Kevin, tell me more of what you know about your Michael O'Keefe.
I know you were searching for an Arthur earlier.
Was Michael born in Ireland?

There was also a Michael and Mary Okeefe in Scott Pa which is in
Allegany co.
Michael born Ire 1833, Mary born Ire 1836 both emigrated 1852
8 children born of this marriage, 2 living (how sad!) none living
with parents.
Michael was farming in Scott Township.


There was a Michael O'Keefe (maybe fr Co Cork) who arrived in 1891,
destination Chicago
arrived NY on May 16 1891 on the "City of Berlin"
I can't tell if he was single or married but no female O'Keefe was
near him on the passenger list.
He may have been traveling with a Thos Keany and Pat Terry, also from
Co Cork and going on to Chicago
