Searchin for my grandmother Nellie ellen Costello who believed to be born 1856-1863 in West Stockbridge, MA
1880 US Fed Census for Great Barrington, Berkshire MA lists a John Costello, born in Ireland, age 59, workin as laborer. Catherine Donahue born in Ireland, age 48, keepin house with children Nellie 23, Michael 19, Mary 16, John 16, & Patsey 11. John Costello born in Ireland, age 35,- Catharine Donahue born in Ireland, age 25, were from West Stockbridge, MA and married in Pittsfield MA 24 Jan 1855 by Catholic Priest E H Purcell. Does the Catholic church maintain any documents of marriages, baptism, deaths or births. Would appreciate the address of Catholic Church in Pittsfield, MA What county is Pittsfield in? Does it have a Marriage registry like the one Great Barrington has and how may one obtain a copy of Pittsfield marriage registry for 24 Jan 1855. Doubt if any newspaper was around to carry marriages or deaths in 1855. However, I would appreciate any info or guidance to obtain further info on the Costello & Donahue family of West Stockbridge, MA God Bless!
