My McGraths were from Tullaherin, R.C. parish of Gowran, Kilkenny. Mary, Catherine (Kate), and Annie arrived in Chicago around 1886, although a brother, Michael McGrath, arrived in 1882. Thomas came later, around 1902, I believe. They were all siblings, born between 1859-1875. Parents were John McGrath and Catherine Kearney. Known Chicago parishes included Nativity, St. Gabriel, St. Rose of Lima, and St. Basil.
I hope this is helpful. If you need any more information, please let me know.
