I'm trying to find where in Ireland My G-G-Grandmother may have come from. Her maiden name was Mc Aleer. She married Robert Hagerty/Haggerty around 1875-1879. The 1880 census lists her with her sister Annie Mc Aleer. Maria (pronounced Mariah) Mc Aleer Hagerty was born in NY in 1854 and her sister Annie in 1856. They list parents as born in IRE. Annie lived with her sister in 1900 and becomes a Smith. In the 1900 census it lists parents as born in Scotland?
Any ideas on where to search? My grandmother insists they were from Ireland.
