I would very much like to hear from anyone descended from the following Trenton, Mercer Co., NJ families:

Michael and Catherine Burns Duffy settled in Trenton, about 1889, with their family. Their children were:

1. John Duffy (b. 1857) married to Mary Bridget Daley. He was a grocer in the Whitehorse area. I believe his son owned a gas station and his grandson a car wash business.

2. Ellen Duffy (b. 1861) married to John Coleman. Among their children was Catherine Coleman, model and actress.

3. Thomas Duffy (b. 1862) married to Julia Conners. Among their children was Helen Duffy Kerwick, who I met in 1976. Her brother, George Duffy, once lived in Lafayette, CA.

4. Catherine Duffy (b. 1864) married to George Marshall. This family apparently moved to Wisconsin. They had two children, George and Ella. The younger George worked in an airplane plant, during WWI. Ella may have been a nun.

5. Mary Duffy (b. 1867). Nothing is known about her. She likely died young, while living with her family in Longton, Staffordshire, England.

6. George Duffy (b. 1869) married to Katherine Burke. They moved to Watertown, NY, where he worked as an insurance executive. He was my grandfather.

7. Bridget Duffy (b. 1872). Nothing is known about her. She probably died as a child in Longton, England.

8. Ann Duffy (b. 1872). Above Bridget's twin sister, she also probably died as a child.

9. Mary Duffy (b. 1874). Mary died in Trenton (1910) and was unmarried.

For more information about this family, you may contact me directly at or leave a message on this forum. Thank you!
