I am trying to identify the parents and home town in Ireland of a John Coffey, born about 1843.
I only have information about his wife Anna Joynt. Her family was from Askeaton, Limerick. It is possible he was from the same area but it looks like they met and married in Connecticut.
1880 Census shows him as working as a Moulder. Their children, Helen, Hugh, Battie, Mary, John, William, Jeremiah, and James, were all born in Connecticut.
