I am directly related to a Carey family that immigrated to Necedah in 1846 (approx.) and had seven children(Martin, Eleanor, James, Winifred, Patrick, Catherine, Edward) there. The parents who lived there until 1871 were Patrick and Bridget Carey. It is possible that they sent for more relatives from Ireland. They moved to Albert Lea Minnesota after that.
