, Patrick had married Sarah Wiley and John had been joined by Edward, Kate and Nellie (Ellen). Patrick was at W 35th St and the others at W 32nd St in Manhattan. Mary also emigrated to NY and married a Michael Smith.  There are no records of Elizabeth and Bridget arriving in America and they presumably died in Ireland.

Patrick (b 1850) and Sarah Wiley

Patrick and Sarah Wiley had 3 children. Cathy in 1876, William James in 1883 and Joseph Patrick in 1886. Patrick died in 1889 and Sarah remarried Christopher Kruger, who had died by 1900. She appears to have had Eugene 1890, Walter 1892 and Sadie 1894 to him. Sarah became a McCarthy in 1903.

William James and Joseph Patrick both married twice and many descendants in New York can trace themselves back to one of these two families.
