Thank you for your reply. I first have to apologize for many years of hit or miss approach to family search.
We finally found some records in Kilkenny and Longford just this past month thanks to a cousin in Ireland.
Our Thomas Martin Broderick was born 1851 somewhere near boston.
John Maurice Broderick once replyed to a message " Somewhere near Boston :-) " Tuesday May the 7th 2013 there is a Broderick meeting in Johnstown, Kilkenny. Dotted along the back roads of Northern Kilkenny are many scattered Broderick families, but to me they all point the way back to land of O'Bruadair.
Our James Broderick was married to Mary Fogarty Tullaroan 1850 and many Sun Praire WI. Fogarty families could trace back. The obituary points out people from Westport attended the funeral.
Thankyou for your reply, Now if I can find a match.
Deerfield and Cerro Gordo are familar nearby places.
There are several family stories that happen in that area.
