My gr-gr-gr grandfather was Daniel J. McCarthy (b. approx. 1840) of Kinsale, County Cork, Ireland. He married Nora Coughlin. Their son, Thomas J. McCarthy (b. approx. 1866) came to NYC in 1888, then married Lizzie Hurley (who was also from Kinsale) in NYC in 1894. We believe there may have been another brother who came over at the same time, Timothy. Their son, Lawrence, married Helen Lesko and had my father, Thomas J. in 1928.
