Thanks I'll make note of it. All I know for sure is that Mary Kehoe
married James Charles Smith in 1892 at St. Malachy's. All of their
children were baptized there. According to the 1900 Census - she came from
Ireland at age 2 in 1872. He was born in 1860 in WI. I have tracked a
James Charles Smith whose information matches what I know of mine to San
Antonio Tx. Where he lived with his brother until he died. I can't find
Mary (for sure) after the 1900 census. There are a few Mary Smiths in
Chicago! I can't find her for sure in the 1880 census either, times like
this I would do anything for a peek at the 1890 census!!

I don't know if there is a blood connection here to my Mason ancestors,
but I have John and Mary Kehoe as Godparents to my gr aunt Agnes Mason (m.
Anthony Ryan). Agnes is the daughter of Matthew Mason (Co. Clare) and Mary
Jane O'Brien (Co. Tipperary). The 1/27/1878 baptism took place at St.
Columbkille church here in Chicago.

The records will be available online eventually. I volunteer to help
transcribe the records but I have all the information at home on my
computer. I have transcribed census records, death indexes, marriage
records, and some birth records. The LDS's goal is to get as much online and
accessible for free as possible.
