clarac--there is a biography of James Michael Curley that I read several years ago. I think it's called Rascal King. The author did a little--not much genealogy on Curley. Curley had just one brother. Curley has no living descendants. His brother had a son who was the caretaker of the property in Jamaica Plain up until a few years ago when he died. Curley's brother has no living descendants. Curley's parents were both immigrants from Galway. I heard many years ago that Curley's mother had relatives living in Lowell when they first came to the US. If there is a relationship, check with Curley's mothers side first.
