I'm just getting started on this. If NY papers did copy ANN HOULIHAN MCINERNEY LAMB'S death notice d.4-17-1885 I would think it would list her NY relatives. So if I'm able to get a copy of the notice we'll have the names. BRIDGET'S parents would be ANN'S generation. Do you have their names? I might be able to order the mircofilm of the NY Times Obits thru the Library Share Program-I've done that with books-does it work with archival material? I'll let you know . Good luck with your search and keep in touch.
