Susan: I just found your posting. I have a Laffey connection but its from my 2nd Grt grandfather. His name was Patrick and he was married to a Mary Mulligan. They had three children, Peter, John, and Mary. The boys were born in Ireland while Mary was born in Wales. Mary married John Mark Enright in St Louis in 1895. They came to the US abt 1883 and settled in St Louis. Patrick died in 1895 in his 52 year. His wife Mary died in 1884 at the age of 40.
do you have any info on the brothers that came over. Family stories have been that Patrick came over with other Laffey members but no one really knows. Thanks for any tidbits...its been over 20 years that I ve been trying to get out of St Louis with the Laffeys and Enrights. My Irish clans are definitely CLOSED MOUTH........Mandi
