Hi annclare -- this is of great help -- thanks so much! Yes, the problem has been knowing the parents' names of John and Julia. Yes, you nailed it -- that is my family. those are all the names of John's siblings; he was a contractor, and they lived in Stamford so that is definitely them. I think that they left their parents in Ireland when they came over, and I haven't been able to find a document listing their names. I am going to try to get the death certificates for John and Julia -- thank you!!!
