To Salley Mitchell
Hi I'm Jerry Garrity, from Chicago. My greatgrandfather is Edward Gerrity (Garrity) who came to U.S (NYC) on the ship PROGRESS, arrived July 7, 1848. His wife was Catherine Ackerman Gerrity (Garrity). They arrived in NYC but I lose tract of them until 1855 in Chicago, St bridget's Parish where their children were baptised.
I'm trying to find out where in Ireland they came from. I can give to info from the 1848 date on. Some of it is sparse. Fax me if you are interested.
