I am looking for a Dooley connection from Co Galway, Ireland and currently looking to East Galway. Our tree begins with brothers Edward Dooley (whitesmith) and Lawrence Dooley (cattle dealer) b c1790's. Edward's children being Mary and 9 unknown brothers b 1820/30's (immig USA).
Lawrence's children were Patrick, Bridget, Mary, Martin, Thomas, Lawrence Jnr, William and Catherine.
Lawrence and most of his family immigrated to England between 1851 and 1861. Lawrence died in England, but most of his children immigrated to USA.
I thought the whitesmithing trade could be a good clue to any Dooleys out there with connections to the metal trade.
If you think you may have a connection, we would love to hear from you.
